After watching Cass finally get her first kiss and Dasha suffer through painstaking silence with Nick on The Bachelor last night, we were treated to the first episode of the new Aussie drama, Playing For Keeps.
Going into the show, a lot of us weren’t sure what to expect. Would it be quality television? Would it be cliche? Would it be able to take our attention away from reality TV?
Well, once our leading lady Paige, played by Cecelia (Cece for short!) Peters, walked on to the scene - we knew this was going to be a smash hit.
The show centres on the WAGs of an AFL team in Melbourne, and a new rookie footballer, Daniel (George Pullar), and his girlfriend, Paige, making the transition into the wild world they’ve been flung into.
The Aussie cast is stellar, featuring the likes of Olympia Valance, Isabella Giovinazzo, Annie Maynard, Madeleine West, Jeremy Lindsay Taylor, Jackson Gallahgher, James Mason, and more!
But Cece has really captured our hearts, with her down to earth, refreshing and downright Aussie portrayal of Paige, which makes us laugh at every moment we’re supposed to.
She hits ALL the right marks.
Casting Cece was the perfect choice and Aussies are going to fall in love with her, just like we have!
Already, the nation is impressed with the series and took to social media to share their reactions to the first ep:
You’re going to fall head over heels for the style on this show, too, so you might want to ban yourself from online shopping for a while... or you might send yourself broke...
That ‘prune’ moment really was a highlight.
Tune in for the next episode on Network Ten, on Wednesdays at 8.30pm!
