Australian singer-songwriter and actress Dannii Minogue still sizzles at age 42. The attractive judge from the reality TV competition “The X Factor Australia” has recently expressed a desire to return to the long running soap opera “Home and Away”. Now, it should be noted that Minogue was a regular cast member of the show from 1989-1990 which was a generation ago. Only the most diehard fans can probably remember her as the character Emma Jackson. Bear in mind, Minogue left she show when she was 18 or 19 years old. She has changed quite a bit since then as well. As for the series, her character was said to embark on a career as a stewardess.
Minogue is currently in between jobs since departing from X Factor. One “Home and Away” cast member Kate Richie, who played Sally Fletcher for 20 years, jumped on the bandwagon saying she too would like to see Minogue return. For her part, Ritchie had been a regular for many years before departing. In 2013, she returned to reprise her role after a five year hiatus.
In addition to “Home and Away”, Minogue expressed an interest in making a guest appearance on the popular show “Wenthworth”, a prison drama. The series first aired in 2013 and is a reboot of the venerable series “Prisoner” which first began airing in 1976 and aired until 1986. Exactly how would she envision herself on the show? Sans makeup is how. She would expect to be a hard core shank toting con who ain’t no one’s prison thing that rhymes with the word rich. What is at heart is that Minogue still remains an actress at heart. She fondly remembers acting in a drama series and wants to explore that world once more. Perhaps putting out her feelers will open a door or two.
