Just the Halifax Ma’am: Rebecca Gibney

The actor and EP revives her signature character for a new Nine limited series aimed at a global audience.

Fans of fictional forensic psychiatrist Jane Halifax are well aware that the character has dauntlessly dealt with all manner of unbalanced individuals since her screen debut back in 1994.
