What age did you start your career?
I know it sounds crazy but I was actually 12 when I got my first acting job, on a TV show called Mirror Mirror II.

What are you working on/featuring in right now?
Westside has just started the fourth season on TV 3. And I am developing a couple of TV shows, which is great fun.

What's your fave skincare product?
Dermalogica sunscreens. They are long-lasting, non-greasy and work really well with our without makeup. It's my go-to, whenever we are filming on location.

What hair product would you never be without
Hairspray is a must for me. I have fine hair that is prone to frizz. I also love Olaplex, which is a super nourishing treatment for dry and damaged hair.

What's always in your beauty bag?
In my handbag, the only beauty product you will always find is lip balm (at the moment I'm loving La Mer) and Dermalogica sunscreen. At home, I make sure I always have a good foundation, Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick, which is super quick and easy to use. An eyebrow pencil, mascara, my favourite is MAC Extreme Dimension it's hard to beat. And a killer red lipstick, such as MAC Ruby Woo or NARS Jungle Red.

What fragrance are you wearing right now?
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille. Whenever I wear this I get at least five people asking me what it is, so I think I'm onto a winner.

What fashion item are you obsessed with right now (that you own or want to own)?
This season's Twenty-Seven Names collection, in particular, their woollen coat in soft pink. I borrowed it recently, and have been coveting it ever since I had to give it back.

What's your best beauty tip?
Be sun-smart. Wear a hat, always use sunscreen (even in winter and on overcast days) and don't stay out in the sun too long - your skin will thank you for it.
