Warnbro actress gets big Hollywood break

Cecilia AllenSound Telegraph

Having already made her mark in Hollywood, Warnbro-raised actress Lucy Green is set to star in a new movie called Paralyzed.

Paralyzed, expected to show in the 2018-19 film festival circuit, is about a young woman with a traumatic past named Alex, played by Green, who becomes obsessed with ensuring history does not repeat itself.

Green, a trained dancer, boxer and stage combat artist, said it was going to be one of her most “challenging” roles to date.

“It’s an incredibly unique story, with the script being succinct yet effective in its powerful messages,” she said.

“We’ve all had things happen to us that have completely turned out world upside down. I aim to bare my soul in Alex’s shoes, and allow other people to connect with her and her story.”

Last year, Green created, wrote and starred in a political comedy web-series about the presidential election called Blow Your Own Trumpet — an amusing eight-part series which chronicles an Australian determined to save the world from Donald Trump.

While Green enjoyed being a comedienne, she said she was thrilled to get a chance to widen her horizons.

“I do love comedy, but I also entered into this industry to dig deep into other people’s stories and tell the truth. And sometimes the truth isn’t always wonderful,” she said.

Green attended Frederick Irwin Anglican School in Mandurah and graduated from the prestigious Two Year Professional Conservatory at Stella Adler — Art of Acting Studio in Los Angeles in 2016.

Green discovered her love for acting at five years of age when she played Tinkerbell in Rockingham.

Green continued to participate in various amateur theatre shows in Rockingham, Kwinana and Mandurah as an actor, dancer, and choreographer before setting off to live her Hollywood dream.

Paralyzed is being shot in Hollywood in early 2018 and is set to be released 2018/19.
