Cate Blanchett returns to TV as lesbian

The Academy Award-nominated actress Cate Blanchett has transformed herself into a lesbian in a huge return to Australian television for an upcoming episode of the hit ABC drama series Rake.

After being off the small screens for 15 years, Blanchett is returning as a lesbian version of Cleaver Greene, the rogue lawyer played by Richard Roxburgh and lead of the series. In the episode Green watches on in horror as his disatrious life becomes the inspiration for a biography film.

Roxburgh, who is also the series’ co-executive producer, said they were privileged to have the famed actress on the series. The appearance comes at a good time, with Blanchett’s popularity growing after her acting skills in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine being rewarded by a Golden Globe, AACTA and Screen Actors Guild Award for her turn in the drama film.
