RISING STAR WENDY WILKINS: "LET'S START A MOVEMENT TO SET UP A PLACE FOR DISPLACED PEOPLE IN DESERTED TOWNS ALL OVER THE WORLD"

Authority Magazine & Thrive Global, August 1, 2019

My sister, recently passed and she was passionate about the inhumane treatment of refugees, we had many conversations about this. Traveling through Spain, with a friend a couple of years ago, we came across a beautiful little town that was basically crumbling and almost deserted. I would set up all over the world, in towns like this, a refugee centre, a place for displaced people, where they can live and learn trades, basically create a whole community. Teachers, painters, plumbers, language teachers carpenters, bakers, organic farming. People with these skills would teach these trades to displaced people and help rebuild these towns. They could end up creating a community and bringing deserted towns back to life. Then if, at some stage, it was safe to return to their country they could decide to stay in their new community or bring back a trade that would be useful to help rebuild their respective towns. This would help local unemployment, empower people, relieve housing shortages and treat people with respect.

As a part of my interview series with popular culture stars, I had the pleasure of interviewing Wendy Wilkins. Wendy studied theater at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London working on classical technique and Shakespeare. She guest starred on Australia’s longest running and most beloved series, “Neighbors”, where Margot Robbie was a series regular. After arriving in the United States, Ms. Wilkin’s career took off as she studied with the highly respected Ivana Chubbuck, and Katt Shea appearing in numerous films winning awards in festivals from Ojai to Sundance. She currently is the author of a successful memoir, Sex,Love & Cops and is represented by Aqua Talent Agency and 3G Management

RISING STAR, WENDY WILKINS: “SEX, LOVE & COPS” A MEMOIR

Press Pass LA, July 31, 2018

You may remember we featured Australian actress and Hollywood newcomer, Wendy Wilkins a few years back. We caught back up with Wendy in time for the debut of her memoir, “Sex, Love & Cops” and to chat about her feature film at Dances with Films Festival.

PPLA: Since we last spoke, a lot has happened in your career. You are about to debut a memoir about your time being a cop, prior to pursing real estate and acting. What inspired you to write this and what can readers expect?

 

Yes, I’m really excited! It’s my memoir of my five years as a young cop, called “Sex, love & cops.”.  As well as being an actress, I write and am creating content. I had been jotting down stories as I told them to my friends. If I had a dollar for every surprised reaction I get when people find out I was a cop, I would be able to buy a nice island like Richard Branson’s getaway!   I get lots of questions like “A real cop?” “Did you carry a gun?” “Oh… but in Australia, not much happened there!”

Look out for Wendy appearing as "Belle" in the classic American play "Rocket to the Moon" as part of the professional development play reading series streamed live across America on Saturday, July 27 @ 6:00PST.
Wilkins has been racking up accolades on the American film festival circuit for her leading role in director Errol Sack’s dramatic short, Bull Fighters.
 

Wilkins stars as ‘Ona’, a religious woman desperate to get her husband back to the church and also trying to deal with a violent son returning home from prison. The role has earned her the ‘Lead Actress’ award at the Best L.A. Short festival and a nomination for ‘Best Actress’ at the 2015 Action on Film International Film Festival.
