Deborra Lee Furness - Without Loss of Enthusiasm

View descriptionShare

Welcome to Season 2 of Not an Overnight Success!

Today we are chatting with Deborra-Lee Furness.

To Gus, Deb is the wife of his best mate. To the world, she’s an amazing actress and wife to one of Hollywood’s superstars Hugh Jackman.

But life wasn’t always glitz and glamour for Deb. Deb grew up with just her mum, as the kid who marched to the beat of her own drum. She took risks and moved to New York to pursue her dreams of becoming an actress; going from audition to audition and eventually found her way up the chain.

She ended up staring in an Australian TV that would change the trajectory of her life because it was when she co starred alongside the man that would later become her husband of 25 years.

In this chat we also speak about Deb’s family and why she is so passionate about children finding forever homes and adoption. She has an energy and a zest for life that’s unrivalled and I think it’s a big part of why Hugh is the man that he is today.
