ED’S LET­TER

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents - Sar­rah

Some peo­ple – whether they are in the pub­lic eye or not – are happy to talk your ear off, but put them in front of a cam­era and they sud­denly turn shy. Oth­ers are in their com­fort zone when strik­ing a pose, but clam up once it’s time to chat. Deb­bie Harry would ap­pear to be­long to the lat­ter cat­e­gory. It was in the early hours of a Sun­day morn­ing (Aus­tralian time) late last month when Stel­lar wrapped up our shoot with the iconic singer­song­writer on lo­ca­tion in an apart­ment in Brook­lyn. “Deb­bie was awe­some!” cre­ative di­rec­tor Aleks Beare promptly en­thused, mer­rily re­count­ing the ease with which Harry had turned on the charm for the photo crew. A few min­utes later, I then heard from writer Jor­dan Baker – who also flew over from Aus­tralia for the cover in­ter­view – and had a more som­bre re­port. Turns out the 71-year-old is one of those nat­u­ral born per­form­ers re­luc­tant to talk about her­self, and would pre­fer to steer the con­ver­sa­tion to what is show­ing on TV. “But she had a good sense of hu­mour, and she re­ally doesn’t care what peo­ple think,” says Baker. Traits that Harry might not re­veal in words, but cer­tainly does in pho­tos.
