Name: Anna
Age: 20
Occupation: Singer

You’re not the first person in your family to be in NZPC are you?
No. My brother Adam drives the Redline Performance VR-4 that was featured a few months back.

We hear your boyfriend has been in too!
Who? What? I don’t have a boyfriend. What did you hear?

So being surounded by people like that you must have a mean car yourself?
No, I’ve just got a Toyota RAV4. Go the RAV!

If money wasn’t an issue, what would you be driving?
I’d like a Turbo Altezza, or Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. Yeah, an Evo VII would be nice.

So, it’s speed over style then?
Although speed is good, I’m going to go with style.

What’s your favourite car in the scene at the moment?
I love both drift and drag racing. Drifting’s got skill, but as my brother does drag racing I’m a fan of that too. My favourite cars on the import scene are his VR-4 and the HKS/Redline Performance/Dodsons S15 drifter.

What’s the one item you can’t live without?
My cellphone. I have to have it on me at all times.

If you had to leave town with just three items, what would they be?
My toothbrush, my handbag and all its contents, and definitely my cash card!

Where would we have seen you before?
TV maybe? I was on Shortland Street as a featured guest. I was singing on it, but that was a long time ago. I’ve also been in a movie called Kids World. It was in theatres in America as well as New Zealand. I was playing one of the lead roles, so that was really fun.

Quite the actress, huh! How did you get into modelling?
I don’t know. I haven’t actually been modelling for that long. It just came about through the promo work I’ve done for Redline Performance recently, I guess.

Besides singing and acting, what other talents do you have?
I did motocross racing for four years and I’m recording a solo album at the moment. It’s country pop.

How far do you plan to take your singing career?
It depends on how far the studio wants to take it — as far as we possibly can though.

Do you write your own lyrics?
No, they write the music for me! in fact, they do every thing for me. I just have to hold the microphone! and sing of course!

When are you hoping to release it?
We’re aiming for the beginning of next year at the latest.

Will that be sold locally?
It will be on sale here. But the biggest target is the USA, since country pop isn’t too big here.
