Spectacular!’s Tammin Sursok: For the Record!

By now, you’ve probably seen her in Nickelodeon’s Spectactular! But Tammin Sursok is far from her control-freak character Courtney—the lead girl who runs the showchoir Spectacular!, and tries to get difficult Nikko, played by Nolan Gerard Funk, in line. So then what is this 25-year-old Aussie native really like? We just had to find out…

She is a triple threat! Tammin can definitely act, sing and dance

“I think that I have always had a great passion for music and dancing. If showchoir was around when I was in Australia then maybe I would be into it like [Courtney] is.”

She isn’t perfect—and is okay with that
“I think I’m more relaxed [than Courtney]. I don’t think I have to have everything perfect. I am definitely not a perfectionist!”

Her favorite Spectacular! shot? The finale
“We spent four or five days shooting it. It is, what I think, the best scene in the movie. There were so many extras and we got to mingle with people. We got to dance and perform. It was phenomenal. I loved every minute of it.”

She’s no biker
“I’ve never ridden a bike before in my life. Well, I have tried. The minute I get on, I fall over. I’m just not very good at it.”

She cherishes the advice her parents have given her
“[My parents always told me to] be yourself and not put on a fake facade for anyone else. Just be true to who you are. I think as you grow up, you don’t really know who you are but learn little bits about what you do in different situations.”

She is doing her part to help the planet
“When I go to the super market I try to bring my own bag. It is something you don’t really think about. Every time you are there you think, what are five plastic bags? But it’s not just five plastic bags, it’s like 5,000. If you have your own reusable bag you can at least say you are saving like 100 plastic bags in a month.”
