SHORT & SWEET

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Joe Hildebrand - with HE­LEN DALLIMORE

You grew up in Ox­ford, UK, and both your par­ents are pro­fes­sors. That’s fairly in­tim­i­dat­ing.

I’m the only mem­ber of my fam­ily with­out at least a doc­tor­ate, in­clud­ing my six-year-old son. It’s re­ally em­bar­rass­ing.

What was the first act­ing gig you got af­ter NIDA?

Tour­ing nurs­ing homes with a French farce. That’s when I knew I had made it.

You’ve done a lot of West End work in your time. Are show tunes your go-to for singing in the shower?

Usu­ally it’s some kind of weird vo­cal warm-up. If you lived nearby, you might think an ele­phant was trapped in my bath­room.

Com­plete this sen­tence: I still know all the lyrics to…

“Bo­hemian Rhap­sody”. And so should you.

When not film­ing The Habibs, we’ll find you…

play­ing Uno with my son. He spreads them all out on the ta­ble. I pre­tend I can’t see them… un­less I need a win. Some­times Mummy’s had a bad day. Here Come The Habibs, sea­son two, airs 8pm, June 5, on the Nine Net­work.
