I haven’t seen any negative reaction … It’s smooth until you break up a marriage
“I feel so lucky because I have some incredibly talented friends who are actors and have worked extremely hard to get over here to the US but haven’t been booking jobs.
I’ve signed to the show for three years, so I think I will be here for as long as I love it and for as long as they want me.
Initially, Ivy was going to be American, which I was excited about. Then she was going to be Australian, then English. Then they had another think and went back to her being Australian. Neighbours was very intense, but with Bold the workload varies. Some days it’s from 7.30am to 7pm.
It’s been the easiest transition for me to make because I work with a beautiful group of people.
But there are times it isn’t easy work because we are not robots and you can’t be ‘on’ all day, every day. Some days are much harder than others.
I’m mesmerised by the people here and how quickly they get the job done.
Like anyone, you will have days where you’re not feeling well and you’d rather sit at home in your tracksuit pants.
But you’ve got to go to work, put the dress on, and make yourself feel good.
I’ve already been to Monte Carlo and Paris for the show. I got a bit of time to myself in Monte Carlo, which was incredible. Paris was a bit more intense because we were shooting so much.
Unless I’m blind to it, I haven’t seen any negative reaction to Ivy.
Fans of any long-running show are going to be protective of it.
It’s smooth until you break up a marriage or something like that.
There are some stormy waters ahead for Ivy. I don’t know if you could call it a love triangle … maybe a love square, or a hexagon.
I’m not sure what shape it will end up taking.”
