Holly Valance was interviewed by a UK reporter when she attended the Moonlight event at the Paley Center for Media last Tuesday night. The Nottingham Evening Post published the brief chat. Holly talks about working in Hollywood... and Alex jokes about what goes on at home with Mick's teeth.
Dating a vampire 'sucks', says Holly
Former Neighbours star Holly Valance has joked that dating a vampire "sucks".
The Aussie actress currently lives in LA with boyfriend Alex O'Loughlin - the star of spooky US vampire series Moonlight.
Holly turned out to support her man at a Q&A at the Paley Centre for Television in Beverly Hills, and joked that dating a blood sucker has its ups and downs.
"It sucks, isn't that the worst joke? No, it's fun," she said.
Alex joked: "Holly loves it - I've got teeth at home and we keep some blood in the fridge, all sorts of antics going on behind closed doors! She's great, she's really supportive, she's awesome."
While Alex has been filming, Holly revealed she's been taking things easy.
"At the moment I'm in hiatus, that's what I like to call my lazy times - in between jobs, auditioning. We've been away for Christmas for a few months and it was nice sitting at home on the beach," she said.
And she revealed she has no plans to return to Australia just yet as she's enjoying Tinseltown.
"Most of the time people love Aussies here and they also appreciate if you've done some hard time on a soap opera because it's kind of like a baptism of fire into the industry," she said.
"You work such long hours and it's such a tough gig. When you come here everything seems like you're coming into heaven on set here - in Neighbours we shared like a trailer with like 30 of us, here you get your own."
