ROBIN GRIFFIN (Elisabeth Moss)
Detective Robin Griffin has recently returned to Sydney to rebuild her life. Broken and fragile, she is convinced that her work will restore her but haunted by the daughter she gave up at birth. Robin’s search to discover ‘China Girl’s’ identity takes her into the city’s dark recesses and also deep into the secrets of her own heart.  As she gets to know Mary and grapples with the push and pull of this new relationship, her fears grow about the danger Mary may be in, but her hopes also rise about the possibility of a new kind of love. 

MARY EDWARDS (Alice Englert)
Mary was adopted by Julia and Pyke when she was 2 days old. A beloved only child, she wrote to Robin when she was 12, hoping for a reply, but one never came and for years she has struggled with this rejection. Now a mercurial 17 year old who is determined to chart her own path, Mary is swept up in a thrilling relationship with a much older man, Alexander who she plans to marry. 

JULIA EDWARDS (Nicole Kidman)
Julia is Mary’s intelligent, feminist adoptive mother. A secondary school teacher, her fierce, controlling love for her daughter has put them on a collision course, intensified by the fact that Julia has fallen in love with a woman and moved out of the family home a few months ago.  As she and Pyke disentangle their lives, Julia is struggling to figure out how to hold on to a difficult teenage daughter who seems to hate her.

MIRANDA HILMARSON (Gwendoline Christie)
Miranda is an eager new recruit in the Sydney Police force and a fan of Robin’s, whose reputation proceeds her. She is thrilled to be partnered with Robin but can’t seem to get anything right; her open-hearted directness clashes with Robin’s self-contained distance. As the investigation unfolds their partnership surprises both women, and Miranda becomes a forceful catalyst in pushing Robin to face her demons.

A former academic from East Germany in his early 40’s, the charming, charismatic Puss sees himself as a Robin Hood engaged in a provocative life of authentic class warfare. He is generous and kindly to the girls in the brothel he lives above, but as Mary forges a friendship with Robin the depths of his emotional sadism begin to show.   

PYKE EDWARDS (Ewen Leslie)
Pyke is a successful lawyer and Mary’s adoptive father.  A man of integrity and courage, he is calmly working through the separation with Julia, determined to do whatever it takes to keep his daughter close.
