She's best known for taking out the title of Australian Idol in 2004. But with her TV acting debut Street Smart, Dasey Donovan, 30, tells WHO she has more to offer than her amazing pipes! She also talks her love life and a career overseas.
WHO: Starring in a new TV series is a far cry from your Uber driving days
CASEY: I thought I’d be driving Uber for another two years. But life throws you in weird and wacky directions, and you’ve just got to go with the flow and see what happens.
WHO: Have you always wanted to do acting?
CASEY: It is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time. I have been auditioning for years for different things and I don’t think I ever really fit the part. But this character—she fit me like a glove.
WHO: Are you dating anyone special?
CASEY: Not at the moment. It would be nice to come home and see someone, but I don’t have to answer to anyone and that is really nice.
WHO: Would you ever go overseas to try your luck?
CASEY: Look, I would love to get out of Australia and go and try my hand at music overseas. That is definitely something on the cards when I find a spare moment.
Street Smart airs Sundays at 8pm on Ten
