Plays Ruby Buckton
Born in Sydney on June 17, Rebecca wanted to act as long as she can remember, but an equal love of music saw her purse both with passion. Rebecca is not new to the screen, having filmed a six month stint on Blue Water High, currently on air. Rebecca also stars in the feature film Newcastle.
Rebecca has taken music and drama classes since she was a little girl, and completed years 11 and 12 on a music scholarship. During this period, she performed with various ensembles and toured around America as part of the school choir. Rebecca was also drama captain in year 12 and studied music at university for six months.
In her spare time, the self taught guitarist and pianist still loves singing and writing music. Rebecca also sews and likes to mix and match new and vintage fashions. Growing up with two older brothers, Rebecca tried all sports including surfing and skating. A supporter of Sydney FC, Rebecca loves playing and watching soccer.
About her character, Rebecca says “Ruby has gone through a lot and had to gain a level of independence I really admire. She is free-spirited and sure of whom she is. I love playing Ruby; she is cheeky and easy-going, but very passionate about her family.”
Rebecca describes herself as similar to Ruby in her love of nature, the bush and the beauty of the Australian landscape.
