Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

FOR­MER Home and Away star has a tip for ev­ery as­pir­ing Hol­ly­wood ac­tor: learn how to make a good cup of cof­fee.

After de­part­ing the Chan­nel 7 soap in 2012, White­head moved to the US. De­spite scor­ing a role on TV’s Shame­less in 2014, he soon hit a work drought and “ran out of money”.

He turned to bar work for sev­eral months to keep the cash flow­ing.

“I was back work­ing for eight bucks an hour and tips,” he said.

“If any ac­tor thinks they are go­ing to ar­rive in LA and just make it hap­pen, they will be sorely mis­taken.

“You’ve got to do what you can to sur­vive.

“And ev­ery ac­tor needs to AS one Bach­e­lor ro­mance kicks off, an­other has qui­etly and ro­man­ti­cally passed a mile­stone.

As and

take their ro­mance pub­lic, last year’s Bach­e­lorette and her beau have cel­e­brated their one-year an­niver­sary.

On their way to Europe for a hol­i­day, El­liott sur­prised Love with a stopover in Sin­ga­pore.

“Lee and I take our an­niver­sary from when our fi­nale was filmed, or as he likes to put it, when I stopped dat­ing his mate,” Love said.

“That was Au­gust 26 last year. On our way to Europe we stopped through Sin­ga­pore and lit­tle did I know Lee had or­gan­ised for us to spend know how to make a good cof­fee. I have had a great run in the States, but it has been bloody hard work and when you do land a gig it makes you very hum­ble.” He landed on his feet with a role in the show Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and is now mor­ph­ing into a game show host with new Chan­nel 7 se­ries The Wall. He heads to Poland to­day to film the se­ries, which will air next year. “I flew back to Mel­bourne to do an au­di­tion a cou­ple of weeks ago and then got the phone call that I am go­ing to be the host,” White­head said. “I am over the moon. “Step­ping into a new genre I am ner­vous but I am su­per ex­cited.” 24 hours there and to stay in the same ho­tel that we filmed the fi­nale at last year.

“It was so sur­real be­ing there ex­actly a year later. It was re­ally beau­ti­ful.”

Back home from Europe, Love is to­day MC-ing spring/ sum­mer fash­ion work­shops at East­land Shop­ping Cen­tre.

“My best ad­vice for race­go­ers is def­i­nitely wear shoes you can stand in all day,” she said.

“And make sure you can’t see your undies. There have been far too many in­ci­dences at races where I have seen girls’ undies and that is an­other big no-no.”

Love is also pre­par­ing for fur­ther ap­pear­ances on Chan­nel 10’s Stu­dio 10 panel show and has a new TV travel ven­ture pend­ing.
