After making her television debut on Shortland Street in 2004, Siobhan Marshall won fame as straight-talking sister Pascalle West over six seasons of Outrageous Fortune.

More recently she made a guest appearance on The Almighty Johnsons, and will next join her Outrageous screen sister Antonia Prebble as co-star of The Blue Rose.

In this ScreenTalk, Marshall talks about:

  • Being inspired into acting by seeing Les Miserables
  • Playing her name-sake in Shortland Street
  • Being accused of playing a slut on the show
  • Moving from comic relief to ‘meaty’ drama in Outrageous Fortune
  • Getting room to develop her acting and character on the show
  • Having a serious migraine while taping Sing Like a Superstar
  • Learning how to behave like a man on The Almighty Johnsons
  • Discovering a penchant for bending the truth on Would I Lie to You?
  • Being one of the only actors in the cast of Duncan’s Lady to speak English
  • Playing a cool Kiwi girl in new drama series The Blue Rose
  • Believing acting is the only thing she’s good at
