Fans shouldn’t anticipate Emily Weir’s return to reality television any time soon, despite the fact that she placed second on this year’s Dancing With The Stars season.
The Home and Away actress tells Yahoo Lifestyle that despite her strenuous preparation for the dancing contest, she wouldn’t participate in SAS Australia, Channel Seven’s other physically taxing celebrity-based reality program.
“I just think for me, my shtick is more about performance,” she says. In essence, I want to pursue a career as an actor, specifically a dramatic, humorous, all-around actor. I’m unable to give up on that dream just yet.
And I believe that Dancing, that encounter, and everything that program stands for can only improve my acting abilities.
She adds that she would never want to be a part of a reality show that is “targeted at pulling trauma out of people”.
“No shade!” she adds. “There’s many good ones out there and it’s very popular and it has a place of course because it’s popular and people want it. I watch it as well.
“But for me and what I want to represent and where I want to go, Dancing kind of fit that same narrative for me because it’s about fun and it’s about lightness and it’s about dancing.”
Emily and Human Nature singer Phil Burton both received a score of 39 from the judges for their last performances on Dancing With The Stars’ suspenseful grand finale.
The audience vote, however, propelled Phil into first place, giving him the prize and $20,000 for the charity of his choice, NSW Police Legacy.
