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!

Grace Land

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.

Acting up with YaYa

This model turned actress  has taken great strides in her acting career this year, and with what better legs to do it with!!!

In her bag: M&M Sydney bag, Burberry shoes, M.A.C lipstick, Davidoff Cool Water perfume, Nixon headphones & collection of jewellery

What have you been up to? I have just finished filming the Gods of Egypt with the most amazing actors; Geoffrey Rush, Gerard Butler, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Emma Booth – it was such as pleasure.

How did you begin acting? I had studied Drama in high school & I always wanted to act, but I wasn’t until I was asked to audition for the role of Astarte (Goodness of War) in Gods of Egypt that I began to take it seriously.

What fashion labels do you love at the moment? I love Versace. Armani & anything Karl Lagerfeld as well as Australian designers Jayson Brunsdon & ByJohnny.

 

Acting up with Alex Russell

Watch out for Alex Russell! He literally flew in from LA to shoot SMR & then back on a plane to visit family in Rockhampton. We were charmed.

In his bag: Zara jacket, MacBook Pro, Hugo Boss travel bag, Burberry watch, Tiffany & Co. ring, film script, Save the Cat book, The Acid House book & Persol sunglasses

What have you been working on? I just wrapped on a film in LA called Pacific Standard Time – the movie was shot in LA which is rare, so it was a novelty to sleep in my own bed while filming.

How did you begin acting? When was a kid I was a big attention seeker, and I was teased at school so one of my ways of coping was to make people laugh by acting like a ‘nut ball’, so I stated going to theatre & once I came into contact with that feeling I was addicted.

Did you study acting? I started in speech & drama, and then moved to musicals as a kid and then in my second year out of school I went to study at NIDA.

Acting up with Maddison Brown

Actress Maddison Brown begins our week of hot young things; the new arrivals onto the movie scene will debut & deliver some outstanding performances.

What have you been working on? I just finished filming Strangerland with Nicole Kidman & Hugo Weaving, which is an exciting new Australian film by Kim Farrant. I play Nicole Kidman’s daughter.

How did you begin acting? I started acting when I was quite young, in commercials and it has evolved over the years. I am not formally trained, however I am really enjoying the experience of auditioning.

What are you currently up to? I am about to go on holidays to NYC and LA, and then I’m looking forward to being back at home with family in particularly my two dogs, Pebbles and Gilbert.

What fashion labels do you love at the moment? I like Acne, Lover, Dior, Chanel & Valentino (which is my favourite by far!)
