A big hit with the travel clique

Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

SHE’S the face that launched a mil­lion in­ter­net searches and stares down from ev­ery train sta­tion in Lon­don.

Gabrielle Miller, an Aus­tralian per­for­mance artist, has be­come an in­ter­net sen­sa­tion after star­ring in a mas­sive TV and print cam­paign by ho­tel search site Tri­vago.

An ac­tor, dancer and theatre per­former, Miller is now fa­mil­iar to mil­lions of peo­ple with her ads on air across the UK, Australia, Ire­land, New Zealand, the US and South Africa, and has pre­vi­ously been on air in In­dia.

And she landed the gig after film­ing an au­di­tion video on a nud­ist beach in Greece.

While she was clothed, she said the trick was to avoid the “bare bot­toms” in the back­ground.

Miller, who lives in Ber­lin, said she was recog­nised “for the first time last week in Lon- don, which I found hi­lar­i­ous and a bit shocking too”.

She left Australia nearly five years ago to study at a phys­i­cal theatre school in Ber­lin and fell in love with the city, mak­ing it her home.

Miller, born in Coffs Har­bour, said her fam­ily in Australia en­joyed see­ing her on TV.

“I’m off in Europe most of the time do­ing th­ese strange things — in their minds — and then here I am on TV.’’
