Rodger will play the lead role of Dr Richard Harris – one of the two Aussie expert cave divers who helped rescue a Thai soccer team from a flooded cave in 2018.

‘Though I’ve previously done an action-based procedural show [Rush], the physicality of this role is greater than I’ve experienced,’ he told The Daily Telegraph in October.

‘Half the shoot is on a massive sound stage in Bangkok in water tanks and the other half around Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand, shooting in monsoonal rain and mud.’

Rodger revealed how he and his co-stars had been getting diving lessons from a stunt team, including members of the 2018 rescue squad.

‘Not only are most of us learning from scratch, we’re learning the elements of the specialised field of cave diving, which has different skills, gear and rules to keep divers safe,’ he said.

Richard risked his life to save 12 young soccer players trapped in a Thai cave in 2018. 

The children, aged between 11 and 17, and their coach, 25, entered the cave on June 23, 2018, after their team practice, but were trapped when heavy rains flooded the cave system.

All 12 children and their coach were saved during the rescue mission after spending more than two weeks in the cave.
