Hollywood beckons for Toowoomba actress

WHILE she might be heading to Hollywood, Charlotte Chimes will never forget her home town of Toowoomba.

The busy actor is due to start filming some exciting projects in the US in the coming months, but details are under wraps.

What's more interesting is the journey leading up to this point.

Charlotte Chimes is a born actor, she even said so from the age of three.

"We have film of my cousin asking me when I was three years old what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said 'I'm an actress'," said the 25-year-old.

"I've always had a flair for the dramatic and I always wanted to be performing. I used to put on plays at home when I was a kid.

"I started acting classes after school in Grade 3."

The former St Ursula's College student moved to Sydney just over four years to ago to pursue an acting career.

To date, her acting credits include key roles in the TV mini-series Schapelle and Catching Milat.

She was also the face of AHM Insurance Co and McDonald's Restaurants last year.

Charlotte has been cast for an upcoming Australian feature film to be shot later this year alongside Rupert Raineri from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, with Stephanie Dawson (The Hunger Games franchise and Cleverman) rumoured to be in discussions to play Charlotte's sister in the film.

Charlotte is still attending acting classes and perfecting her craft.

"I'm always trying to improve myself.

"It's like sport, you can't stay good at something unless you practice, so I'm training.

"The best advice I was ever given was from my manager in America, Becca.

"She said 'you just have to stay sharp and be ready so when the opportunity arises you can put your best foot forward'.

"I'm attached to some projects filming in the US but I can't quite say what they are yet!"

Charlotte is seeking to further her acting career in film and/or television.

"I've always wanted to be in film but at the moment we're in the golden era of television.

"You can be anywhere in the world and watch television on your phone."

Charlotte returns to Toowoomba whenever she can to visit her family who still live in the Garden City.

In fact, she will be in Toowoomba this weekend.
