The Johnsons

DAWN (Fern Sutherland)


FERN SUTHERLAND plays DAWN, Anders’ girl Friday and the backbone (and moral centre) of his PR company.

She is the woman who keeps things moving in the right direction, often despite the best/worst intentions of her employer.

Despite Ty’s marriage to Eva, Dawn is still holding a candle for him – not that she’d let anyone know about it.
