VICTOR HARBOR - Australian TV and theatre star Hollie Andrew has been scoping out the Fleurieu for her next feature film.
Hollie was in Victor Harbor for a family Christmas with parents Gary and Chris and to scout potential locations in and around Victor Harbor for her film Ebonny.
"While visiting Pa's Fish Cafe for coffee, she loved the ambiance and layout so much that she decided to meet the owner Tim Burgess to discuss the use of Pa's Place as a location for the film," Gary said.
Other sites she has earmarked for possible consideration include Mount Jagged Winery, Victor Harbor High School basketball stadium and boxing area and Victor Harbor Town Hall.
The film will feature Australian actors Libby Friels, Colin Friels (Libby's uncle) and Hollie.
Hollie and Libby will act in and direct the film.
"We are extremely proud of what Hollie
has already achieved and all the hard work is about to pay off in a major way," he said.
Hollie lives in Melbourne and makes several visits to Victor Harbor each year to visit her family and consider other places to film for her projects.
She starred in the 2004 film Somersault alongside Sam Worthington and Abbie Cornish, and was nominated for an AFI as best supporting actress in her role as Bianca.
She has appeared on shows including Home and Away and All Saints and has worked on stage and television in USA and the UK.
Hollie is currently in rehearsals for The Wog Boys stage show, which is touring around the country.
She will also play the role of Roberta Williams in the upcoming Channel 9 series Fat Tony and Co.
