About BeingMe

“Love is not a crime, denying it is. Having dreams is not a crime, not chasing them is. Life is not a crime, not living it is.”

Hello! I grew up in beautiful Sydney Australia and no matter where I end up in life, will always call it home.

Who am I? I’m a part-time actress, part-time money maker – because let’s face it, most of us aspiring Academy Award winning thespians don’t make much money from our work. I’ve grown up in the creative world having trained professionally as a dancer before training professionally as an actress.

I’ve been performing on stage and screen for most of my life and I cannot imagine doing anything else. Nothing inspires me more than art, creativity in all it’s different forms and other people’s passion.

I’m excited to see where life will take me. It’s going to be a struggle to pursue my dreams but that just makes it all the more worthwhile.

Lots of lovin,

Mel Firbank (aka BeingMe)

  1. My mother was an actor, also in Sydney, so your story is very familiar. It’s a tough gig, and success requires equal measures of dogged determination, training, and good fortune. Most of all you’ve really got to back yourself, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Remember what Lady Macbeth tells Macbeth before he kills Duncan (appropriate given your last post!). Best of luck.

    • Thank you for the wishes of luck πŸ˜‰ In this industry I need as much as I can get! I’ve been training my whole life and have plenty of dogged determination…I think it’s in my blood haha…but luck I can always use more of.
      Thank you muchly!
