Who is your best friend? My beautiful daughter, Aleeia

Can you tell us something that would surprise us about you? I like poetry and baking cakes. (That’s two, LOL.)

WHAT’S THE MOST FUN JOB YOU’VE EVER DONE? I would have to say a trip to the Maldives when I was eighteen. I’d just moved to Milan and it was the first job I was booked on. They flew me there for a week and we shot a lot, but I also had lots of downtime so it was heaven.

Best pick up line you’ve ever heard? To be honest I can’t remember the last time anyone has tried to picked me up. It doesn’t really happen.

What’s your biggest extravagance? A Chanel handbag for Christmas. 

What do you remember about your first ever audition? It was for Home and Away. I was so nervous and beyond excited at the same time. I grew up watching the show so I was thrilled to even have an audition. You can only imagine how overjoyed I was when I landed that role.

WHAT’S YOUR TYPE? You mean type, as in tall dark and handsome?

WHAT FROM YOUR PAST WOULD YOU LIKE TO DELETE FROM THE INTERNET? Where do I start?! LOL…

What would you be doing now if you weren’t acting? I’d be a designer or a teacher. That’s why it’s so great playing Elly Conway on Neighbours. I guess you can say I’m fulfilling a childhood dream playing an English teacher.

CAN YOU TELL US A SECRET? A secret? Then it would no longer be one!

What’s your dream work gig? I have a bit of a dream job working with Myer. I’ve been with them for three years now and loving it more than ever. My favourite part of the job is working alongside [stylist] Marina Didovich to come up with interesting creative race day outfits whenever I judge Myer Fashions On The Field at the Spring or Autumn Carnivals.

WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST WHEN TRAVELLING? My daughter.

What form of media obsesses you? I love reading magazines online. Obviously Instagram as well, as it’s a great creative tool. And now Insta videos. 

What’s been your biggest life lesson? [To prioritise] honesty, loyalty, love and surrounding myself with my family and good people.
