Lucy is best known to Australian audiences for her portrayal of Lillian Armfield, Australia’s first female cop in the top rating TV series, Underbelly: Razor. She has also appeared on screen in many other TV shows including: Love Child, Tricky Business, Eating Media Lunch and Shortland Street. And on the big screen in numerous short films and a couple of features. But her first love was the stage, where she has played leading roles in many productions including: Shakespeare’s As You Like It; Belvoir Street’s The Sweetest Thing; the runaway hit, The Women and her own multi-character solo show, Salon 71.
In between all this, she has worked extensively as a voiceover artist, voicing TV and radio commercials including: Olay, Clear Shampoo, United Union, Ile de la Reunion, Prime Television, Paper Plus, Arbuckles, Sureslim, Mizone, Kia Cars, Trivial Pursuit, Outward Bound and Superbank.
She has also narrated a couple of documentaries and an extensive campaign for the Merril J Fernando (Dilmah) Foundation in Sri Lanka.
Her love of devising characters onstage has given her the tools to bring to life various animated characters. In fact, Lucy got her first ever acting role playing Bad Jelly the Witch (aged 7) because she had the best cackle at her primary school…a skill she has been honing on various nasty characters since.
On the flipside, her warm, comforting tones also provided the welcoming voice at the end of the phone for the Department of Child, Youth and Family in NZ.
Lucy also loves to travel which has given her a great ear for accents. Combining this with her acting experience has made her very comfortable working in a variety of accents including: Australian, New Zealand, Standard American, various UK accents and French (which she also speaks fluently, having lived there for a few years).
She takes direction well, is incredibly versatile, has a great sense of humour and is always keen to be in the studio.
