TV WEEK has named stunning singer, actress and Australian sweetheart Samantha Jade as its first-ever TV WEEK Logie Awards Ambassador.
The star has enjoyed a spectacular year since her TV WEEK Logie Award nomination in 2015 for her lauded acting debut in miniseries INXS: Never Tear Us Apart.
Samantha’s role as ambassador will include performing at the TV WEEK Logie Awards nominations event in Melbourne on April 3rd. She will also make key appearances leading up to the TV WEEK Logie Awards on May 8, where she will be the official Red Carpet Social Media Ambassador.
“This is the most amazing opportunity,” Samantha says. “Last year was my very first Logies and I’m so honoured and excited to be part of it all. I can’t wait to support such an amazing event, and to interview some of my idols on the red carpet and behind the scenes. It’s going to be so much fun!”
TV WEEK publisher Jayne Ferguson is thrilled to have Samantha on board for this year’s event. “Samantha is one of our brightest young talents and most recognisable Australian performers, with an already spectacular television history,” Jayne says. “She won over the country by winning The X-Factor and followed that up with an acting debut as Kylie Minogue that had everyone talking – and watching! As well as performing all over the country in 2016, she will also be joining the ever-popular Home And Away. We couldn’t think of a better person to be our first ever TV WEEK Logie Ambassador.”
TV WEEK editor Emma Nolan calls Samantha “one of the hardest-working young women in the Australian entertainment industry”. “Samantha is a favourite of ours at TV WEEK and has proved to be a popular cover choice,” Emma says. “Readers respond to her down-to-earth and incredibly likeable nature. More than that, Samantha proved what a versatile performer she is when she took on the role of Kylie Minogue in INXS: Never Tear Us Apart. And, I can’t wait to see her on Home And Away. Her bubbly and infectious personality will make Samantha a hit come Logies night!”
