Abi Tucker

Abigail Anne Tucker (born 22 January 1973) is an Australian singer-songwriter and actress, best known for acting roles in shows such as "Heartbreak High" and "The Secret Life of Us". She came to public attention as a contestant in the Australian version of "New Faces" in the early 1990s and soon after landed a role in the spin-off from Australian film "The Heartbreak Kid - Heartbreak High". A role in "The Secret Life of Us" gave Tucker exposure as a singer with slots not only on the show plus tracks on spin-off CDs.

It was not until 2003 that her debut album "Dreamworld" was released. Not a musician afraid to experiment with her sound, she tried out a heavier rock style, forming short-lived band "Bully" during the late 1990s whilst living in the UK. Tucker is well known as a live music performer in Sydney whilst her songs have also appeared on "The Secret Life of Us" album (featuring her best-known single, "Everybody (Idiot Free)") as well on the soundtrack to the movie "Angst" (in which she plays the part of May). She also contributed backing vocals to some songs on David McCormack's debut solo album, "Candy" in 2002.

Tucker appeared in the play "Breakfast with Jonny Wilkinson" at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

In 2007, Tucker joined the cast of the rural TV drama series "McLeod's Daughters", as the stubborn McLeod daughter, yet passionate Grace McLeod. Tucker is one of the lead cast members of the show.
