  • Quotes

    • (About Sea Patrol)
      Lisa: It was incredibly physical and demanding, being at sea every day for six weeks, jumping on and off speedboats

    • Lisa: (on her career choices) I think I make brave choices and tackle stuff other people wouldn't. I ideally want to make good drama and I look at what Claudia Karvan's done and that's definitely a career I'd love to follow.

    • Lisa: (on her popularity) While the arts and entertainment are vitally important to the community, it's not like I'm saving lives. I don't get overexcited about that stuff, when things work and people say nice things about me.

    • Lisa McCune: I mean, who needs a relationship in your life when you get to work with Martin Sacks and have that on-screen relationship?

    When I first saw Lisa McCune it was in Blue Heelers. She was great then. She definitely had the talents to pull of her police woman character on Blue Heelers. She is well deserving of the awards she has. She was back in the Coles commercials and then onto Sea Patrol. Her talent quickly shows on a show where technical jargon is spouted ever 5 seconds. Lisa makes herself look like she has always been in the navy she is so great. Her blonde hair makes her stick out above the rest. Truly. She is also a mother of three, which is very admirable. trying to hold down a family and a career is hard to do even for the big wigs in Hollywood.moreless
