Will Jackson

Played by Robbie Magasiva

Time at Wentworth: 6 years
Title: Deputy Governor

Having trained as a social worker, Will knew what he was in for when he moved into corrections, and was determined to make a difference.

A calmer Will returned for Series 2 as he accepted Meg’s killer, Jacs Holt, paid the ultimate price with her own life. However, in Series 3, he learnt that Franky was in fact the one who killed his wife unintentionally.

Determined to move on after Meg’s death, Will found solace with prison nurse Rose Atkins in Series 3. Their blossoming relationship was hijacked when Will was suspected of murdering Harry Smith, and a vigilante group supporting Bea, headed by Kaz Proctor, targeted him.

With Ferguson back inside in Series 5 after the murder of Bea Smith, chaos reigned as drugs were being ploughed into Wentworth. Will set out to find the perpetrator and discovered more than he anticipated.
