I’ve got one foot out the door to summer (USA baby) and one foot in the Southern Hemisphere’s winter. This is how I transition with boxy sweaters, nautical blazers, teeny weeny shorts & some signature denim. Ahoy Sailors!
It’s no wonder this girl’s got talent! I was 1st invited into the colourful world of filmmaker Gracie Otto through actress, Miranda Otto (her half sister) & then straight into Gracie’s home where she lives with her mother & father, the accomplished actor Barry Otto & Sue Hill. A truly inspiring cast surrounds Gracie, and sets the scene for her invaluable inspirations for filmaking.

Gracie has just completed The Last Impresario a new documentary film on the British film & theatre producer Michael ‘Chalky’ White. Gracie’s film is a visual feast of celebrities captured by this OTT playboy, gambler & lavish part goer.

How did you begin acting? As family we were constantly travelling & living in different countries, so we would always be putting on plays & living in our imagination, which is probably where my love of acting started. I have just recently graduated from the Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) so I am looking forward to the next chapter.
What have you got planned next? At the moment I am just auditioning as much as possible!
What is your relationship with fashion? I love vintage & one-off pieces – my wardrobe is filled with various decades, which makes it fun to get dressed, as I may feel slightly 80’s or loose 70’s dresses… it just really depends on my mood.
