The Cast and Crew
The stars of the new Australian musical/comedy Goddess turned out for the world premiere at Event Cinemas, Bondi Junction in Sydney last night. The red carpet was decked out with a makeshift sink as the film’s lead, Elspeth Dickens (Laura Michelle Kelly), finds fame when she broadcasts her ‘sink songs’ on the Internet through her webcam. British actress Laura, who’s well-known in musical theatre circles, expressed her excitement at Australian audiences finally being able to watch the movie. She said working on Goddess was “so much fun” and that she was sad to be leaving the country to return to LA.
Ronan Keating has his first acting role in the movie and said the most exciting thing for him was “finding someone who believed in me,” crediting director Mark Lamprell and producer Richard Keddie for giving him a chance. Magda Szubanski told media how much hair, makeup and costume helped her get into character as advertising exec Cassandra Wolfe, and YouTube star Natalie Tran, who has a supporting role, said the experience of shooting the film was “really cool” because “usually I do things by myself like a loser, so it was pretty cool to see what it’s like when there are a lot of cameras and a lot of other people.”
