Bella Heathcote admits that she got starstruck working with Hugh Grant and talks Neighbours

The Australian actress has starred alongside the likes of Hollywood stars Johnny Depp, Lily James and Helena Bonham Carter

But Bella Heathcote has admitted she still gets starstruck when she meets, or works with, A-list celebrities.  

In an interview with Daily Mail Australia at the AACTA Awards earlier this month, the 33-year-old actress explained she was particularly excited to work with Hugh Grant on the 2014 film, The Rewrite.

She explained: ‘I did a job with Hugh Grant and every single day I was like: “that’s Hugh Grant!”‘

‘Like, I really could never get over it, so yeah I still do [get starstruck].’ 

However, the Bloom star revealed that the celebrity she would be most starstruck to meet, is rather unexpected.

‘The person I would be most starstruck if I were ever to meet them, would be [Australian journalist] Leigh Sales,’ she added.   

Bella’s big acting break came in 2009 when she was played Amanda Fowler on Channel 10 soap, Neighbours.

When asked if she would ever consider reprising her role, Bella admitted that it’s not off the cards.

‘I mean possibly, I have never really thought about it, but it was so much fun to do,’ she said. 

‘As far as a role on Neighbours goes, that was a winner, getting to play the absolute b**ch,’ she added with a laugh. 

In 2010, Bella moved to Los Angels after being honoured with the Heath Ledger Scholarship Award for her performance in the Australian war epic Beneath Hill 60.

She has since starred in films Dark Shadows, Fifty Shades Darker and Relic as well as the highly acclaimed TV series’, The Man in the High Castle, and Bloom.
