Natasha Arancini is a natural born actor, having had a flair for the dramatic ever since she was yanked from the womb exclaiming ‘to be or not to be.’
Her dreadful sense of direction led her to take a rather expensive detour through a Law/Commerce degree on her way to the world of acting. Since graduating (and getting her bearings), Natasha moved from the tiny town of Perth, to the Australia’s east coast (subsequently to London) to pursue acting full time. She has trained extensively across the USA and Australia (Howard Fine, Beverly Hills Playhouse, The Second City, etc) and continues to take class whenever they are available. A ballet teacher once likened her quest to absorb knowledge to a sponge.
She has appeared in numerous short films and web series, most recently in Empire Studios' 'Lizard Man,' and Bamyasi Media’s ‘Monkey Man,’ but equally loves taking to the stage in a well crafted play. Her work also includes commercials for brands such as Qantas and Bank of Melbourne. Since moving to Sydney, she also endeavoured to learn the ins and outs of the behind camera roles with the aim of not only improving her screen craft, but producing her own work. She can now often be found behind the camera, operating sound, lighting scenes, writing scripts, in the editing lair or sourcing costumes. And to top it all off she decided becoming a licensed drone pilot would be good fun as well.
She is sassy, energetic, often gets labelled ‘assertive’ (whether that is good or bad is yet to be determined), and has a signature red mane which can inflate to sizes well beyond what Hagrid could have ever dreamed. She loves to learn and get involved, helping out on a project in whatever way she can.
P.S. I really hate bio's, so hopefully that was a bit of fun to read!
