Bendigo was its name-o

I know nothing about home loans. I went for a casting at the end of last year that called for a “young stylish woman” (ahem, yes, thank you). The character is a young mum (aren’t they all) who’s heading off to work, leaving hubby to tend to the child. I took my daughter along too,…

Surprise! I’m on telly again!

Remember a few months ago when I said I’d filmed a new TVC? Well, it’s finally finished. It’s for Kinder Surprise. The campaign’s called “Give some back”. Essentially it’s trying to capture a series of little magic moments when our children (or “kinder”) surprise (or “überraschen”) us. It’s really just taking the brand name at its…

My red-headed stepchild

Not stepchild, really. Fake child. He’s not my child at all. Apart from in this 30-second commercial: I filmed it a few weeks ago. It took two days to shoot.

I’ve got a new hat. Also, I met Grug!

I’ve begun my foray into professional MCing. It’s surprisingly easy, actually. All I have to do is remember two things: 1) people’s names, and 2) not to swear. I’m currently MCing a three-day event at Sydney Exhibition Centre, The Baby and Toddler Show. Seeing as I’m just a little bit pregnant, I’m getting quite a…

Acting headshots

I’m a proper actor now. With real, professional headshots. Nice, huh?  They’re by Luke Stambouliah. I came by him through one of my tutors at NIDA, Erin White, who had recommended Sally Flegg. Sally’s very, very in demand and when I contacted her, she explained that I would have had to wait a couple of…
