As one of Australia’s dearly loved funny women, Tania Lacy’s career sounds like a breathless jump from one fortuitous opportunity to another. As a student at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts School of Dance, her hopes of being a classical ballerina were dashed by a cruel injury, but not so long after she was choreographing and dancing with Kylie Minogue – by the way, that’s her in the Locomotion clip. Molly Meldrum spotted her dancing on Countdown and on a whim, had her open the show. A producer called asking her to audition for a new show. That show was The Factory and it made her a household name. Then came Countdown Revolution, award winning short films, stand-up, she’s an actor, written for film and television and has two novels on the shelves. Tania believes her rather unusual career trajectory has given her a unique view of the world and taught her anything is possible.
Tania currently resides in Cairns with her husband and son.
