Boom for TV at your fingertips

Australian actor Tara Rushton, the star of social networking website Bebo's online drama KateModern, will make a cameo appearance in the new series of Forget the Rules, which is the subject of negotiations for international distribution.

Tara Rushton is the actress playing the role of Charlie in the webseries KateModern. Born in Sydney, Australia, Tara wasn't originally an actress, but became a model at age 15, when she went to a Cleo exhibition where a modelling competition was held; she decided to enter and was signed by Vivien's Model Management. Among other things, she was one of the five finalists in the Global Guess campaign, and was named "Miss Photogenic" in the Miss World Australia competition in 2003.
After her successes as a model, Tara moved to London to pursue an acting career, and a mere five weeks later, with no prior acting experience, she was cast as Charlie. She has said in the past that Tara and Charlie are very similar to each other, and that The Creators are incorporating many of her likes and dislikes in Charlie, making the character more realistic and easier to play. An example of this is the choice of music Charlie listens to: "The writers did ask me as a person what music I liked, so Charlie likes INXS, Eskimo Joe, Something For Kate, things like that."
Tara likes the direct connection to the viewers in KateModern, but she's not always sure if people talk to Tara, the actress, or Charlie, the character. She also finds the concept of fan fiction, especially fanvids, "really interesting".
Academically, Tara earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications in 2005.
