Actor and director Rachel Griffiths lives in Melbourne with her husband and three children.
At the outset of her historical journey, Rachel is familiar with her mother’s ancestry, but knows little about her deceased father Edward's lineage.
Rachel believes there is a secret history that hides Aboriginal or South Sea Island ancestry, while further digging in fact reveals a whole other cultural line.
Rachel Griffiths' journey into the past takes her back to the re-emergence of Judaism in 17th century England, where she soon discovers that her forebear was highly successful yet embroiled in the a very dark and murky chapter of history indeed.
Join stars Julia Morris, Peter Garrett, Delta Goodrem, Rachel Griffiths, Mal Meninga, Jane Turner, Shane Jacobson and John Newcombe in Season Eight of Who Do You Think You Are. Starts Tuesday 13th September at 7.30pm (AEST) on SBS.
