I was always very relaxed about the wedding planning. It was more important that we both enjoyed the day than emphasise how perfect every little detail had to be. Now that you're married, are children on the horizon? I've always wanted to have a big family, even though it's expensive in Singapore. So, yes, there are plans for kids, but they'll have to wait until I finish shooting Reach For The Skies.
Do you think having a family will change things for you, work-wise?

Priorities may change, but I won't stop working. I've spoken to my managers about this too and everyone's very supportive. Anyway, acting is all about portraying all sorts of life experiences and I'm sure that being a wife and mother will help me in my performance.
Why did you turn to acting full time? I didn't think I would be good at it. But after I tried it out, I realised that acting has helped me grow in many ways. I'm always pretending to be a tough girl in front of everyone I know because I don't want them to worry about me.
But acting has allowed me to release some of those pent-up emotions. So I think it'd be good to see how this will continue to help me grow as a person. Why did you have to pretend to be so tough all the time? As a model, you don't bring emotions to work.
You're supposed to look perfect and beautiful all the time, so I cast all my emotions aside, consciously or unconsciously. Now that I've gone into acting, I can see that it's okay not to be the tough girl all the time.

It's okay to break down those walls and show layers of emotions. Your current project, Reach for the Skies, sounds a lot darker than your other long-form sitcom to How are you feeling about that?
It's a credit to the script which is reminiscent of Kevin Smith's 'Clerks', a well known independent film turned cult classic that bares a place in the films slogan "Crocodile Dundee meets Clerks". I think they got it pretty bloody right, taking the practical of 'Crocodile Dundee' and offering monologues laced with out of the blue wisdom and observations of life that made 'Clerk's' the success it is.
Everything from dealing with tele-marketers to the ever expanding restrictions that are being placed on Aussies and their way of life, "Red Tape Australia" as the film often remarks. Now for anyone looking to go see the next 'Inception' or 'Pulp Fiction', this is not a film that dotes itself as having an overcomplicated plot.
It however effectively communicates it's intent with the simplicity of a few mates going on a fishing trip and should be taken as such. Nudge Ron Odgers narrates throughout the film, offering sensible reflections of life and what it means to be not only a Bloke, but Australian.

It truly is an accurate adaption of the true Aussie Bloke in today's modern, technologically red taped times. In essence the film reminds us to look at what's important and appreciate the little things, and how it's good to leave the rest behind once in a while. The film offers incredible visuals of Australia's natural beauty in North Queensland's Gulf Country, delivered in pristine Quality by the RED Camera used in production, which puts it on par with some of the most spectacularly done Hollywood visual effects.
Some may find the pacing slow in places but I think this actually reflects essentially what the film is about, the Aussie way of life, laid back, relaxed, take it in, enjoy the scenery as it were.
