This isn’t Delta’s first movie role, with the songstress taking on the role of Olivia Newton-John in the biopic of her life – Olivia Newton-John: Hopelessly Devoted To You in 2018.

Speaking about the role at the time, Delta said that it was one that she “couldn’t imagine not doing.”

“Olivia is someone I’ve looked up to as a role model,” she explained to TV WEEK.

“I wanted to take care of this role, and nurture it the way Olivia has cared for me over the years.”

Although the singer was originally made famous for her well-known for her role on Neighbours as Nina Tucker, the 38-year-old set her focus on music after leaving the show and signing with Sony at just the age of 15.

Delta recently spoke to The Australian Women’s Weekly about her work ethic and the drive she had that most teenagers lack, saying “I was enamoured with this idea of creating stories with acting and music.

“I was very much the driver,” Delta said about her parents role in her young stardom.

“My mother was a lioness in teaching me to hold my own space. My parents had incredible common sense and stayed by my side the whole time. I was never anywhere without a parent next to me when it came to being in an adult world. And they instilled in me that sense of, ‘If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.’ You have to show up on time and do a good job.”
