In March 2010, Charlie Buckton started seeing a counsellor, Michael Patton, over the commitment issues she was facing in her relationship with Angelo Rosetta. She kept these sessions a secret from Angelo, and as a result, he became suspicious of Michael – going so far as to follow Charlie to a session and spy on them from a nearby tree. Miles Copeland also visited Michael at a later date concerning his visions of ‘Rabbit’.
The house used for Michael’s office, for both exterior and interior scenes, is in the northern beaches suburb of Avalon Beach, in an area frequently used for filming purposes. The 2008 home of the Jefferies family also lies on the same road, with the many other houses also situated on the neighbouring streets.
