Life experience is the key, and I have had plenty of that. Born in the Czech Republic, I have lived the highs as a daughter of a top TV personality and lived the lows as an asylum seeker in a refugee camp. I have experienced loss, including the loss of my home, family, language, culture, and even my own self. But I have had the joy of discovering them again on the other side of the world—Australia, a place where I truly belong. A place where I became my true self; Zuzi Fort, a professional artist and communicator and a mother.
In my life, I have witnessed prejudice and charity. I have endured heartbreaking failure and savoured the delicious taste of success. As an Anorexia sufferer, I had hit bottom when my own body and mind betrayed me. I have experienced the sweet agony of birth, where I have come close to death after delivering my first daughter.
I had grown wings and touched the stars in a flight of pure ecstasy when I first hugged my daughter to my heart. My children are my life. They are two bright flames that light my path and keep the darkness at bay. They continue to be a source of great joy, never-ending worries and frustration, growing pride, and satisfaction. But above all, they give me a bottomless fountain of laughter and love.
Each day is an adventure, a new lesson, and an experience that moulds and defines me as an artist and as a human being.
I am a mother first and foremost, and my two rays of sunshine are my life, my everything. They are the reason I breathe, and the only two beings who can always put a smile on my face.
I consider myself an artist—an actor, stunt performer, writer, director, as well as a tutor. I have been lucky and privileged enough to be able to work in the media and entertainment industry.
Along the way, I have been fortunate to work alongside many amazing professionals, such as our own David Ritchie, John Noble, Derren Nesbitt, Gosia Dobrowolska, Dasha Blaha, Georgie Parker, as well as Kevin Spacey and Frank Langella in the 2006 Superman movie. They all shared their skill, talent, knowledge, and wisdom with me. I only hope to be able to do the same.
My goal here is to entertain, inspire, amuse, and offer a reprieve from our daily struggles. I aim to give anyone a chance to escape to a different time and place—a chance to cry and to laugh.
