The Se­cret Daugh­ter star Jes­sica Mauboy spills on her loves – on and off the screen


OK! (Australia) - - Contents -

Aussie sweet­heart Jes­sica Mauboy has the look of love about her – she’s glow­ing! Her nine-year ro­mance with Themeli Ma­grip­ilis is go­ing great guns (see be­low), and she tells OK! that Billie Carter, her char­ac­ter on The Se­cret Daugh­ter, is also about to score some se­ri­ous af­fec­tion. Here, the 28-year-old talks about her awks kiss­ing scene on the show!

Have you found your feet now af­ter two sea­sons of the show? I do feel proud. The first sea­son was a bit of an un­known, but this time I feel a lot more con­fi­dent. We hear that de­spite the clashes, there’s plenty of chem­istry be­tween Billie and Marc [played by James Sweeny]? It’s a slow-burn­ing in­ter­est and we will even­tu­ally see Billie at her most vul­ner­a­ble.

And there’ll be a pash?

[Yes.] It was so awk­ward. I think I made it even weirder be­cause I just didn’t know the form or the process. SSC com­fort­able So how did you be­tween make it you? more No clothes off. [Laughs] It just had to be su­per nat­u­ral. But James made it so easy for me. What W did Themeli have to say? I sat down with him the night be­fore the scene and asked if we could role play. So we did this thing where I was like, ‘Bub just pre­tend you don’t know me…’ [Laughs] It re­ally helped. He didn’t come down to the set for that scene, did he?! He couldn’t! I just couldn’t do that! But the cast do love him, and have taken him un­der their wing.
