Do you have to keep to a healthy lifestyle to be in Home and Away – to look good and to be fit for the
early morning starts?
Jodi: Whether I was on Home and Away or not I would still like to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle. It
makes life easier when you feel healthy and you’re exercising. Getting lots of sleep and drinking lots of water is great
Q. When you want to chill out – what’s your favourite past time - do you prefer to be alone –
or to be in a crowd?
Jodi: My favourite past time would definitely be hanging out with my two best friends, my BF and of course
all my family. I love going out to dinner, having BBQs and I could never turn down a day of shopping with the girls!
Q. Are you a Karaoke Queen? Are you the type to go up and sing on a mike – and embarrass your friends?
Jodi: Funny you asking me this question because three weeks ago a group of friends and I went to this Karaoke
bar! It was so hilarious! I was definitely up there, singing my heart away! Ha ha.
Q. Do you have to wear fake tan to always look good, summer and winter on Home and Away.
Jodi: My father is from New Zealand and he is very dark. So it’s in my genes to go quite brown if I
spend any time in the sun; but I do need a bit of help during winter (spray tan).
Q. Does Home and Away have a winter season – do you ever have to put on a jumper or cardie?
Jodi: No, not really. Summer Bay is never cold! Ha ha. Because we’re always dressed in summer clothes,
doing scenes on the beach in winter gets a little chilly.
Q. Do you approve of guys having colour streaks in their hair?Or guys wearing jewellery,
such as necklets and wrist bands?
Jodi: Why not? Every guy has a different style and hair cut. On some guys it looks great and on others it
may not, depending on their personality.
Q. Do you have a cool ring tone on your mobile and what is it?Do you think it’s
a clue to your personality?
Jodi: I hope not!! Mine is that crazy frog one! I know my BF hates it and so does my family and friends! They
all get very embarrassed when it goes off in a quiet shop or simply walking down the street.
Q. Are you into text messaging your friends when the moment grabs you? Have you become a speed writer through
Jodi: Yeah texts are more fun! I’ll call someone if it’s really important, otherwise texting is
Q. Is Robbie (Jason Smith) really as pleasant a guy as he appears – and is there any chemistry really
between him and Tash (Isabel Lucas)?
Jodi: Jason is one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met. He’s great! Of course there is chemistry
between Robbie and Tash but only on screen. They’re great mates off screen too!
Q. Have there been any continuity ‘stuff-ups’ on the set – (such as drinking from a glass
and next thing it’s full again) and have the fans picked up on it?
Jodi: If there have been I’ve never noticed them! On set it’s all very organised so I don’t
think there are ever any.
Q. In the acting world what celeb do you most admire and why?
Jodi: Scarlett Johansson. I love the way she acts and I’ve read some interviews she’s been in
and she just seems really interesting and cool!
Q. Do you like the Summer Bay range of clothes? Do any of Home and Away actors wear Ugg boots when filming?
Jodi: The range is getting better and better. It’s growing and the designers are getting funkier! Heaps
of us wear Uggies! We love ‘em.
Q. When you’re feeling a bit ‘blue’, do you show your feelings or are you able to put on
a brave face when you’re filming?
Jodi: When you’re filming you’re not really thinking about anything but what your storyline is
and what your character is going through.
Q. Are you able to take criticism – or does it cut you up?
Jodi: With this job, there are always people who are going to criticise you or like you. You have to take
the good with the bad.
Q. Do you take good care of your skin and always protect it from the sun?Is everyone
in Home and Away ‘skin cancer aware’?
Jodi: Yeah, I try hard to take care of my skin. Everyone on the show is very aware of the damage the sun can
Q. If you threw a party, who would be 10 people you would invite – friends from the series – or
from your old group of friends and family:
Jodi: Leash, Lany, Bree, Big T, Chris, Ben, Issie, Sharni, Indie, and Mark. And family, but I think I’d
want to invite more! Heh heh.
Q. If you threw a theme party, what would it be?
Jodi: Maybe a 1920s or 1940s party. Going back in time would be a real laugh and lots of fun!
Q. What is a dream you have for yourself in the future?
Jodi: My dream is to just give 120% in whatever it is I may be doing. It’s also to love and care for
all my family and friends. Love and make them happy as well as be happy myself!
