Her Home and Away character, Kirsty Sutherland came to the Bay with her family who have moved from the city. Her parents Rhys (Michael Beckley) and Shelley (Paula Forrest) want their children to have a better lifestyle and decide to move to Summer Bay.
Kirsty has two sisters, one a twin- Jade (Kate Garven) and the older sister Dani (Tammin Sursok). Like all kids, this has been a difficult time for Kirsty and her sisters, having to leave all their friends behind and move to a place where everybody knows your business and the pace is that little bit slower.

"I think Kirsty is feisty and I like that in her. I think she is a bit more immature than I am- it is nice to play someone different- she is very cool", she says of her character.
And what does Christie think about joining the show and having an instant on screen family?

"I love working on Home and Away. It is like a little family. It has been so much easier now that I know Tammin and Kate so well- it feels like we have known each other for so long- we have become really close", she says.

Christie had to travel from the Central Coast each time she had to audition for the part.

"I was so excited when I heard I got the part. It was a long audition process by it has paid off. Mum was the one that told me I got the part and I immediately rang my best friend to tell her the news."

Christie now studies by correspondence and enjoys subjects such as English, performing arts- music and of course drama.
In the future, Christie would love to be a director. When she's not acting up a storm, she's behind the scenes watching the show's different directors and checking out different shots.

Christie also plays the flute, which she started when she was 8 years old.

In her spare time, Christie likes listening to music, hanging out with her boyfriend and going to the beach and the movies. Oh, and of course relaxing when she finds the time!

She would also like to try to learn how to ice skate.

Her favourite actors are Mel Gibson, Patrick Swayze, Heath Ledger and Paul Walker. Christie says Drew Barrymore and Julia Stiles are her favourite actresses. Her favourite bands are Next, Destiny's Child and singers Usher, 2Pac, Nelly and KC and Jo Jo.
