We have been sending heaps of people to “Kings Cross” for the John Ibrahim bio ‘Last King of the Cross‘. As revealed by the Sydney Morning Herald, to avoid the challenges of filming in the real Kings Cross strip, the production team has made an amazing set which replicates Kings Cross, right down to the graffiti!
The article also mentions previous productions set in Kings Cross have had to use other suburban locations, such as Lane Cove to replicate the inner city precinct. Some MCTV members will remember for ‘Underbelly: The Golden Mile’, the Kings Cross sets were put up and down on Longueville Road each night to create the ‘Cross of the 1980s.
Congratulations to everyone who has been to set so far and good luck to those still being submitted. Looks like the show is going to be worth every bit of its $50m pricetag.
