Cara Phillips trained in acting at Curtin University, and quickly became an avid participant in the Perth Theatre scene, where she worked with various professional and independent Theatre companies. At the same time Cara trained in singing and music, taking private singing lessons over a ten year period, and also worked as a director, writing and directing about 15 different shows in Perth, one of which toured Internationally. It was this passion for directing which took Cara away from Perth in 2009, firstly to shoot a feature film in China, followed by a second film in India in 2010. (Both are still at the editing stage!) Whilst following her dreams overseas Cara worked professionally as a singer, performing about 300 concerts in countless venues over the last two years. At the start of 2011 Cara decided to return to Perth, and also to acting. The years since her last stage appearances in Perth have brought many new experiences, from volunteering in slums to working in rehabilitation, to meeting international film makers and performing Celine Dion covers on Chinese national TV. Cara is looking forward to bringing some of this experience to acting roles in Australia.
