How did you both get into entertainment? I did music theatre for three years, then moved to Melbourne and started auditioning … I got an audition for the Dorothy [the Dinosaur] show, in , and I've worked with the Wiggles ever since. I studied as a dancer. And then, during school, I had an injury, and then I learnt how to make films … I came back and did full-time dance and then I went to uni to do film again, and then I got the audition for the Dorothy show.
That's when I met Lachy, [who] was already Captain Feathersword on that show, and I was a Fairy, and we started touring together. And then, I was taken to Wiggles to do filming and dancing. Did you watch the Wiggles growing up? Yes, on one of the old regional videos on VHS. They cut [to the audience of the live show] and it's my sister and I dancing.

It has just become our lives. It's kind of weird: It's seven days a week, we meet children everywhere we go, in the shopping centre, on the plane. It's so lovely to meet so many families around the world The mothers used to watch it when they were little and now they're bringing their children. So that generational thing, I think that's why the Wiggles are so special. Did your romance blossom during the Wiggles?
I really fell in love with Lachy in the first moment … But it took him a long time [laughs]! No, I knew we had a connection right from the start In , we basically spent the entire year together, every single day. Why did you originally hide your romance from the rest of the cast? We thought it was a respectful thing to do. There is nothing worse We didn't want people to think we were just doing it for [publicity]. We didn't officially say to anyone, but they knew. When did you decide to announce to the public you were a couple?
It was getting to the point where we were like, "we probably want to share it", though at the time I didn't know that Lachy had planned to propose, so So everyone was like: For us, it felt like quite a while.
