When I was a kid, I was lost.

I had a really tough time in school.
I was a big kid who loved drama.

I never got passing grades, I wasn’t popular or a gifted sports player.
Girls were never interested in me.
I suffered from anxiety from a young age.
I was distracted and I wasn’t focused.
But I had a dream, I was lucky - I knew what I wanted to do. And every night I went home and I focused on THAT.

I visualised a future where my dreams became a reality.
When I was 15 I failed my high school drama exams.
When I was 16 I was told I needed to loose weight.
When I was 17 I was told I should go to drama school and train.
When I was 18 I was fired from my job.
When I was in drama school I was told to leave.
When I had a DREAM - I was told it wasn’t achievable.
Well, you know what....
I lost weight, I went to drama school and I never stopped wanting it, I never stopped being curious. I never let the failures get me down.
Because I believed in myself and I never let anyone tell me otherwise.
You can do anything you set your mind to.
So, go out there and get it!

After ten years of pursuing a career in this industry - here’s a story about how it all started... I got a call, on a Friday (the last week before graduating drama school). Directions were to get on a plane the following morning (Saturday) for a test deal in Los Angeles for a film I hadn’t taped for. Casting had seen 1 of the 98 other tapes I had done that year, at home each night after finishing class.

I split the business ticket for two economies and took my mother, who’d helped me the whole way. We set off from our (relatively) small city in Australia, which seemed like a billion light years away.
I tested the next morning (Sunday) in front of the whole studio of executives, casting and the director.

I’d never been to LA. I’d never done a test.

I was scared. Fuelled by passion, but blinded by nerves. Scared about loosing my anonymity if I got the role, scared it’d been so long pursuing it, what if I couldn’t pull it off?
The next morning (Monday), I got the call. A few minutes (and a mini heart attack) later - I was told I HAD THE ROLE.

My mother had spent the better half of a decade telling me - “you never know what’s around the corner”. My mantra had been - “be ready for where preparation meets opportunity”. It was at this moment, I was ready.
Every moment, every trial, every tribulation had happened for a reason and made me who I was. So that I could step in the shoes and the role and have the work ethic and maturity required, to make the most out of it.
I had turned the “corner”. I had prepared. I was ready.
The IMDB photo is just a number. But #1 - 3 weeks in a row - this means something to me. It holds value, it gives me hope. I will not squander the opportunities I have been given.
I would urge each and every one of you to go out there, AND GET IT.

This is a shout out to all the amazing artists over the world, that go un-noticed.
For every (one) working artist. There’s thousands that have lost out on an opportunity.
I say with absolute honesty - in the last 10 years I have met many finer, more talented, harder working artists. People who ooze brilliance - but are never given an opportunity.
Actors, I cower in the presence of. Musicians that make me cry.
Voices that are never heard.
People who perform with a weight of experience and worldly trauma.
People I admire and draw inspiration from every day.

Every time I have had the opportunity to be on a film set, I know what it means to be there. I know how lucky I am.
So, this is for the undiscovered talents of the world. The people that have given up.
The people that thought their abilities would go un-utilised.
Make a stand. Stand up. Believe in yourself and your talents. Know that I believe it too...just because you haven’t been given the opportunity doesn’t mean you don’t deserve it. ...So, GO OUT THERE AND GET IT!
