New Q&A with Abby Damen (Petra)

How is it being back filming Reservoir Hill season 2?
It's great, I think the both the cast and crew are really talented and I admire them all.

What's changed for you personally since the end of season 1?
Well now I'm in my first year of university and I'm just really busy juggling everything around!

 Do you ever get recognised out in public?

Do you think you would be friends with your character in real life?
I'm surprised Petra even has friends, so no.  To be honest, I am really glad she's just a character.

Now that a lot more people know about the show, do your friends ever try to find out from you what's going on?
Not really.  I don't even know what's going on!  My mum keeps pestering me though.

Are there any similarities between you and your character?
Not at all! Even if there were, I don't think I would admit them!

If a movie about your life was made, who would you want to play you?
Carey Mulligan, maybe? But that's because I only just watched Wall Street 2 and I think she's amazing.

Which other TV show would you like to act on?
I don't actually have a preference. As long as it's made up of awesome people.

Who's your current favourite singer/band?
This question is impossible for me to answer, because I have heaps. If I could name a few, they would be Crash Test Dummies, Marina and the Diamonds and The xx. As long as I can sing to it.

Can you tell us a secret from filming on set?
I wish I had one to tell!
