Jane Clifton is the genuine show-business all-rounder. Actress, singer and, more recently, published crime novelist, Jane is often asked if there is anything she can’t do, to which she simply replies ‘Ballet and making money.’
It’s not unlikely … I fronted the feminist band Stiletto on Countdown, and I was part of the stageshows Mum’s The Word and Menopause – The Musical. I had two top 10 pop singles “Girl on The Wall” and “Taxi Mary” (with Jo Jo Zep). I also had a string of roles in early Aussie TV shows such as Division 4, Homicide, Ryan, Bluey, and even Holiday Island. But I’m best known for my role as Margo in Prisoner.
Actress, singer, waitress, teacher, venue manager, actors’ agent, factory hand, barmaid, and abalone sheller – but that didn’t go so well.
Gibraltar, and my life saw me move around a lot. I am currently finishing a memoir in which I revisit every house I ever lived in — all thirty-two of them.
Football and words.
No one thing — my CV proves that I tend to jump around between things a bit! But that’s what makes my stories interesting. I suppose you could draw a line from my work in Prisoner to my having three crime novels published … but that’s about as far as my connection to crime goes!
Jane Clifton’s visit was wonderful and we had a fantastic turn out. Jane had the entire audience engaged for the full hour and all enjoyed her humour and stories. Would highly recommend
Jane was very approachable and generous in sharing all aspects of her writing & acting career.
