Samantha Jade to make acting debut playing Kylie Minogue

Monday, July 08, 2013 3:39 PM | Anonymous

Congratulations to 2012 X Factor winner Samantha Jade - the pop star is set to play Kylie Minogue in Channel 7's biopic "Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS". 

This will be Jade's acting debut. 

"We knew we couldn't look past Samantha Jade when we were casting Kylie," said series producer Kerrie Mainwaring.


"You just need to look at her face and figure to see she's a perfect match - and that she comes from a singing background was just an added bonus in our minds." 

Channel 7 also announced that Georgina Haig will play Paula Yates, Michael Hutchence's girlfriend at the time of his death, and Mallory Jansen will play his ex-girlfriend, Danish model Helena Christensen.
