Asher Keddie has starred in some of Australia's most popular TV shows over the last decade, and now she's taking her talents to Hollywood.
Speaking with Marie Claire for the July issue, Asher revealed she had landed a key role in the highly anticipated adaptation of Liane Moriarty's Nine Perfect Strangers.
The Aussie star will be working alongside Hollywood heavyweights Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy on the series, with Big Little Lies producer Bruno Papandrea also working on the show behind the scenes.
She told the publication, "Liane Moriarty is one of my all-time favourite authors, and I love Nine Perfect Strangers for its brave dive into the psyche.
"It’s an emotional minefield, with a brilliant dose of humour. Pair that with two extraordinary women I’ve always wanted to work with, Nicole Kidman and Bruna Papandrea, suffice to say the offer was intoxicating. I can’t wait to begin!"
Asher told the mag she's very keen to begin work on the series, "I’ve reached a point where I feel comfortable with who I am as a person, a woman, and a performer. I’m in a privileged position where I’m offered diverse and exciting roles. Next on my bucket list is working overseas - when we’re allowed [to go]."
She added, "When things start moving forward again, it’ll be really exciting."
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Marie Claire opted to have Asher's husband Vincent Fantauzzo photograph the actress at their Melbourne home with Asher doing her own hair and makeup.
Speaking about how the couple has coped in isolation with their children Luca, 10, and Valentino, five, Asher revealed it hasn't changed their lives all that much.
"Being in isolation hasn’t been that different for us because we spend so much time together anyway. We’ve realised what works best for us as a couple is to be together 24/7. We’re a very tight-knit family. There’s not a lot of separation, unless I’m working," she said.
The July issue of Marie Claire is out on June 11.
