Boylan point for Krew
IT’S a far cry from a Kerobokan prison.
Aussie actor Krew Boylan, who plays Schapelle Corby in Nine’s telemovie Schapelle, may have filmed under a veil of secrecy on the Gold Coast, but she actually calls New York City home.
Boylan (pictured) tried dividing her time between Australia and Los Angeles, but found La La Land “a little too self-conscious for me”. The 34-year-old instead made a home with her husband, financier Andrew Baud in The Big Apple.
“I’ve been in and out (of US) for a while. I studied at (NY’s) Strasbourg Theatre Institute years ago and so I’ve got a base there, and my best mate ( Rose Byrne),” Boylan says.
“It’s much more suited to my personality. If you’re interested in life, there is so much to look at in New York City.
“There are city bikes, museums, there’s Central Park and a bunch of us just paid $20 and went and saw Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keyes, John Mayer, Kings Of Leon ... I mean, that’s just a good time in town.”
Channel Nine unleashes the telemovie – filmed in secrecy last year under a working title of Doc McGhee to divert protesters away from the project – tomorrow night.

wore green contact lenses and plenty of fake tan to fill the role of Corby.
Jacinta Stapleton – with the help of some dentures – plays sister Mercedes Corby. The telemovie airs as Corby herself appears nearer to winning her parole bid after being jailed for 20 years in 2005 after being caught smuggling marijuana into
