She is playing Australian mother Julia, whose story will intersect with Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss).

Top Of The Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery that begins four years on from the explosive ending of series one, which saw Elisabeth's character investigating the disappearance of the pregnant 12-year-old daughter of a drug lord.

After the shocking events that rocked her hometown in New Zealand, Detective Griffin is trying to rebuild her life when a girl's body washes up on Bondi Beach.
