Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - /q&a - In­ter­view by NI­CHOLAS FON­SECA

you’ve got big hair, a spray tan and braces. Did you en­joy the make-un­der? To have ev­ery Sun­day night be a spray tan night is not fun [groans]. You have to sleep in it and shower in the morn­ing, plus there was acrylic nail main­te­nance. The process of be­com­ing Krys­tal was a lot more in­tense than one might think. The show has a dark, off­beat hu­mour, which is a hall­mark of a lot of your work. I like satire; I like char­ac­ters that are rough or out there. I grav­i­tate to­wards what I want to see – I want to be a part of that, this seems fun to me. I love how re­ac­tionary Krys­tal is. She’s fiery. It takes a lot of en­ergy, but it’s re­ally fun to play. Of your many films and TV shows, which are you most sur­prised that peo­ple want to dis­cuss? I’m al­ways pleas­antly sur­prised when peo­ple want to talk about [2011’s] Me­lan­cho­lia. That movie is so cool, it’s about de­pres­sion – which is re­ally [as it’s por­trayed]. I’m proud of it. On Be­com­ing A God In Cen­tral

Florida pre­mieres 8.30pm, Thurs­day Novem­ber 21, on SBS.

“I may have been ma­ture some­where in my soul, but I was still play­ing with Bar­bies off set”
