Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Joe Hildebrand - with PAULINI

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.
