MY ROOTS

I walked on a stage at 3 years of age and never wanted to get off it. It sounds kind of corny, but it's true. I made my professional acting debut in 1983 in a TV movie with Roger Daltrey and Twiggy,  and have not looked back. Our house where I grew up was filled with music and laughter. My mum, a pianist and my dad, a singer, were steeped in theatre and always encouraged our creativity. People used to refer to us as the Von Brook's becasue we were like the family in Sound of Music, always putting on a show and making costumes. Learning harmonies was as natural to me as riding a bike. I would sing so loud in school assembly that I would be told to "turn it down". Nothing has changed...


I have made appearances in a number of film, television, circus and theatre productions, working with incredible names in the industry. I love performing; there is something so unbelievably gratifying about playing different roles, while putting my own twist on each performance. It's joyous, liberating and cathartic. I particularly love working on new musicals. The excitement and responsibility of creating something new is such a thrill.

I've traveled the globe several times over, doing what I love. My gratitude is immeasurable.
