Making new friends at school.

Tell me something interesting about yourself, that not many people know.

I have 6 nicknames!… Tilly, Til, Tilda, Maddy, Monkey & Tildy.

Wow so many – what is your favourite?

It’s Monkey

What made you take the leap and have a go at modelling / acting?

Modelling is new to my life, and I’m excited to give it a try.

When you did the recent shoot for The Little Mag – Issue #3 you modelled alongside your sister Jessie. How was that experience?

It was fun, because I got to hang out with my sister all day

When you’re not modelling what do you love to do?

I play keyboard and soccer, girls AFL, cricket, basketball, little athletics and swim. I made the cross country team for my school and went to State twice - in a relay team and cross country.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a vet, so I can help animals.

What is your favourite animal and do you have any pets at home?

Either a monkey or a dog. I have a Cavoodle dog at home and his name is Chewie, after Chewbacca from Star Wars

What is your favourite thing to wear that you will never throw out?
My Camp Herrlich PJ top.

Can you tell us a little bit about what you have been up to lately, in terms of photo shoots or acting?
A couple of months, ago I was played a background part in a TV series called ‘The Preacher’.

What is your favourite thing to do in Summer?

I love going in my swimming pool with my brother and sister.

Do you remember the very first job you did, and how did it make you feel? 

My first job was a Country Road fit model. It was fun and the people were really nice.

Are you with a talent agency, if so who, and how long have you been with them?
I’m with two agencies - Bayside Modelling Agency since the end of prep, and RPR Talent for only a few months. 

If you were to get the coolest modeling or acting job tomorrow, what would it be doing, who for, and why?
It would be for a gigantic ice cream shop!! I’d love to test all the different flavors at Yo MY Goodness. I love ice-cream!!

If you had one wish what would it be?
Click my fingers and my room will be clean!

I think we all wish that!
