Bookworm Bree is usually the most sensible member of the
family, She moved to Erinsborough when her mother
Janelle found work there, as an apprentice hair
Do you get many people coming up to you on the street
to talk about Bree? What do they usually say?
Yeah, I get heaps of people coming up to me asking me if I'm a goth in
real life! Then they ask me how I do school and work. The first question I
am always asked, though is, "Are you on Neighbours?" This happens
whenever I go out. I'm kind of just used to it now. When I first started I
was like, "Ooh, this is weird."
How do you find it on Neighbours with most of
the girls being so tiny and you being a more natural size? Does it worry
you? I think you're a great role model for most of us more natural-size
girls. Thank you!
No, it doesn't worry me at all. It's cool and nice that everyone likes it
so much. Since I turned goth, people have changed and I've had a lot more
punky/goth people come up to me and say, "You look really cool." But some
people come up to me and say, "You look weird." But that's alright.
Do you have any brothers and sisters?
I've got three sisters and three brothers. The oldest is 30 and the
youngest is one. We are close. I used to live in Adelaide, and they still
live there, so every now and again we go over there.
When did you leave Adelaide? Did you like living
I loved living in Adelaide. It was cool. I moved over here when I was
seven, because Dad started getting more acting roles. And he wrestles here
as well. Most of those shows were over here, so that's why we came. He’s
been wrestling for ages. That's how he got into acting actually.
Who are your fave co-stars to work with? Are you
friends with Eliza Taylor-Cotter (who plays Janae)?
Yes, I'm very good friends with Eliza. When I first started we went on a
holiday to Queensland together, which was cool. I get along really well
with Nikki Whelan (who plays Pepper). We are very close. And Marissa, who
played Summer, I got along really well with her. But really, I get along
well with everyone, because everyone is so nice.
Is it hard to play a character that is part of the
Timmins family? Are they anything like your family or any family you know?
They are sort of identical to a family I know, and it's really weird,
because something will happen here, and the exact same thing will have
happened last week at my friend's place.
