You probably wait for months for the release of their latest movies. You probably sing their songs in your car. And you probably spend your days off just watching the TV series they are in (*cough* Vikings *cough*). But you probably don’t realise that these people you love are actually Australian celebrities!
Oh yes, some of your favourite celebrities to follow are as Australian as you and me! We did a little
stalking research to know who these A-list celebs are and were surprised with some of the results. And we’re not keeping the discovery to ourselves! Here, ladies and gentlemen, is a list of some of the most famous Australian celebrities we have today.
1. Mia Wasikowska
Performing with a good American accent, this 25-year old actress actually made her debut performance in Australian medical drama, All Saints, in 2004. She is best known for starring in the show, In Treatment, and the film, Alice in Wonderland.
2. Travis Fimmel
This 35-year old actor is best known for his role as Ragnar Lothbrok in the television series, Vikings, and went to perform in movies like Maggie’s Plan. But did you know he was raised on on a 5500-acre dairy farm in Lockington, Victoria?
3. Emilie De Ravin
De Ravin’s pretty face is hard to miss, and she has appeared in some of our favourite TV series like Lost, Roswell, and NCIS. Born in Victoria, she was homeschooled and had studied ballet since she was 9!
