This week’s inter-generational guests:
Greedy Smith (Musician)
Nick-named for scoffing buckets of fried chicken before a live gig, lovable musician Greedy is best known as a vocalist, keyboardist and songwriter with Australian pop/R&B band Mental As Anything. ‘The Mentals’ are currently celebrating three decades of hits with their 30 year anniversary CD Essential as Anything. Greedy’s favourite TV shows were The Samurai, Phantom Agents, The Addams Family, Video Village, The Mavis Brampton Show and Get Smart, and he was obsessed by Marianne Faithfull and Count Dracula!
Sophie Lee (Actor/Author)
Able to reduce (mostly male) crowds to jelly with a single blink, Newcastle-born actor, author and columnist Sophie Lee is best known for her roles in iconic Aussie films “Muriel’s Wedding” (1994) and “The Castle” (1997). Sophie published her debut novel Alice in La La Land in 2008 and writes a fortnightly column in the Sunday News Ltd. Magazine. Growing up Sophie embraced grunge and hip hop, loved eating home-made bread, reading and The Smiths, NWA and David Bowie. She didn’t have a TV and now regrets wearing cycle shorts, crushed velvet, chunky medallions and fluorescent cat suits!
Matt Lee (Choreographer/SYTYCD Judge)
Dance choreographer extraordinaire Matt may be best known as a judge on So You Think You Can Dance, but his fancy footwork has enhanced plenty more. Matt has created funky moves for major pop acts such as sister2sister, 5ive and Human Nature. He’s appeared in the smash-hit “Bootmen” (2000) alongside fellow guest Sophie Lee (no relation!) and is currently working on George Miller’s animated sequel “Happy Feet 2” being shot in Sydney.
