Summary

From a young age, I could lie like a chop in gravy. I loved the thrill of crafting a story. It wasn't until my 20s that I made the connection that lying is a lot like acting....

For almost 30 years, Lynne McGranger has been entertaining, enthralling and bringing smiles to TV viewers all around the world. A veteran of Home and Away, a popular soap opera syndicated to more than 80 countries, Lynne was recently acknowledged as a 'TV actor legend' when she became the longest-serving female cast member of any Australian TV show. Her beloved character, Irene Roberts, has been a font of wisdom, good humour and unforgettable lines for decades. But Lynne's story goes far beyond Summer Bay. From tales of a childhood full of fad diets in the 1950s (tuna, milk and oranges, anyone?), to embarking on a teaching career (before realising that kids en masse made her nervous), to landing a 'guest role' on Home and Away that's lasted 28 years, Acting Up will have listeners laughing out loud and nodding in recognition.

From a self-confessed 'accident looking for a place to happen' comes a frank, heart-warming and hilarious memoir, guaranteed to enthral listeners everywhere.
