The Wrong Girl: profiles

Christie Whelan Browne…

Christie burst onto the professional stage at 22, playing 'Patty Simcox' in the national production of GREASE: THE ARENA SPECTACULAR, which led to her reprising the role in London's West End.

Thereafter, Christie returned to Australia to star as 'April' in COMPANY at the Theatre Royal — a lauded performance, which won her the 2008 Sydney Critics' Award for Best Newcomer.

The next few years saw Christie star in many major productions including, THE DROWSY CHAPERONE and THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST for Melbourne Theatre Company, THE BOYFRIEND and the title role in SUGAR for The Production Company, ONCE WE LIVED HERE (Bryant and Frank Productions), the lead role of 'Kira' in XANADU: THE MUSICAL, and the title role in Bryant and Franks' sell-out production of BRITNEY SPEARS: THE CABARET.

Additional stage credits include A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, in which she starred opposite Geoffrey Rush for the third time, SHANE WARNE THE MUSICAL, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN and the Australian tour of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW.

Christie's television career has also been buoyant with credits including WONDERLAND and OFFSPRING for Network Ten, Channel 7's WINNERS AND LOSERS, FMC's CONSPIRACY 365 and ABC's MISS FISHER'S MURDER MYSTERIES. Most recently she appeared as 'Olivia Newton-John' in the mini-series PETER ALLEN: NOT THE BOY NEXT DOOR and will next be seen in the big screen comedy SPIN OUT, directed by Tim Ferguson and Marc Gracie.
