SHORT & SWEET
Were you a hairbrush-microphone-in-front-of-the-mirror kid? Absolutely! And a scarf on my head to pretend it was long hair and flick it like a real pop star. Given your stint on Australian Idol, are you on a Whatsapp group chat with One Direction and Kelly Clarkson? Unfortunately not, but I stay in touch with Guy Sebastian, Shannon Noll, Rob Mills and Jess Mauboy. Maybe we should start one. What’s a song that gets stuck in your head? Adele’s ”Hello” – every time I pick up the phone. You’re the lead in The Bodyguard musical. How are you going with the main tune… And I-E-I will always… …love youuu… It’s one of my favourites and I’m perfecting it for the big finale. At the top of my lungs, of course. How proud was your mum when you got the gig? She was speechless. She knows how much it means to me to play the part of one of my childhood musical icons. The Bodyguard premieres on April 21 at the Sydney Lyric Theatre.
