Where did you study: I have a Bachelor of Commerce but that’s another life now. Acting wise, I’ve studied on the job. On stages and film sets – masterclasses and workshops, nightclasses and anything I can seek out.
Favourite Australian fashion labels: I’m really into labels that are daring and young, like Vanishing Elephant and Ksubi.
What can’t you live without? My music. My iPod is jam packed with everything you can imagine. Right now I’m going through a Lord of the Rings Soundtrack phase, epic builds.
What has been the most rewarding acting job you’ve had to date? I was lucky enough to play my real life Grandmother in a film my mother (NZ film maker Gaylene Preston) made about my grandparents during WWII. That was pretty hard to beat, though Tilly Devine came close.
Favourite Australian fashion labels:Ellery and Romance Was Born. Very different but both incredibly artful in their own way.
What are you wearing right now? A daggy 80s jumper stolen from the costume department of my current job. I have a strange attachment to it even though it looks terrible.
