Molls ain't Molls

Grant Thompson is the extras casting coordinator for Underbelly: Razor, a semi-biographical crime mini-series set in Sydney during the 1920s.

In this interview, he explains how difficult it was to cast authentic looking women to play 1920s prostitutes.

Besides good looks, the basic requirements were:
  • No fake breasts
  • No fake tan
  • No tattoos
  • Hair a single colour
Apparently the pool from which to select young aspiring actresses was very small.

In other words, prostitutes who worked for Tilly Devine in the 1920s looked classier than 'ordinary' girls in 2011.

A woman I see up the shops a bit has a tattoo on her neck! On her neck.
She's twenty somthing and other than the disgusting voluntary disfigurement she has had inflicted on herself she is very attractive.

Poplogs law states if you have a tattoo on your neck you are a fuckwit and should be sterilized.

What about this girl?

Looks like a 1920s hooker.
