Stef Dawson wanted to be an actor since she was a little girl. A self-professed ‘keen student’, Stef studied acting at every turn and opted to study at Screenwise with the Showreel Course.
Equipped with a state-of-the-art showreel and the first-class skillset to back up her acting performances – Stef optimised her Film and TV career opportunities and successfully landed the role of ‘Annie Cresta’ in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2 films.
” I did one audition and that was enough. Apparently, they were blown away, they didn’t need to see any more “
– Stef Dawson, Sydney Morning Herald 28/08/2013
Since The Hunger Games shooting wrapped, Stef’s career has moved at a lightening pace with roles in Creedmoria, Rage of Innocence, The Paper Store, Shadow of the Monarch, Cleverman and now the lead role in Painted Woman.
Stef is on fire and continues to show no sign of slowing down as she cements her name as an acclaimed Australian actress in the international movie industry.
“I hope this just inspires everyone at Screenwise not to give up on their dreams!!! Tell them to hang in there!! I booked a lead in an indie and hunger games in one month!! Life changed forever.”
