Tell us a little more about your housewife, Christa:
She’s quite a complex character. Cool, calm and collected on the outside but a wildness that needs to come out in the bedroom. She’s also a little vulnerable in unexpected ways.
What inspired Christa’s story:
The brief from Escape and a need to make Christa more than she seems. I wanted to play with some assumptions that people make about rich society women.
What was your biggest challenge in writing Christa’s story?
Choreography. A threesome can be quite challenging in that way. Also, I’ve never written something that was set up with connected characters. That was interesting!
Why will we love Christa?
She feels deeply not just about those she loves but about those who suffer. And she goes after what she wants no matter how unconventional it may seem.
The Housewives of Sydney series promises that we’ll “find out what goes on behind the doors of the most exclusive addresses in the country”. What was the appeal of joining this series? Similarly, what has been the biggest challenge?
The appeal was working with an amazing group of women and brainstorming ideas about character traits, houses, clothes etc. The biggest challenge was allowing myself to take a risk and see what emerged. It was a great experience!
Meet the Housewives of Sydney. They are wealthy, elegant, poised, and constantly in the public eye. But what goes on behind closed doors, in the private homes and parties where the cameras and paparazzi aren’t welcome? Delve into the most personal details of their relationships, their friendships and their lives. The only question is: can you handle the heat?
In business, as in pleasure, Christa has two rules: ask for what you want, and be prepared to get a bit creative. She and her husband, Marc, are infamous for their charitable soirees and the obscene amount of money that they raise for good causes around the world.
The secret to their success has always been well-kept, but one chance encounter with Christa is going to lead one lucky CEO to find out just how this unorthodox pair make friends and influence people.
