The Equity Foundation has named Brisbane-based performer Tatiana E. Silva as the winner of the 2020 Neighbours Internship.
A graduate of the Australian Performing Arts Conservatory, in Queensland, she was selected from more than 150 applicants. The internship entails behind the scenes training and a potential role. She will receive return flights and accommodation for the duration of an internship, and paid at the award rate.
Neighbours casting director Thea McLeod, McLeod Casting, says: “We were absolutely spoilt for choice and are delighted to see such a wide variety of talented actors emerging in the industry. Tatiana shone through with her dynamic and natural performance. She is going to be an amazing asset to this industry and we look forward to watching her journey.”
“I am really looking forward to this new adventure and excited to gain experience for the future. Thank you Equity, Fremantle, Showcast and Media Super, this is such a wonderful opportunity,” Tatiana said.
Media Super CEO Tony Griffin says: “Australians are a talented group of people and more than ever, it’s important to provide opportunities for emerging talent. As the industry’s own super fund we’re proud to support the internship and give Tatiana the opportunity to both work and learn from some very talented people on one of the country’s iconic television productions.”
