Teperson joined the ensemble during its second season, after it was already an established hit. Joining an already established and beloved TV program meant that she would have to prove herself amongst the cast members with which the public already had an affinity. The program is set around the staff who work at the ‘Swift and Shift’ Courier Company in the central business district of Sydney. Episodes have been partly filmed in Australia, India, Thailand and the United States. It centers around the constant management head to head disputes between Courier Company Manager Keith Warne (played by veteran Australian actor Ian Turpie), and corporate head management mogul Amanda Doyle. It’s highly unusual to amend an already successful cast with a new actor but Romy came highly recommended by the series’ producer Joanne Weatherstone. As a seasoned producer with many awards to her credit (Oscar nominee, Logie Award, Australian Comedy Award for most outstanding TV Comedy, and an Australian Writers Guild Award), Weatherstone has been the force behind production such as the feature film Babe, Inja, Baywatch, and others. She professes her validated confidence in Teperson declaring, “Romy’s exceptional professionalism and unique on-screen presence is highly sought after both here in Australia, and internationally. In particular, her unique spin on an exceptionally challenging genre to master- Comedy - truly does set her apart from the rest of a country of actors perhaps not so often exposed to this style. Her instinctive ability to master this is a testament to the unique find we have in this actress.”
Romy’s film roles have been visible to audiences for some time now but this Australian TV comedy role of hers is reaching a global audience with its addition to the Netflix lineup. It’s proof of Teperson’s universal appeal as well as the program’s. For the fans Romy has already gathered, this gives greater visibility to the ease with which this actress performs lighter roles. Paired with Amanda Keller, one of Australia’s iconic comedic voices, was a dream come true for Romy and required her to be on top of her game as well as coming into her own voice as a comedic actress. As the saying goes, iron sharpens iron and Teperson credits this experience with the growth she achieved as a member of this lauded comedy. She reveals, “I suppose I am not afraid of going ‘outside the norm’ for the purpose of getting the funniest material possible. I’m shameless when it comes to going after ‘finding the funny’. I will do whatever it takes to get the biggest laugh; whether it requires physically pushing the limits or playing a character who may not necessarily be the most comfortable or pleasing to play.
