I love the smell of a real Christmas tree – also, my mum's Christmas pudding with brandy sauce.
Most days, I still feel like I need to be wearing mascara, eyeliner, have my eyebrows done, have on bronzer – the whole thing! I may as well do it all.
I've never had a cold Christmas, as I always spend it back home in Australia.
My dad likes to recite the story of 'Pablo the Donkey' before dinner to teach us the real meaning of Christmas. Every year, it's the same; every year, we cringe!
I love doing eyes – my signature look is a cat eye. I think it's so feminine, and it reminds me of old Hollywood.
It's funny because when I'm outside Australia, I never get to do my Australian accent in anything. It's always a Danish accent or an English accent or an American accent.
Jimmy Grants is my first stop every time I go home to Australia. They make the best souvlakis you have ever tasted.
Growing up, I was always in my high school musicals and everything, but I kind of stopped doing all that when I finished school and acting became my main priority.
I would like to spend Christmas in different countries all over the world. I love seeing how different cultures celebrate the holidays in their own unique ways.
I have admired David Bromley's work for years. He possesses such a wild and vivid imagination and really sees the beauty in everything.
Growing up, I was in all the musicals and everything… I'd come home from school and bash out a few Whitney Houston songs.
I used to know all the lyrics to all the songs from 'The Phantom of the Opera.'
If I'm going to the gym or the shops to get food, then I don't need to do anything – I'll just put on a pair of sunnies, and that's enough.
I was doing those roles on ABC Family late in the year, and at the same time, I was auditioning for 'Galavant.' But 'Galavant' was quite a wide casting call. I wasn't recommended or anything. It just kind of happened.
Long hair, for me, is actually less maintenance. I went through a phase when I was kid where I wanted a pixie cut. At the time I thought it looked awesome, but I look back and I looked like such a dork! When I have short hair, I feel like I have to blow dry it, or it doesn't sit properly.
My parents would always tell you that I was the crazy princess growing up. I was a drama queen.
Rome is possibly my favorite city in the world. I have such fond memories there – most of them food related.
