Three vivacious kids; Grace, Jai and Emma, and their mum Jacqui share a Bettina Families profile.
The kids’ favourite thing is working with each other.
“I got to do [my first job] with both Emma and Jai, and it was a really cool experience to get to film on a moving car and to see how they put it all together,” says eldest sibling Grace.
“When I’m on set I have so much fun because I get to play with Grace and Jai,” says littlest sibling Emma.
Mum Jacqui says it’s heart-warming to see how they are growing as young people.
“Watching the kids on set was amazing. I was just overwhelmed with pride; they were doing something beyond what I thought they could do, and I could just see the personal growth they were having,” mum Jacqui says.
This charismatic family are adventurous and enthusiastic, which reflects in their work together.
Mum Victoria and dad Nigel love seeing their kids Chloe and Charlie interacting with others and experiencing new things.
“It’s like living in a secret life, because people are filming you pretending that you don’t know,” says Chloe.
“My favourite thing being on set is when I get to meet new people,” says son Charlie.
Bouncing off of each other’s energy, the Camilleri’s are enjoying spending time together doing something out of the ordinary.
They relish working with Bettina, as it gives them “the opportunity to spend some time together doing something a little bit different and a little bit unique,” mum Victoria says.
“We often spend a lot of time supporting each other’s individual pursuits but being on a shoot and doing this kind of thing is an opportunity for us to do it together and enjoy that,” says mum Victoria.
Young parents Sophie and Liam are excited to see their son Jakai and daughters Amahli and Indie grow and learn to interact even better with others.
Jakai loved filming for the Werribee Open Range Zoo with his parents and sisters.
“The best part was being able to see the animals; laughing and just having a good time with my family!” He said.
Dad Liam says he loves working with his family and Bettina, recommending others to give it a chance.
“If there’s any other families thinking about creating a profile, I’d say go for it: you really don’t have anything to lose!” says Liam.
“Definitely do it,” Angie says. “We have had so much fun!”
Angie’s baby girl Koa-Rae scored an amazing role with us at Bettina: the role of Baby Grace on Aussie soap Home & Away.
Angie says she was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to work with Koa as a newborn on set.
“I thought it was going to be really challenging, but the casting crew were great. The nurses on Home & Away were fabulous,” Angie says.
“I was really impressed with the way newborns are handled on set… The babies come first.”
Angie says parents of newborns shouldn’t be worried; that “everybody helps out,” and there are rules and regulations in place to ensure the baby’s safety and wellbeing is protected.
