The former co-stars embraced warmly between takes, with Ada clearly overjoyed to see George again.

His trademark wavy blonde tresses were hidden beneath a broad-brimmed hat which he removed for the hug. 

His crew member status was apparently confirmed by the walkie talkie clipped to the belt of his cargo shorts. 

The Top of the Lake actor also wore a long-sleeve, striped shirt for the set visit.
