What do you love about working with WASO?
They’re an amazing orchestra. I love the
synchronicity and the collectiveness of working with
great musicians that are ultimately driven by great
music. Everybody’s on the same page and wants
it to sound fantastic. It’s just luxurious. They really
come on board for an adventure and they’re a
delightful bunch of people to collaborate with.
You’ve been living in France for the past 15
years but in the Australian public eye since you
were seven. Was it refreshing to start again
in another country?
Yes! It was wonderful to be able to recreate a
whole new career with no preconceived thoughts.
French audiences have only just started becoming
very curious about my past, they’ve scratched
a little further and discovered there’s a history.
But Australian audiences are obviously different
because they grew up with watching me. We’ve all
grown together. That’s a very unique position to be
in, and it’s something I don’t take for granted.
How does it feel to be back on Young Talent
Time – on the other side?
It’s beautiful. The great thing is the full circle
that it’s taken – I’m going back to where the whole
story started. There’s something very symbolic
about it. TV’s done the gamut – we’ve basically
seen everything that we can possibly see – and
the show reverts back to those old fashioned
sensibilities of helping people find their feet, their
voices; and to hopefully be inspired and guided in
the right direction.
What music are you currently listening to?
I could listen to anything from jazz to folk to classics
to rock, I don’t have a particular favourite style
of music. I just listen to anything that emotes;
anything that moves me, I’m happy to listen to.
How do you relax in your down time?
Cooking. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the
kitchen with my mum. And I’ve got my niece and my
son in the kitchen with me at the moment. They’re
both curious about cooking. It gives them a good
relationship with food, which I think is very important.
Cooking is very much a family affair with us.
