Alicia is perhaps best known to audiences as the vivacious and witty Kat on ABC3’s hit teen series ‘Dance Academy’, however she first shot to public attention as one of Ja’mie’s friends in Chris Lilley’s hugely successful ‘Summer Heights High’ for ABC TV. She then went on to film four series of Disney Australia’s ‘As the Bell Rings’ in a role which showcased her comedic skills beautifully. Alicia has worked professionally since a very young age, making her feature film debut as a young Miranda Otto in ‘The Dead Letter Office.’ Early TV credits include ‘Halifax f.p’, ‘Rove Live’, ‘In Melbourne Tonight’ and a recurring role in ‘Neighbours’.
Other TV credits include the recurring role of Leah in the critically acclaimed series ‘Tangle’ for Southern Star/Showcase and a lead guest in ‘Rush’ for the Ten Network. Alicia will soon be seen in the feature film ‘We Were Tomorrow’ and in TV series ‘Upper Middle Bogan’ and ‘Trip for Biscuits’, both for the ABC.
