Casey Donovan to host 2012 Deadlys

The 2012 Deadlys will be hosted by two well-known stars of stage and screen, Luke Carroll and Casey Donovan. Both are experienced Deadlys hosts, with Casey most recently hosting the show in 2011 and Luke in 2010. In addition, both are themselves past winners of Deadly awards in the acting and singing categories.

Casey shot to national stardom in 2004 when she won Australian Idol at the age of just 16 years old. The same year, she also accepted her first Deadly Award for Most Promising New Talent in Music. She has maintained a close association with the Deadlys ever since, bringing her powerhouse vocals to the Opera House centre-stage with her spine-tingling performances. Her most recent roles include playing Mama Cass in the hit stage production Flowerchildren and now the part of Lottie in YARRABAH! a new production for Opera Australia.

Deadly Award finalists have been announced and voting in Australia’s largest Indigenous awards night is now open at http://www.vibe.com.au. Strong finalists across all award categories have ensured the Deadlys will be a night to be remembered.
