Mandy McElhinney A.K.A. Rhonda To Play Gina Rinehart In TV Movie
Mandy McElhinney, who we all know and love from the Rhonda and Ketut AAMI ads, has landed the role of mining billionaire Gina Rinehart in Nine’s new telemovie.
Entertainment reporter Peter Ford broke the news exclusively to Jules, Merrick and Sophie on 2Day Breakfast this morning.
“It’s a certain look, a certain type that you need to go for, for Gina Rinehart and they have actually cast, I can tell you exclusively, Mandy McElhinney,” he said.
“She of course, well everybody knows her as Rhonda, then Lovechild, has been a big hit and she will take on that very important role of Gina because its hard to get right.”
“I mean the Gina we know, she’s not exactly a laugh a minute. Mandy will really have to try and search for some new dimensions to the woman, but it’s an amazing story,” Ford added.
The series will delve into the ugly legal and financial battle between Rinehart and her family.
