“I’ve chosen this project as my second feature because of the smart and capable protagonist we have in Tilly, and her determination to create community and a sense of belonging,” said Christine Luby. “We need more stories with female leads with agency and I find that Tilly is an inspiration to us all. Creating the town of Crystal Bay with its adorable Little Blue penguins and small town vibes has been so much fun.”

In You, Me and the Penguins, Sursok plays a Compliance and Outreach Manager at the Animal Discovery Institute in San Diego who relocates to Australia to work in the field that she is so passionate about. When she meets Head Zoologist Fletcher (Jason Wilder), who prefers penguins to humans, they initially clash, however, it’s only a matter of time before sparks fly. And penguins… well, they don’t fly.

Sursok, who has been based in the US since the late ’90s, is delighted to return Australia where she first got her big break on Home & Away. “I’m thrilled to be back here in Australia with my family to film,” she said in a statement. “I was really attracted to this positive and inspiring story, and I can’t wait to get underway with the shoot.”

You, Me and the Penguins is the latest romantic comedy shot in Queensland and produced by the Steve Jaggi Company, who recently wrapped Love in Bloom.
