P: How did you find your way into acting? Onto the GG cast?

I recently won Actress of the Year at IMTA (International Model and Talent Association) which helped launched my career in the states.
P: Are you still modeling/have you been working over New York Fashion Week?

P: What do you miss most about Australia?
SD: Mummy and Daddy, my beautiful friends, Mr Stuzicini, banana bread, mint slice, barbecue shapes... the perfect skim cappuccino. The beach, the great weather... Koko ha ha ha
P: What are the main differences between Australia and America?
SD: America has more people, more opportunities and better junk food. Ummm s'mores, need I say anymore? For an actress it is the center of the universe - best production companies, directors, studios etc...Australia is home, it is beautiful and so calming. I have been given some amazing breaks there and believe the training we have available for actors and our general nature makes us stand out! Everyone loves an Aussie.

P: Can you tell us a little bit about your character – is she like you in any way?
