The Weekend Australian - Review - - Profile -

Big break: Win­ning Tropfest. Ca­reer high­light: Work­ing with my ac­tors and creative team on Chan­don Pic­tures. Worst mo­ment: Af­ter an au­di­tion, my agent rings to say Jane Cam­pion wants to meet per­son­ally. ( I loved The Pi­ano.) Thirty min­utes later my agent rings back to say Cam­pion doesn’t want to meet me, the cast­ing di­rec­tor had read the wrong list. What list was I on? Big­gest in­flu­ence: Nov­els, stage plays and bi­ogra­phies. Any­thing fo­cused on the char­ac­ter’s jour­ney. Favourite ac­tor: Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man. Favourite di­rec­tor: Ge­orge Miller. ( I still can’t be­lieve what he did with Mad Max.) Guilty plea­sure: Surf­ing when­ever, wher­ever, how­ever.
