Tell us again how you landed the role of Esther ...
It's such a great story! I went for an open audition that was advertised in the Adelaide paper. There were kids my age scattered everywhere around the South Australian Film Corp!! It was very overwhelming. Cathy asked me to stay behind to audition a scene in the script. After that i went for a number of call backs and then one day when my family and i were driving home the phone rang and it was Cathy offering me the role of Esther Blueburger!!! I was soooooo excited!!!!

What was the best part about working on the film?
Working with the duck... he (it) was very cute!! Oh, and the food was pretty yummy to.

What did you learn from doing it?
I grew so much as a person. I think the whole journey was such a learning process there was so much to take in.

Everyone was very supportive and positive about the whole thing. They were such great support to carry along the way!

And now you're working on a play with Cate Blanchett, tell us a bit about that...

What is she like?
Cate is a very gentle person who is very passionate about what she does. She has taken on the directing role with great passion.

If you weren't an actress, what would want to be?
A drama teacher — it's close enough to an actress!

What are you looking forward to the most over the next year?
Finishing yr 11 and hopefully future projects.

What advice do you have for other young actresses?
If anyone is prepared to takes my advice... it would be to follow your dream no matter what it is. Never say never... and above all else, be yourself!!
