The struggle to forge a career in the entertainment industry is one that every creative knows all too well. It requires a strong mindset and constant hustle; setting meetings, attending auditions and pushing as hard as one can to get a moment in the spotlight. For most, this day-to-day effort in reaching for the stars can take its toll, and even be enough to send some running for the hills (and I don’t mean Hollywood). However, for three determined and vivacious men, it is this fight for one’s dream that has fuelled a five part comedy-drama series – Made For This.

The series follows Chase Lombardi, a struggling actor, determined to turn his dream into a reality. Together with his “entourage”; mischievous and quirky best friend, Cole Carlyle, and connected and competent moral compass, Lee Rhodes; the trio navigate the entertainment industry, experiencing its ups and never ending downs, refusing to let the stars in their eyes waver and always remembering that they were Made For This!

Rhianne Evelyn-Ross in “Camille”

Rhianne Evelyn-Ross in "Camille"

Matthew Grego as “The Count” and Rhianne Evelyn-Ross as “Clemence”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“This enticing story of the famous courtesan is a delicious mix of sex, death and chocolate. Together the dramatic and comedic twists and turns of plot pose the question: Who is responsible for the destruction? The madam who exploits her, the marquis who breaks her heart, the man who demands too much of her or does Marie herself kill all hope when she makes her choice to be Marguerite the lady of the Camellias?”

Rhianne plays Clemence, a young, naive Courtesan. A colleague and friend of Marguerite. Clemence is the light-hearted comic relief in the play and is a joy to create.

Group picture the Courtesans and Madame. L-R Rhianne Evelyn-Ross as “Clemence”, Imogen French as “Prudence”, Gemma Knight as “Sophie” and Paloma Alma as “Marguerite”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Opens at Star of the Sea Theatre, Manly 11th July 2015 and will be on Friday, Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons for 3 weeks.
