Kelley Abbey is to star as Carmen in the musical Fame which begins its national tour in Sydney on July 29.

TV WEEK: You are choreographing your own moves in Fame . How does that feel?
KELLEY: It's a dream come true! I seem to have choreographed everybody except myself.
TVW: Did you watch Fame when it was on television years ago?
KELLEY: I watched the series only once, but I saw the film six times. In fact, it was a strong, motivating factor in me packing my bags and moving from Brisbane to Sydney to pursue my dream of being an actor.
TVW: You have come a long way since your days as JoJo on E Street . What has been the most rewarding project you've worked on?
KELLEY: I think it would have to be Sweet Charity . It was the most challenging th ing I've ever done.
TVW: You were assistant to the choreographer of Grease and you ended up sharing the lead role with Dannii Minogue and Gina G . What was it like to share the stage with those two ladies?
KELLEY: Dannii and I are good friends. It never posed any problems - if anything, we were a great support for each other.
TVW: You're a singer, dancer, actress and choreographer. What secret talent do you have that we don't know about?
KELLEY: I love to put paint to paper and canvas! Painting is a great escape and a form of relaxation for me.
