Secret's out! (And I'm a week behind with technology as per usual because I was floating around in North American volcanic wilderness… sorrrryyy ??) I'm so, so insanely privileged to have had a chance to step into the "sluttypants" belonging to young Cheryl West. Thank you to the disgustingly talented and wildly wonderful cast and crew behind 'Westside'! That set is so unique and special because of every individual member who contributes beyond the confines of their jobs with such passion and kinship. I also know that much of this energy is radiated from the legendary 'Outrageous Fortune', and I am so grateful to be a part of this family. Thank you for welcoming me into it, and though I will never be the same version of (the ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!! Genuinely obsessed with and so empowered by this woman…) Robyn Malcolm's "Cheryl", I did my best to honour her in the time that I had whilst serving the story during Rita's reign! Hope you enjoy tonight's shenanigans… we promise lots of Lycra, some bristling oestrogen and, most importantly… pie. Of the fish variety. 8:30pm on @threenewzealand
