Last month we started a new blog segment dubbed ‘Kicking Goals’ featuring Artist, Illustrator and hometown hero Shannon Boyd and his feature on Waverley Councils’ Bondi Beach Wall Initiative.
This month we’re featuring O’Donoghues old gal Patricia ‘Aunty Trish’ Pemberton, who has recently been putting the afterburners on for what’s proving to be an extremely promising acting career.

Dramatic from a young age (and at her time at OD’s), she showed promise from day one. After high school,  she attended Actors Centre Australia, Leichardt to learn her trade, while taking up arms at O’Donoghues as part-time bar staff while she auditioned for roles across the state.

Clearly, her time bartending and (probably) more importantly the countless hours perfecting her trade gave her the edge to really kickstart her career.

Most recently Patricia starred as ‘Amy’ in Ruby Rae Spiegel’s critically acclaimed play ‘Dry Land’ which was shown at the Kings Cross Theatre until August 19 of this year. Pemberton has been described as ‘fearless’ and ‘dynamic’ by The Daily Reviews’ Ben Neutze in her performances as Amy, and continues to make waves in the Sydney acting scene.

Her performances in Dry Land earnt her another shot at the limelight, getting the chance to feature in the Claratyne spring advertising campaign.

From humble beginnings rose somewhat a phoenix from the ashes. We congratulate Patricia on her efforts and achievements. We wish her the best in her career.
