As a graduate of a performing arts college, acting was always a passion of Valentina Novakovic so landing a role on Neighbours is a dream come true.
Born in Sydney, 19-year-old Valentina has embraced her first TV role as the spirited Natasha Williams, the daughter of Erinsborough’s new school principal.
Following Year 12, Valentina studied architecture at university for a year before moving full-time into acting.
“I’ve always been interested in architecture and I may return to it at a later stage but for the moment I want to really enjoy the experience on Neighbours,” said Valentina. “Dad is an engineer and Mum is an artist so I’m definitely a combination of both.”
Valentina performed in many productions while studying at The McDonald College in Sydney which her older sister, AFI Awarding winning actress Bojana Novakovic also attended. She has also completed several short screen and stage courses at NIDA.
