Ariel is perhaps best known to Australian audiences for her long-running work in Neighbours, on Channel 11.
Hailing from a long line of performers, Ariel is a bona fide triple threat. Her professional stage debut came at only eight years old, playing Florence in Oliver! for IMG, in both Melbourne and Singapore, before playing Young Nala in Disney Theatrical’s The Lion King, for both the Melbourne and Shanghai seasons.
Other notable stage work includes the Young Jacqueline Bouvier for The Production Company’s season of Grey Gardens, opposite Pamela Rabe.
Ariel’s television debut was in the lead role of Lisa in the hugely popular tween series The Saddle Club for Crawford/Protocol Productions. She recorded several songs for accompanying album Best Friends. Other TV credits include Race Relations (ABC), Tangle (Southern Star), Skithouse, Hamish and Andy and Trip for Biscuits.
Ariel is an avid fitness fanatic and personal trainer.
