Deborah Mailman, one of Australia’s most renowned actresses, has spent her life appearing on screen, but the Offspring star always finds time in her busy schedule to be on the other side of the television.

The 49-year-old has exclusively revealed her very relatable TV-watching habits, and which shows she can’t get enough of at the moment.

Deborah Mailman always finds time in her busy schedule to be on the other side of the television.


If the TV is on in the background, it’s because I’m “Doing housework, it’s never ending.”

From my spot on the couch I can always reach “My two cats and dog. They’re always patting distance from me.”

When I have a chance to pamper myself I like to “Get a good night of uninterrupted sleep.”

Deborah’s guilty pleasure is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.


I’ll set the scene for a quiet night in with “The house cleaned , the lights dimmed and the TV on.”

But if I’m with friends, no viewing party is complete without “Food.”

If you want to watch TV with me, you should know “I take the left side of the couch. That’s my spot.”

My number one TV snack is A toastie. probably more than a snack but I love a good toastie

But I’d be happy to share with “I don’t know if I’d be happy about it but I would share with my family.”

If I could have one item from any TV character, I’d like “Aunt Viv’s dance moves in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.”

And if I could invite someone famous to watch TV with me, I’d choose “Miriam Margolyes. I think she would be fabulous company, not to mention the stories she could tell.”
