How and when did first get into performing?

Who were some of your biggest inspirations?
I have so many! I love Meryl Streep (obviously) and I think Jennifer Lawrence is just so amazing! I also love Mia Wozikowska she’s just incredible. I’m a huge fan of Sarah Michelle Gellar as well, she’s just so cool!
What kind of training have you done?
Well I moved to Melbourne in 2012 to attend Howard Fine Acting Studio and I love the coaches they are so passionate. I have also been training at various screen acting and drama schools since I was 10 and they all taught me a lot. I also attended John Curtin College of the Arts which is a gifted and talented school.
What has been your favorite role to play so far and why?
I love all the roles I play; they’re all so different. But my favorite role is actually from a project I’m working on at the moment. I’m playing a prostitute from the 1920s, it’s so awesome!
