The rock of the family, River keeps everyone and everything on track.

 Imbi Leili Ling is playing the role of River Murello

Imbi Leili is an extremely passionate and dedicated actress having worked on her craft since the age of 8. Her authentic versatile acting is influenced by her years of study at renowned institutions such as 16th Street, The Film and Television Studio International Melbourne, Queensland University of Technology (BFAA), The Actors Lab, Gas Works Theatre and Perry Studios. She is a library of characters both comedic and dramatic.


The younger sister of Brick, River grew up admiring her big brother from afar, although she never really got to know him.  Both were sent to boarding schools in different countries and were rarely brought home to reunite.  River attended school in Switzerland with the intention she would go to finishing school and marry royalty.  

River was beautiful like her mother, but also turned out to be extremely intelligent (also like her mother).  Unlike Ruby, however, River dreamed of realising her potential - perhaps taking n accounting, or law or international politics.  She finished her schooling two years ahead of her contemporaries, but her desperate desire to connect with her family caused her to follow in the theatrical tradition, although she was drawn more to arts administration than feeling a need to be on the stage itself.  Whilst River never saw herself as a performer, she craved the day when she would be working side by side with her big brother.  River was accepted into Yale and specialised in theatre management.

Newly graduated, River was excited to have the chance to work with the entire family in the 'family business'.  This closeness and interconnections something her soul has cried out for her entire life.  Also, in a family of actors, being the one they look to to keep things going and holding it all together for them has her eager to please.  Also, the chance of being the senior stage manager of her own theatre as this early stage of her career is incredibly irresistible - and a little bit terrifying.  River sees this as a chance to develop her skills in a safe and loving environment.  Yes, in many of the most important ways they are all complete strangers, but they are also family... blood.
