Tapsell captioned the beautiful images: “Our very exciting production scheduled for 2021.”
Tapsell is a proud Larrakia and Tiwi woman, known for her amazing work in the movies. High-end wedding, Natural child and Sapphires. Tapsell is also a woman of many talents, in addition to playing in High-end wedding she also co-wrote and produced the critically acclaimed Australian romantic comedy and also hosts a podcast with playwright Nakkiah Lui.
Last year Tapsell also wrote a dissertation, Top End Girl which delves into her life as an Indigenous actress and the challenges she has faced in her career.
“Sharing my story is important… I think it’s true that you don’t aspire to be what you can’t see. I would like this book to show you that you can push yourself to do things you never dreamed of doing, ”Tapsell said of the book.
Tapsell’s husband Colley might also be familiar to you as the other face of the Australian media industry. Collie worked as a comedy writer for the ABC Gruen and Weekly. As the story goes, the two met on Twitter after Tapsell found out about Collie’s profile. (Apparently, there are tangible benefits to being funny online for an audience of critical strangers!)
Tapsell has joked in the past that Colley’s proposal was initially less than impressive. Through an interview with Now to love, the actress shared the story: “We were in Europe before he proposed and we went up to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and I thought he was going to propose but he didn’t.
“He said to me, are we going to have some champagne?” And I was like, oh yeah, I don’t mind! He has this photo of me that he put on social media from that day where I sip my wine with a disappointed look on my face, ”Tapsell said, adding,“ I wasn’t happy! “
“But in some ways his proposal was much softer because it was in a playground where I played with my cousins when I came for school holidays, which has a lot of childhood memories.”
Much like the outpouring of love on social media from family, friends and fans, we wish this growing family the best.
