Boy­lan point for Krew

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Film Pick - WITH DEB­BIE SCHIPP

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.

Boy­lan is one of many stun­ning look-a-likes in the movie. She straight­ened and dyed her blonde locks black and

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

Bali.
