Bundy girl is living her TV dream

WALKING through London with a sign declaring she was looking for love is one of the quirky acting jobs Angela Peters has had since leaping into her chosen craft.

It was an advertisement for an internet match-making service and was one of the more memorable jobs the Bundaberg woman has taken.

Having returned to Australia, Ms Peters is now based in Brisbane and has begun filming in a role as a presenter for Channel 7 television show Queensland's Best Living.

The first episode in the series will go to air on October 18.

Ms Peters graduated from Shalom College in 1993 and went to acting college in Brisbane.

With her family's encouragement, she left a job managing accounts with Optus two years ago to chase her acting dream in London.

“I have an amazing support network,” Ms Peters said.

“I was never going to fall far because of them.”

Parents Michelle and Jim Peters will be keen viewers of the show.

“We're proud and excited (about the show),” Michelle Peters said.

“We don't get to see a lot of her work.

“That's why we're so excited about this show, because it's an easy thing for us to access.”

Although it has been a tough path at times for the presenter, she encouraged people never to give up.

“It's not always easy - you don't know if you will have any luck and you're constantly chasing the work until you become recognisable,” she said.

“But I encourage people to follow their dreams.

“We can do anything we want to do.”
