Sharni Vinson was a just a fresh-faced 22-year-old when she landed the role of Cassie Turner on Aussie soap, Home and Away.
After her local success, the actress, dancer and model turned the heat up internationally in the third instalment of the Disney’s Step Up franchise, Step Up 3D, as well as numerous roles on NCIS and CSI.
Now, 35-year-old Sharni is back on our golden shores and is set to judge Channel Seven’s new dance competition, Dance Boss.
“I am beyond excited to be back on Australian soil and surrounded by the contagious spirit of dance,” Sharni said in a statement.
The stunning brunette who is trained in ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, tap and acrobatics, is a perfect fit for the gig and will be joined by two other Aussie dance heavy weights, Adam Garcia from Coyote Ugly and singer Timomatic, as well as host, Dannii Minogue.
Sharni is replacing the glitz and glam of Hollywood for now with fab costumes and insane dance battles. Eventually 12 crews will become one and crowned ‘Dance Boss Australia’.
No word if she’ll make a cameo at the Bay yet, but we can’t wait to see her in this new project!
