Lisa Chappell: Gloss baby to gun-toting villain...

Interview – 2009

Lisa Chappell first won fame playing spoilt rich kid Chelsea Redfern in 1980s glamour soap Gloss. In the 90s she moved to Australia and landed a starring role McLeod’s Daughters. Between small screen gigs, Chappell appeared in period romp Desperate Remedies. In 2009 she returned to New Zealand to play the gun-toting Sophie in TV drama The Cult.

In this ScreenTalk, Chappell discusses:

  • Being the ‘baby’ and eating the props on the hit show Gloss
  • Not being recognised at an audition for Shark in the Park
  • Being covered in mud while actor Michael Hurst buried his face in her breasts
  • Modelling the character of Claire in McLeod’s Daughters after the men in her life
  • Her character on The Cult, and the trauma of having to shoot a co-star
