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.

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!

Here's a self tape - for something I didn't get.
Do not be afraid to take risks in your work. I spent 10 years pursuing a career before I booked anything. 
You need to have an unwavering belief in your abilities and yourself. Light that fire in your belly and visualize your goals.

But most of all DO NOT BE AFRAID TO FAIL. Go out there and get it!
