ABOUt Me

I'm a passionate Actor, sometimes Director and Playwright, often-utilised Presenter and Mentor, former Journalist and long-suffering Mother to a delightful teenage daughter who seems to be following in my performing footsteps (only she's the real Triple Threat!).

 

Having travelled the world for over 20years, experienced so much love, laughter, heartbreak, pain and danger - I now bring a real sense of urgency, thrill, energy, hardwork and drama to my acting and am the life of the after-party with my many stories of crazy situations (how I got into them and how I got out of them) and fun times I've encountered over the years.

 

But don't let my fun-loving, compassionate and sincere nature fool you...on screen or on stage I can turn into a calculating, authoritative and intimidating persona with the flick of a switch...I love being an Actor!

Oh...and did I mention I live-for Christmas....

You can catch me in either Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast or Canberra at any of my bases there and when we can travel safely again, I have bases in the USA and UK too.

'Michelle Robertson puts in a beautiful physical performance that fully evokes the trauma of the wife, pajama clad, struggling for dignity, yet fully magical in her sadness'.

‘A truly thrilling scene. Genuine moments of discovery for me…an electric and powerful Claire!

dinner with addiction

‘Michelle Robertson is a gifted, natural performer. Her vitality and zest for her art form are apparent. She immediately stands out and has an innate ability to stamp her mark on potentially tricky scenes. Among them was a monologue she absolutely nailed. Michelle doesn’t play safe, rather trusts her instincts and those are finely tuned. We, the audience, are undoubtedly the beneficiaries’.

disgust

'...it must be noted that both Robertson and Burgess are magnetic. The dialogue becomes secondary to the natural warmth and charisma exuded by the two performers; they remain hypnotic on stage despite the convoluted trail of their conversation'

nigella

‘Beginning Act 2 is Michelle Robertson as Nigella, yes, THE food goddess…it is uproariously funny, yet underscored with pockets of truthfulness at the same time. Robertson cleverly intermingles with the audience with hilarious results’.

lysistrata

‘Michelle Robertson did a splendid job in the lead role of Lysistrata…she soon warmed up to take full and complete command of the space’.

NOTE: For this role - I was nominated for Best Actress (Lead role) in a Comedy, Victorian Drama League awards

the critic

‘Michelle Robertson as Susan, a senior arts critic and Jamie's superior, is a formidable and imposing presence on stage – the sort of character that's domineering even when she's encouraging Jamie's autonomy.’.
