The Ballarat teen is a big fan of the show and was stoked to find both McLachlan and director Fiona Banks friendly and approachable.

The series is set in Ballarat, with filming of the fifth season currently in progress.

Amy and her mum decided to hand the picture to McLachlan himself, who graciously signed it for them.

This isn’t the first time McLachlan has charmed locals, the actor has a bit of reputation for being a sweetheart and having a chat with locals, heads up ladies.

The Dr Blake Mysteries has aired in Britain on BBC which has helped put Ballarat on the map internationally.
