Bright green eyes
The music I love listening to is more of the Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Dido, Jewel Kilcher, Norah Jones, Joss Stone, a bit more of that organic live-instrumentation feel.
Music I can discover a part of myself that I haven't been able to for a long time, and acting is the opposite. I'm in love with both of them and I would never choose one over the other.
Australia is an island surrounded by water. My fondest memories growing up were trips to the beach, walking around the harbour and playing in the beautiful parks.
Singing is and always will be a part of my life.
I always wanted to perform. I remember being 5 years old and telling my parents to sit down as I was going to put on a play for them.
If I ever had to be on an amusement park ride, I probably wouldn't get on one; I'm not a very adventurous person!
I grew up listening to most of my parents' music, like The Beatles and ABBA and all that stuff.
In Australia, there is a very famous show called Home and Away (1988). I was cast on that at 15. The day I started filming, my life changed.
I'm a perfectionist about being on time.
