When Neighbours stars Olympia Valance and Mavournee Hazel, best known as Ramsay Street’s Paige Smith and Piper Willis, made a whirlwind visit to the UK, WOTV caught up with the girls to talk Bridget Jones, red carpets and dream TV shows!
The girls, best known as Ramsay Street’s Paige Smith and Piper Willis revealed they have many British obsessions and Mavournee described herself as a real life Bridget Jones.
The actress, who is single, explained she’s too busy for romance at the moment but laughed, “I still can’t keep a diary so I’m not Bridget in that respect but if you mean am I a spinster then yes. I’m spinster!”
However there is a certain male Brit she would definitely have time for and that’s actor and comedian Jack Whitehall. Mavournee said, “I would love to meet him. I love, love love him!”
Meanwhile her co-star, Olympia admitted she has developed an obsession with the hit British TV series, Peaky Blinders, starring Cilllian Murphy and Helen McRory.
Speaking about the gangster drama set in 1920s Birmingham she said, “I watched the first episode and just couldn’t stop. I’ve watched all three series now.”
The girls also revealed how they love going to red carpet events and stay fit. Keen runner Mavournee has recently taken up ballet while Olympia prefers more intense gym workouts. She said, “I do F45 which is like circuit training for 45 minutes. It’s like an Australian cult. 45 minutes and you’re done!”
Neighbours is on weekdays, 5.30pm, Channel 5.
