X Factor winner Samantha Jade will make her screen debut as Kylie Minogue. In the recent Paper Giants, the Minogue role was played by singer Lucy Holmes whose cabaret show 100% Kylie has been very popular. What’s most interesting is that both telemovies are directed by the same director, Daina Reid, but with different ‘Kylie’s.”
Also cast are Georgina Haig (Fringe, The Elephant Princess) as Paula Yates and Mallory Jansen (Howzat! Kerry Packer’s War) as Helena Christensen.
Previous cast members include Luke Arnold, Hugh Sheridan, Alex Williams, Ido Drent, Andy Ryan, Damon Herriman and Nicholas Masters.
The two-part drama is currently in production in Melbourne.
