Born: March 20, 1986 in Melbourne, Australia
The person I am every single day is the person that’s growing and getting better. The more people look up to me, the more important it is to be concise with what message I want to leave. That’s where I feel like I’m a role model. Maybe not to everyone, but for a lot of minorities, I am, and I kinda love that – the role model for the underdog.
When I first started in the industry back home in Australia at 18, there was a lot of push and shove as to how I should dress, if I was allowed to cut my hair short, if I had too many tattoos. If I didn’t get a campaign, or if I didn’t get a role, they would always come back to, ‘Well, she dresses like a boy.’
When I booked ‘Orange,’ I thought things were going to change a little bit, and I’d be a little more busy, but obviously I underestimated it. I don’t think anyone knew that my character would be taken to so well.
