Genevieve Lemon will feature the new series of Rake, a popular Australian television series, produced by Essential Media and Entertainment. The show first aired on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s ABC1 in 2010. It stars Richard Roxburgh as rake Cleaver Greene, a brilliant but self-destructive Sydney barrister.

The criminal defence lawyer tries to take up the most challenging and disturbing cases that no one wants. His private life is not without drama too.


One of Australia's most established stars, Sydney-born Genevieve Lemon has achieved critical acclaim and award recognition for her role as Mrs Wilkinson in Billy Elliot. Genevieve created the role of Shirl in Priscilla Queen of the Desert alongside her countless other theatre credits.

She is a familiar face on Australian Television, having enjoyed series lead regular credits in such iconic shows as Neighbours, Prisoner and The Young Doctors.

Genevieve has also appeared in a number of films directed by Jane Campion, Sweetie, The Piano and Holy Smoke.

Genevieve most recently played Bunny in Top of the Lake, Jane Campion's latest project where she appears in all 7 episodes of the series alongside Elizabeth Moss and Holly Hunter. She is also in Rake and The Secret River for ABC Australia.
