Our guest for this episode is an incredible woman, and someone Jules has known for many years. As one of Australia’s dearly loved funny women, Tania Lacy’s career sounds like a breathless jump from one fortuitous opportunity to another. As a student at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts School of Dance, her hopes of being a classical ballerina were dashed by a cruel injury, but not so long after she was choreographing and dancing with Kylie Minogue – by the way, that’s her in the Locomotion clip.
Molly Meldrum spotted her dancing on Countdown and on a whim, had her open the show. A producer called asking her to audition for a new show. That show was The Factory and it made her a household name.
Then came Countdown Revolution, award-winning short films, stand-up, she’s an actor, written for film and television and has two novels on the shelves. Tania believes her rather unusual career trajectory has given her a unique view of the world and taught her anything is possible. She looks a little like Nana Mouskouri but she’s much funnier!
Tania has recently moved back to Australia from Berlin with her husband and son. When you hear her story, you’ll be inspired!
