SHORT & SWEET
You’re a stage and TV veteran. Did your parents beg you to have a fall-back career? Oh my god, am I a veteran now? It was only ever acting for me.
Despite my mother’s pleadings, I had no safety net. Were you one of those slightly obnoxious theatre kids at school? I was in a country school so no
theatre, but great space for imagination. Love Child is set in the ’70s – what do you like most about that decade? The music and the women’s movement.
What was the most ’70s thing that ever happened to you? Riding in the back of the car with no seatbelt? Well, that was the decade I was born. The ’70s
really happened around me. When you’re not making television yourself, what is your guiltiest TV pleasure? We’re partial to an episode or two of Tattoo
Nightmares…Human Prey about animals that attack people and it’s fascinating! Love Child airs 8.40pm Tuesdays, on the Nine Network.
