A fun chat with Celia Pacquola and Luke McGregor kicks off Rosehaven’s third season coverage, and I got to write the Entertainment spread.

Items from WHO June 11, 2018: Alan Cumming, Lucy Sibbick, 'MasterChef'

Alan Cumming called while leaving his home (and his cats) to catch a taxi on the way to a CBS upfront party in New York. If only he knew just how much I knew where he was headed and why! This week also featured chats with Oscar-winning makeup artist Lucy Sibbick, Body Hack 2.0 host Todd Sampson, and one of the favourites in MasterChef, Brendan.


Items from WHO May 28, 2018: Nigella Lawson, Eurovision, Lesley Manville, The Voice

It's Nigella Week on season 10 of MasterChef, and I was able to feature her as the Back Chat opener and in an online story (about how to poach the perfect egg). Mixing up, there is a quick interview with actress Lesley Manville on working with Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread, a look back at the now-concluded-but-already-missed Eurovision, and a personal take on top Voice contestant Sam Perry, a loop artist. 


Items from WHO May 14, 2018: 'Avengers' review, Robert Cray, Ali Oetjen

I got to do a quick review of Avengers: Infinity War this week, which came before editing WHO's pick-up of EW's amazing Marvel Cinematic Universe package for next week's issue. Also, spoke to blues legend Robert Cray and got to set up the upcoming fourth season of The Bachelorette and tease the next episode of MKR. Rarely do I get a chance to do a pop-culture list, but when asked to do an Avengers-themed post, I enjoyed writing about The 10 Most Badass Women of the MCU.


Items in WHO Nov 6, 2017: Ioan Gruffudd, Osher Gunsberg, 'Thor: Ragnarok'

The only time I could speak to Ioan Gruffudd was at 11.30 pm on a Monday night. Well of course I said 'yes'! Here is that chat, along with one with Bachelorette host Osher Gunsberg, and a review of Thor: Ragnarok.


Back Chat in WHO Sep 25, 2017: Danielle Macdonald

With an extraordinary performance in the film Patti Cake$, Australian actress Danielle Macdonald is one to watch. I was glad to meet her and get to know her before her inevitable rise. Also in this Back Chat are items I wrote about Game of Thrones stars in ads, Lady Gaga's Little Mermaid-inspired costumes and three G2G items.


An interview with Luc Besson, WHO Aug 21, 2017

It's not often in life you get to meet someone who made something very important to you, but I got to express to director Luc Besson how much The Big Blue meant to me in high school. He responded in an appreciative and personal way. Love.


Unwrapping The Mummy in Who, June 19 and June 12, 2017 issues

Items in Who, June 5, 2017: Back Chat with Brenton Thwaites, and Ronny Chieng

While I got to interview Brenton Thwaites for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, I also wrote the copy you see on the whole Back Chat spread. In the List, I got to speak to Daily Show correspondent Ronny Chieng, which was a highlight.

Items in Who, May 29, 2017: Delta Goodrem, Isabel Lucas and Kellan Lutz, and Dan Levy

Outside of the Casey Donovan and Eurovision Diary features in the May 29 issue, here are other items I reported. With Isabel and Kellan, I interviewed them in a video set-up — so strange for this print reporter!
