The Secret Daughter star Jessica Mauboy spills on her loves – on and off the screen
Jessica Mauboy’s candid… THE STAR TURNS SHY ABOUT LOCKING LIPS
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.
