Alicia is perhaps best known to audiences as the vivacious and witty Kat on ABC’s hit teen series Dance Academy, which continued with feature film success in 2017’s Dance Academy: The Movie. She also appeared in the 2017 feature We Were Tomorrow.
She currently plays the recurring role of Karlie in Screentime/Channel Ten’s Playing for Keeps and, earlier this year, she played Chloe Lattanzi in Fremantle’s Olivia Newton John: Hopelessly Devoted to You.
First shooting to public attention as one of Ja’mie’s friends in Chris Lilley’s hugely successful Summer Heights High for ABC TV, Alicia went on to film four series of Disney Australia’s As the Bell Rings in a role that showcased her comedic skills beautifully.
Alicia has worked professionally since a very young age, making her feature film debut in The Dead Letter Office. Early TV credits include Halifax f.p, Rove Live, In Melbourne Tonight and a recurring role in Neighbours. She played the recurring role of Leah in the critically acclaimed series Tangle and has also appeared in Rush, Upper Middle Bogan and Trip for Biscuits.
