Steven Berendsen from the Dutch production of Wentworth ( cell blok h ) yesterday kindly showed me around their set in Alkmaar and also introduced me to their sound department . They film in a disused real prison . The prison is famous for once being home for Willem Holleeder the man who kidnapped Freddie Heineken . It feels a bit like the old Pentridge ( blue stone college ) . You can read scratched messages in the walls made by prisoners ‘ I will never talk ‘ it’s very spooky . Looking forward to coming home to be with my family .
