Heli Simpson

Biography: A year spent in bush surroundings with your teachers and classmates is a great way to think about who you are and where you are going. "Lauriston, the school I attend, has a residential campus Hawqua at Mansfield and I spent last year there, not only doing normal subjects like Maths and Science, but really becoming acclimatized to bush surroundings, with lots of hikes and outdoor projects," Heli says. The course is designed to assist the students in becoming more independent and gives them time to think and discuss broader issues. The outcome was that Heli confirmed acting is an important part of her life and something she wants to continue.

Heli started drama school at six years of age and has grown up loving the industry. She recently appeared in the BBC mini-series Bootleg, played a role in the Australian television drama Blue Heelers, and worked in the Cox/Knight production After the Deluge. Her other television credits include Halifax f.p., Neighbours, and her C.V.

The role of Veronica gives Heli something to have fun with. "Veronica is horrible to everyone and she thinks she is better than everyone. If I were playing a sweet young girl, I think it could get boring but playing someone like this is a really interesting role," she enthuses.

Heli's sporting skills include softball and netball but her real passion is horseriding. "I have been riding for three years and it is my favorite thing. I got my first horse last year; he is a beautiful chestnut thoroughbred gelding called Woody and I love him to bits. I ride him about four times a week and since I got him I have been going to Pony Clubs and competing," Heli tells us. She has had some success with this, being placed in every One-Day Event she has entered.

Heli has also learned singing and did the National Institute of Drama Academy summer course, as well as the ACTivate course at the National Theatre
