Shane Jenek, aka Courtney Act, is being floated as a possible contender to play Carlotta, the famed King’s Cross showgirl in an upcoming mini-series.
The Carlotta project is in development with FremantleMedia Australia.
Jenek first hit Australian screens as Courtney Act in the debut season of Australian Idol, when Dicko dubbed her a sexy star and signed her to BMG Australia.
Courtney has continued to perform ever since, next month moving to the US.
The Daily Telegraph says Carlotta has given her blessing to Jenek ‘of sorts’, but has previously expressed hopes for Jessica Marais to play the part. Carlotta is acting as a Consultant on the project.
FremantleMedia Australia, which also produced The King biopic, are yet to begin casting.
