Alycia has appeared in several TV series including Martha's New Coat, McLeod's Daughters and pilot Galyntine. In December 2014, it was announced Alycia had been cast in the lead role of Alicia Clark on AMC's new series Fear the Walking Dead.
- Alycia started acting when she was 8 in Rachel Ward’s award winning short feature “Martha’s New Coat”.
- From the inner-west of Sydney, Alycia has also appeared in “Dance Academy”, and “McLeod’s Daughters”.
- She was a finalist in the prestigious Heath Ledger Scholarship.
- She has never been to the US and is obviously incredibly excited about the opportunity of NEXT STOP HOLLYWOOD.
- “It’s definitely a happening place. I feel like there is a lot of life going on. People hear you’ve done one thing and that you’ve done a good job or you’re testing for something and then all of sudden everyone is interested.”
- Alycia will be traveling to LA with her mum Leone, who is a TV writer of kids shows such as “Hi-5” and “Giggle and Hoot”.
- “My mum is like the rock in the family. I am so happy she is coming with me.”
- One of the many obstacles to overcome is getting around in LA to auditions.
- “Mum really doesn’t want to drive around LA. We’re going to have to find a different solution because as a left handed dyslexic woman with absolutely no sense of direction, not only is it a bad idea for her but it’s probably a bad idea for everyone on the road at that point in time,” Alycia laughs.
- Actor: “Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett, and young actors like Jennifer Lawrence and Mia Wasikowska.”
- TV Shows: “United States of Tara”. Toni Collette, she’s fantastic. I love “Skins” too.”
- About LA: “The hype. The hype of LA and of Hollywood is quite remarkable. It’s something I didn’t expect and it’s something I wasn’t kind of prepared for. People hear you’ve done one thing and that you’ve done a good job or you’ve booked a role or you’re testing for something and everyone is interested, everyone knows, people are ringing your agent, your manager and like oh who’s this girl? What’s she doing? I want her in this… and suddenly, you’ll walk into a normal everyday casting and there will be eight people in the room rather than two.” “Oh, and also Madame Tussauds. My mum and I had an awesome time playing up with the wax figures. It was hilarious.”
