Kim­ber­ley Cross­man

Sunday Star-Times - Sunday Magazine - - THE GRILL - Words by Emma Page

Kim­ber­ley Cross­man made a fly­ing visit to New Zealand ear­lier this month. The cel­e­brated ac­tor who lives in LA with her boyfriend Josh Edwards and adopted cat Pow­der, had three things on her agenda: shoot­ing a spe­cial episode of hit sketch show Funny Girls, film­ing a pi­lot for Three com­edy Golden Boy and watch­ing The All Blacks play at Eden Park – an an­nual fam­ily event. “I’m so ex­cited.” Cross­man will be fly­ing to Bos­ton shortly to film SMILF sea­son two, an Emmy-nom­i­nated com­edy by Frankie Shaw, who cre­ated the char­ac­ter Kit-Cat specif­i­cally for Cross­man. It is, she says: “Def­i­nitely one of my ca­reer high­lights.” It’s yet to air in New Zealand. She’s cur­rently pitch­ing a show she cre­ated with en­ter­tain­ment com­pany Grandma’s House and is work­ing on a cou­ple of oth­ers with ABC Stu­dios. She’s happy and she’s busy. She likes busy. Act­ing can be a roller­coaster – work, out of work – and she’s no good at twid­dling her thumbs. “That’s when doubt creeps in and you won­der what on Earth you’re do­ing with your life.” She is, she thinks, ad­dicted to the feel­ing be­tween “ac­tion” and “cut” – that mo­ment in act­ing when “any­thing can go wrong” – and the adrenalin it pro­duces. “I think my skill set lies in those mo­ments, just rolling with it what­ever hap­pens. I feel like that’s when I’m my best.”
