It’s a proof that when it comes to honing the dramatic craft, everyone has to start somewhere.
Cate Blanchett is perhaps the most recognisable and acclaimed actress in Australia. Whether you’re a fan of fantasy or have a flair for the dramatic, it’s more than likely you’ve found yourself floored by the Oscar-winning actress.
But some vintage Blanchett footage has resurfaced which has us
cringing cheering for the fact that she was not always the ethereal screen siren we've come to know. Once upon a time, she was just a little ol' uni student having a crack at comedy on one of Australia's most loved variety shows, Hey Hey It's Saturday.
Blanchett appeared as the former half of singing folk duo (with a trombone/trumpet player thrown in for good measure) called "Kate and Simon". They performed a song called Weird Love Song, an appropriate title for a track featuring lyrics such as: "If you licked my back too much, I’d make your tongue go dry." Oooookay.
