On the Couch with Kellie Rode

Kellie Rode AAR On the CouchWho is Kellie Rode?
A devoted actress, a doting Mother and a happy Wife. A lucky Woman!

What would you do differently to what you do now?
Nothing. I’d find a way to be creative.

Who inspires you and why?
All working Mums – because the balance of fulfilling your own creative desires and caring for other humans who depend on you is a MAMMOTH task. I also love Juliette Binoche. Her work is always so truthful, raw and utterly fascinating.

What would you do to make a difference in the world?
Help to educate, love and nurture every child in every culture and make them believe they are worth educating, worth respecting, worth being loved – and that everyone else too.

Favourite holiday destination and why?
Oooh, tough one… The Amalfi Coast, Italy; Hawaii, USA; Margaret River, Western Australia; and the Yarra Valley, Victoria – because it’ll always be home.

When friends come to town, what attraction would you take them to, and why?
My husband’s brewery and beer hall – Stomping Ground, Collingwood – because it’s quintessentially Melbourne.

What are you currently reading?
My Come From Away script – and a thousand interior magazines, as we are planning the build of our ‘dream family home’.

What are you currently listening to?
Come From Away harmonies.

Happiness is?
Now. Right now. I have my health, my Family, and my dream job.

What does the future hold for you?
A million more spectacular adventures…
