Kick Gurry is all tangled up

THE tangled web of family relationships and dysfunction becomes even more knotted and strained in the new series of Tangle.

The award-winning pay-TV drama centres on the rather complicated lives of three women - Ally Kovac, played by Justine Clarke, Nat Manning, played by Offspring's Kat Stewart, and Christine Williams, played by Rush's Catherine McClements.

"A lot of Australian family dramas show what the ideal version of an Australian family is. Mum and dad love each other very much, the kids cheat on a test but learn their lesson and everyone hugs at the end," said Kick Gurry, who plays Joe Kovac, Ally's brother-in-law of sorts.

"This show is a version of life that is very close to reality.

"When life breaks, which pieces of that broken life do you choose to hold onto and which pieces do you choose to let go?"

Best known for his roles in Garage Days and the TV series The Alice, Gurry joined the cast of Tangle in series two.

Series three sees Gurry's character Joe move in with Ally, his dead brother Vince's wife and her children Romeo and Gigi into a house by the sea.

Joe, who was absent for many years due to his troubled past, is still trying to find his place in the family.

"He views Ally and her kids and the life around her as the life he didn't get, the life he missed out on," Gurry said.

"He's the dysfunctional brother-in-law who's awkward and weird. He asks to stay and doesn't leave."

His relationship with Ally is complicated, but Joe is enjoying being an uncle to Romeo and Gigi.

Joe's presence is especially important for the brooding Romeo, played by Home and Away's Lincoln Younes, who seems to be lashing out at nearly everyone.

"He recognises in Romeo that he's reaching that fork in the road that Joe reached, and he probably thinks he can protect Romeo from making that bad decision," Gurry said.

"You get this sense through this series that Romeo is in deep water and he can't tread anymore and Joe can get him out of it.

"But is Romeo going to reach out and let this uncle help him?"
