Talia has her 10-year-old self, Cricketer Brett Lee and a Weet-Bix commercial, to thank for marking the beginnings of a career in acting and igniting her interest in the industry.
Talia's parents, like the parents of most creatives, were ecstatic to hear their little ray of sunshine wanted nothing more than to pursue a career which obviously promised undeniable financial security, constant positive reinforcement and a plethora of job opportunities. That aside and many years later, it's been full-speed ahead for the now Actor/Script Writer.
Under her belt, Talia has a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Screen from Brisbane’s Griffith University and a Diploma of Screen Acting from Sydney's leading Film and Television School, Screenwise. It was during her time at Screenwise, Talia had the pleasure of working under the direction of renowned creatives including Philip Quast, Denise Roberts and Ben Mathews.
In 2008, Talia was recognised nationally for her award-winning performance with Storm The Stage, supported by celebrated Patrons Hugh Jackman and Jill Perryman, at Perth’s renowned Burswood Theatre. Talia’s acting extends beyond the stage, also including film and television.
Her passion for performance found its way into the classroom when she became an Acting Teacher for the Australian School of Performing Arts, Film and Television (ASPAFTV), under the direction of the school's founding creators Amanda Hardwick and Renata Einhaus. It was during this time Talia wrote and directed 18 original stage productions, a number of which debuted at the renowned Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Brisbane.
Her writing credits also extend to the Dear John Film and Theatre Company’s independent feature-length film PERFECT, IMPERFECT (2017) and the short film SCREAMING SILENCE (2014).
Talia's most recent role is as series regular, Jane Doe, in the multi award-winning web series, KILLA KAFE (2018). The six-part series began its festival circuit in the land of spaghetti and spritz, at Italy's Oniros Film Awards™, winning 'Best Web-Series' and 'Best Choreography'.
Talia has two projects due for release later this year; in its final stages - an exciting new website designed specifically to assist Australia's youngest actors on their performing arts journey, and in it's pre-production stages - a short series written, directed and also starring the actor.
