Another Aussie in LA
Join Ansuya Nathan as she navigates the city of Angels, chatting to some of the shiniest Aussies in L.A., sharing their tales of living, working and playing on this side of the globe.

Henry Nixon would have never struck me as a person who believes in auspicious dates but there are lots of things about Henry I never woulda guessed! Like him feeling like a pretender when he lead a batallion in THE PACIFIC. Or the joy he got outta fooling MAD MEN showrunner Matthew Weiner. We talk about LA being the great leveller, Kerri Anne doing her research on him and how a career in acting is a bit like a shampoo commercial. Oh, and he's one of the few people who can legitimately use the "ol' phone call from Spielberg routine".

Jo Long makes sh*t happen - though she would never descibe it that way. But that's what she did as a producer on Rove LA, Hamish & Andy's Gap Year and The Jenny McCarthy Show. We talk about being a jack of all trades vs. being on the one track career path, catfish noodling with Hamish and Andy, googling Harrison Ford, having on the lot Warner Bros. parking for her Pontiac Sunfire and how weird it is to have an agent. We both agree being around funny people is the BEST!

Susan Prior (Puberty Blues) jumped on The Rover train and found herself in LA via Cannes. And, boy, am I glad! In between tea slurps, we discuss her conscioius decision to focus on TV and film, the beauty and honour of filmmaking, “backing yourself”, working with Guy Pearce, R.Patz and Philip Seymour Hoffman and when to hide the self help books. 'Be yourself, be your best self and work hard' is now my motto!
