Tammin heaven

What was your first kiss like?

First kiss I think I was 14 and it was with a guy who I did a stage show with. We did a musical together and we went out for about a week! [ laughs ]. The kiss was at my house. We watched a video together and he kissed me. It wasn't a romantic video. It was Scream 2 ... no, Scream!

What do you eat for breakfast?

Just normal, boring, ol' cereal.

Who's the hottest guy you work with?

I would say there are like five ... I would say all of them! They're all so gorgeous. I'm so lucky. I couldn't pick. Even when I was younger. I would have had at least five of them up there on my wall. I think Home and Away pick boys so well.

Do fans ever ask you to marry them?

Yes, a couple. It's so beautiful to be asked especially by a little boy or I once got asked by someone who had brain damage - it's just so flattering that people actually think that's something they'd want to do. I just write back and say thank you so much for your letter. You don't want to say yes or no because it doesn't achieve anything.

How long have you worn glasses for?

Since I was in year 8, when I was 13. I'm short-sighted so I can't see long distance. I wear contacts on the show so I don't need glasses on set!

How did you get the part of Dani?

I auditioned. First, you have to get an agent and I got an agent from when I was quite young. Then, I got into an agency called Chadwicks which is mainly modelling and I kind of just did it 'cos I thought I might get a bit of extra money while I was still at school. So then the audition came through. So, it's just a matter of getting an agency and making sure that you do acting courses and study acting.

What was the first word you said?

" Dadda " because my mum wanted my dad to go look after me when I was calling for him. So I didn't say " Mum ", I said " Dadda " and she could say " Oh, honey, she's calling you. Not me. I can still sleep ".

Do you think Will should have stayed with Dani or gone off with Gypsy?

I reckon he should have done what his heart felt. So if he still loved Dani, I reckon he should have stayed with Dani and worked something out 'cos you shouldn't waste your life with somebody that you don't love. But if you did feel more for her than Dani, he shouldn't gone back with her.

If you were a boy, what would you want your name to be?

Jordan, I like the name Jordan.

What did you do with your logie?

My mum's got it in the safe! [ laughs ] She looks after it. I don't even know where it is.

Have you got any tattoos?

No ... but I would get one! I want to get a tiny eternity symbol just on my hip bone so that no-one can really see it. It's going to be black. I've actually gone to get it done but they didn't have it so I have to go back. I might get it in the next couple of months.

What's the most embarrassing thing you've done on set?

In one scene I was supposed to be holding my elbow going " Ow! Ow! Ow! " and walking backwards because I'd hurt myself. As I was walking backwards I fell over the cactus and I was falling backwards and I sat on the cactus and I was going, " OW! OW! OW! " and everybody thought it was just the most hilarious thing because I was supposed to be in pain and I ended up in pain at the end of the scene. It was a very embarrassing moment ... but at least I have it when people ask me about my most embarrassing moment!

Will you do more singing on the show?

No. No. Over that.

What music are you into?

I love Craig David's stuff. I like Pink's new album. I like one-off songs. Normally you don't find an album that's all good. I like things like " Cafe Del Mar ". I love Michael Jackson. Christina Aguilera has an amazing voice.

With you upcoming musical debut, what style of music is it going to be?

Natalie-Imbruglia-style-of-music. Something a bit more organic-y with guitars and things that you can really put some feeling into. Yeah, my style is best compared to Natalie.

I heard a rumour that you were supposed to do Bardot's song " I Need Somebody " but they stole it from you. Is that true? Do you like the song?

I was going to do the song but then I didn't think it was the right song to do and so they used it. I like the song. It just wasn't right for me. It wasn't right for somebody who was coming out as a first single. It was fantastic for them 'cos they've had a lot of hit singles so it was OK for them but not for me.

What do you think of the rush of soapie stars releasing pop singles?

I think it's fantastic. I mean, if you can do it, then go for it! If you can get the opportunity because there a lot of people that don't get the opportunity and we do. So I think it's a fantastic way to go. I just think you have to make sure that's the way you want to go.

How long until we hear your music? You're killing us!!

I'm recording now and then, but I know that I want to finish Home and Away first and I'll probably record in London and then come back here. So it might be a wait ... but it will be a good wait! I think it will be worth it.

If you could be male for a day, what would be the first thing you would do?

Ummm ... probably sit in a group of male friends and hear what they had to say about girls. See how they focus. What they think.

Would you consider going out with Daniel Collopy in real life?

We'll wait and see! [ laughs ] We've got a thing going, him and me, so that every time people ask us we go, " Hmm, maybe! "

Was it your idea to model for Bonds underwear?

No, it wasn't my idea. They came to me and asked if I'd be the model for Bonds underwear. It was a really good shoot. It was really professional and styled well and it was just a lot of fun. I'm really glad that they chose me. It's like an honour for me. I'm not sure if I'll be doing more, maybe. It just depends on how these go. Some people who don't know about Home and Away, come up and say, " You're that girl from Bonds ". I go, " Ummm ... yeah!" Hopefully I'll keep on doing some more stuff.

Are you going to be in any movies?

Movies are my passion. It's something I want to end up doing but music, I love too. So if I can do it, then I will. But at the end of the day, if a movie role came up, I think that's something I'd that be more inclined to do. I don't want to be classed as the one type of character - I'd love to play the psychopath or the detective. Just because I'm young I don't want to be the cheerleader. I have to wait until Home and Away is finished for that, so I was lucky with Bonds. I have always said that I would give some money to charity if I got things like that, so I gave some to charity and Home and Away passed that because it was charitable.

Why did your parents call you Tammin?

My mum wanted a cross between a " Tammy " and a " Tamsin" so when she was something like 12-years-old she said she was going to call a girl Tammin. It just came into her head. It doesn't mean anything. So I'm the only one ... but there might be little babies now!

What's your idea of the perfect date?

Can I do anything in the entire world? He could take me to one of the islands in the Whitsundays, 'cos it takes about an hour to get there and go for a beautiful lunch on the water. Then go to Whitehaven Beach and just lay there all day. Just to be taken there for the day would be so romantic 'cos it would be a one-off thing! Well you did say it could be anything in the whole world!

Finally, where do you think you'll be in ten years?

Hopefully doing what I love to do. So doing movies with music on the sideline. Just getting meaty parts and roles that I just want to give everything to ... and being happy. I want to be happy. Money doesn't mean anything to me so as long as I'm happy and I'm doing what I love to do and I have my family close by me, then that's all I need.
