Holly Valance

Born on 11 May 1983
Holly Valance is an Australian model, actress and ARIA nominated singer.

Holly is not your typical 19-year-old. One minute she's soft and demure, the next she's a tantalizing vixen. You never know what you're going to get, and that may be too intimidating for us. Especially since, given her young age, she seems a little innocent to be letting our jaws drop to the floor. Hey, she isn't even legal in the U.S. yet.

So we'll just wait until she turns 21 and is fully developed, and then we'll dream about actually having a shot with her

Valance's first single as a recording artist was a cover of American singer Stella Soleil's "Kiss Kiss", released in 2002. The song debuted at #1 in both the Australian ARIA and UK Singles Charts charts in April/May 2002. "Kiss Kiss" is, in turn, an English interpretation of the song Şımarık by Turkish superstar Tarkan. The director's cut version of the music video was notable in that Valance appeared to be dancing naked, but in fact she was wearing flesh colored panties but no top. The footage was then digitally retouched adding strategically placed lighting effects. The song was nominated for 4 ARIA awards.

Her next single, "Down Boy" peaked at #2 in the UK and at #3 in Australia. Her début album Footprints was released on October 14, 2002. It debuted and peaked at #9 in the UK and #15 in Australia. The album's third and final single "Naughty Girl" peaked at #3 in Australia and at #16 in the UK.

In 2003, the first single "State of Mind" from Valance's second album of the same name debuted and peaked at #8 in the UK and at #14 in Australia, but the album didn't get into the top 50 of either country.

"Desire" was, according to some rumours, to be the second official single from the album and she even made a few performances for the promotion, but it was cancelled due to poor album sales. Following legal problems with her manager/boyfriend, and poor sales from the album State of Mind, Valance was dropped from her recording company.

Though her official website originally reported Valance would release new material via another label, this never materialized, with Valance recently confirming she is no longer interested in recording music, telling Men's Style magazine:

"No one can make any money. It was a really tough slog and I had a good go at it, but it was difficult. You put in so much effort and put in so many long hours for not much return. I was making all my money from endorsements and appearances, but I didn't make that much from the actual record sales. I think everyone is suffering in the music industry. It wasn't just me. I do something until it's not fun any more and then move on. Music wasn't fun any more."

She signed a £3 million deal with the hair products company Schwarzkopf Live to front the new line aimed at an early teen to early 20s market. Valance was seen modelling Cosmic Blue, Sahara True Blonde, Hypnotic Red as well as XXL dresses and XXL hats (each colour has a strapline which referenced other popular culture artists). The adverts could be seen across the United Kingdom at bus stops, shopping malls, on buses and in magazines.

During this time, Valance appeared on Har Mar Superstar's album The Handler singing on tracks "Body Request" and "Back the Camel up".

Film and television career
From 1999 to 2002, Valance played the role of Felicity "Flick" Scully on Australian soap Neighbours.

In 2004, Valance returned to acting, this time in the United States, appearing in episodes of the television series CSI: Miami and Entourage. In 2005, she appeared in an episode of CSI: NY. She then guest-starred in Prison Break in 2006 as Nika Volek, a role which she continued to portray in the show's second season. In 2007 she appeared in the TV series Moonlight.

She appeared in the National Lampoon comedy Pledge This!, alongside American socialite Paris Hilton, and DOA: Dead or Alive, an adaptation of the popular video game Dead or Alive, where she played Christie.

She'll be working on the new Luc Besson feature called Taken starring Liam Neeson in Paris in March, and an Australian drama later on in the year.

Valance is also set to play a Bosnian Muslim in a new movie titled The Tourist, a true story set in the Balkan war


"Without any
good songs or being able to perform or entertain, you wouldn`t survive. It`s about having an equal balance between things. "

you`ve done anything wrong or not people will write whatever they want, so it`s just a matter of not reading it, not buying into it, and hopefully the people that do read it realise that it`s just fictional stories for entertainment. "

I never kill insects. If I see ants or spiders in the room, I pick them up and take them outside. Karma is everything."

"I`ll just be sitting down having dinner with girlfriends or something and people come up and ruin the dinner. "

"I just want to do something risque for my debut, purely because I didn`t want to make an entrance being the pretty, sweet type that I`ve been seen as for the last 3 years. "

"I don`t want to be 35 year
s old and still popping out songs in miniskirts and la-la-la. "

"I fight topless
for about seven seconds, so I wasn' really "umming and ahhing" over it. I thought it was wicked."

"In a way I was hoping it would cause a fuss rather than be just another boring video passing by."
-Holly Valance.

on training for DOA:
For four months before filming started we were training six hours a day, every day. Then, towards the end, twice a day. It was kung-fu, weight training and volleyball. It was full-on. The first month, I thought I was going to die. But we were training where all these seven-year-old future Olympians were backflipping over us. It was like, "We're whingeing about doing the splits when this is going on?" It put things into perspective

on meeting Paris Hilton:
She's a crazy chick. She was quiet and shy on set, but put her in a nightclub and she's in her element. She's young and having fun. I got to hang out with her a couple of times and she was lovely
