What is your favourite book and why?My favourite book would have to be Nelson Mandelas 'Long Walk to Freedom' basically because it's an interesting political autobiography! Mandela has led an amazing life and retells this in a humorous and engaging way, especially for such a long book!
What is your favourite film and why?I've got so many favourite films but I recently saw 300 so that comes to mind first. It's pretty unbelievable to think that such an epic movie was filmed in front of a green screen! The actors did an incredible job and were brilliantly cast. It's definitely one of the most visually amazing movies I've seen.
What is your favourite album?Tough question. Right now my favourite album would have to be Black Holes and Revolutions by Muse. It never fails to make me feel good and I'm still coming to terms with just how good Muse are as a band.
What do you like to do most in your spare time?In my spare time I most like to dance, shop and listen to music.
Do you have a favourite sport?My favourite sport is rhythmic gymnastics, those girls cannot be human.
Do you have a favourite motto or saying?'Everything happens for a reason.' Nothing original but it's stood the test of time!
What was the best thing about being a mermaid?The best thing about being a mermaid was being able to swim in the tail and feeling more natural swimming in the tail than without!
What are your plans for the future?My plans for the future are to move back to Sydney and continue acting and dancing, and hopefully to put the two together someday!
