The days are long
“That’s something people kind of forget. Sometimes we do 16-hour days or we drive out to these crazy locations that are an hour away. As fun and as cool as it is, people forget just how much work goes into shooting television shows. It’s not something people talk about very much.”

She’s open to doing another television show after The Originals
“I’m going back to do the fourth season of The Originals in July, I’ll be doing that for another season and then I’m not sure exactly how many more seasons it’ll go for. I love working in television and I’m excited to have the opportunity to explore other characters. I’d love to do another TV show in the future as well.”

Why she loves working in television
“It is such a great medium and it’s really nice to have like, a stable job! You can do what you love every day and not do it just for three months. You work for extended periods of time and you create a family with the people you work with. It’s really nice.”

But if it wasn’t an acting career, she’d look towards the fashion and media industry
“If I wasn’t acting I would want to work for a magazine in a more creative direction. I loved that kind of stuff at school.”


My friend and pen pal of nearly 6 years @tarawinkler gave an incredible @ted talk in Sydney, Australia about the rise of ‘volunteer tourism’ in developing countries.

I myself fell into the trap when I was 18, thinking I was doing the right thing by volunteering in an orphanage in Cambodia, but I have since learned through Tara and my own research that in fact I was only contributing to the problem. I strongly urge you to watch her talk, and educate yourself on what you can do to help families and orphans in need that doesn’t involve supporting the institutionalizing of children.

We Need to End the Era of Orphanages | Tara Winkler

Tara Winkler speaks out against the spread of orphanages in developing countries, caused by the good intentions of foreign donors, and of harm that comes to children when they are separated from family and left to grow up in institutions.

Tara is the Managing Director of the Cambodian Children’s Trust (CCT) which she established with Jedtha Pon in 2007 in order to rescue fourteen children from a corrupt and abusive orphanage. She has led CCT through a number of significant organisational changes, including the closure of the initial CCT orphanage in favour of a family-based care model to empower Cambodian families to escape poverty, assist institutionalised children return to families, and help orphanages transform to a family-based care model. Her first book, ‘How (NOT) to Start an Orphanage – by a woman who did’ was published in April 2016.


Just an announcement that I’ve added some new icons to the archive. Check them out!

Director Jim Gillespie‘s upcoming Action, Thriller “Billionaire Ransom” attained a U.S. and Canadian distribution. Gravitas Ventures secured the deal from Radiant Films International. The contract centers on North American as well as Latin American markets. Alexander Ignon penned the script to this upcoming film.

The synopsis to “Billionaire Ransom” reads as follows:

After a car accident that is the last straw for both their families, Kyle (Sumpter) and Amy (Tonkin) find themselves grouped with other spoiled, out-of-control sons and daughters of international billionaires sent by their frustrated parents to a tough-love wilderness school on a remote island off the coast of Scotland. This is a last opportunity for the over-privileged young adults to grow up, abandon their reckless ways and take responsibility for their own lives — or risk being disinherited. Suddenly, a group of mercenaries invade the island, kill the teachers and guards, and hold the privileged lot hostage for the largest ransom in history, a BILLION DOLLARS. When they learn they are to be killed even if the ransom is paid, their wilderness survival training is their only hope of outwitting the mercenaries and staying alive.

Based on the synopsis, “Billionaire Ransom” offers elements of a Survival Horror concept. A group of untrained youngsters must do whatever possible within a cat and mouse game of survival. It will be interesting to see another interpretation to this thrilling concept. “Billionaire Ransom” stars Jeremy Sumpter, Sebastian Koch, Phoebe Tonkin, Dominic Sherwood, and Ed Westwick

At press time, a movie poster and trailer were not provided. “Billionaire Ransom” has a scheduled limited release in cinemas. The film will also be available via video on demand. Both distribution platforms will occur on the 19th of August 2016 in the U.S. and Canada.


Just wanted to announce that we’ve officially reached our 100th video in our video vault! There you will find trailers from Phoebe’s movies, behind the scenes from her various projects, interviews, commercials, and more! Be sure to bookmark the site because I update it quite often!
