Jessica Marais was back home at the beginning of May to attend the Logie Awards, but it seems she’ll be spending a lot more time in the States now that she’s scored a role on a new US series! The popular Packed to the Rafters alum will start filming Magic City, a 10-part series on the TV network Starz. It’s a drama set in the 1960s that will present a gritty look at a crime gang that operates out of a Miami hotel, and has already been compared to shows such as Boardwalk Empire and The Sopranos. Among Jessica’s co-stars are Jeffrey Dean Morgan and former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko. The former Rachel Rafter announced she was leaving the Aussie family drama in February to work on building her Hollywood profile.
