Inspirational Woman: Zoe Tuckwell-Smith

Inspirational Woman: Zoe Tuckwell-Smith

Zoe Tuckwell-Smith is one of Australia’s best-loved young actresses. Known for her leading role in Winners & Losers, she has appeared in many films and TV series, including Home & Away, All Saints and thriller, Gone. She lives in Melbourne with actor/director partner Damon Gameau and their one-year-old daughter, Velvet.

 

Your little girl has just turned one! How has your life changed in a year?

Magnificently. I never expected to love being a mummy as much as I do. It's the most joyful I’ve ever felt!

 

How do you juggle working as an actress and being a mum?

I don't really! I only went back for a few months after Velvet was born to finish up a job I’d been on for some time. It was really difficult juggling it all. I'm finished now and have taken the rest of the year off to be a mum.

 

Are you a healthy eater?

Yes, I eat really well and enjoy cooking a lot. I prefer savoury food over sweet any day and I’m sure most of my wellness comes from having healthy, nourishing food and a good all round diet.

 

And how do you stay fit and h4?

I'm a huge fan of baby wearing (wearing or carrying a baby in a sling or in another form of carrier).  It's both strengthening for mamas and calming for babies. I'm h4er and fitter now than I was before having a baby for sure.

 

I also do Pilates only once a week to help with core strength, particularly after having my baby.  Other than that I get enough incidental exercise running around after our girl; playing, crawling, lifting and jumping around is my workout!

 

As far as my mental wellbeing is concerned I mediate by simply breathing steadily when I can for about 20 minutes a day, usually while velvet naps. I also like to stop now and again during the day and really take in a moment very consciously and fully experience it, kind of like making life a meditation and drawing inspiration from whatever is around me.

 

What are your favourite Ere Perez products and handbag must haves?

The only makeup I wear when I’m not working is mascara and Ere Perez natural almond mascara is my absolute favourite. It's so gentle. I know it's a big makeup faux pas to admit that I often go to bed without taking it off, but my eyes have never been irritated by it, so there you go!

 

I'm also a fan of any product that does multiple things, so the beautiful beetroot cheek & lip tint is a good one for me to keep in my purse for a little extra something if I'm out and about and feel like a pep up!

 

How do you most like to spend family time?

I just love to be outside in nature. We have an incredible environment where we live. Amazing walks. We head out with velvet in the carrier and wander in the sun or rain or whatever.

 

What are your strengths and weaknesses as a mum?

I'm patient and feel like I understand our girl really well. I just get her and she gets me. I'm creative and inventive with games and things to do, that's the actress in me. My weakness is finding time for myself. I actually don't crave it like some mums do, so I have to force myself to go and exercise or whatever. I prefer being with Velvet; she's brought so much joy into our lives.

 

You also have a blog, urthlingz. How did that come about and what are you hoping to do with it?

It's just my little outlet really. I don't know what it is other than my intuition speaking from time to time and a desire to reach people's hearts. I can feel it evolving organically. I have a sense that more and more my inspiration for it will come from my journey as a mother and the joy of experiencing life in new ways with our girl.

 

Zoe is currently working on a documentary called "That sugar film" with her partner Damon Gameau. 

 

The documentary is a unique experiment to record the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, with the protagonists consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as 'healthy'. Damon highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves. Zoe stars alongside other well-known actors and actresses, including Stephen Fry, Isabel Lucas, Jessica Marais and Brenton Thwaites.

 

Zoe Tuckwell Smith: Una Mujer que Inspira

 

Zoe Tuckwell Smith es una de las actrices jóvenes más amadas en Australia, mejor conocida por su papel en la serie “Winners & Losers”, también ha participado en muchos filmes y series de televisión incluyendo “Home & Away”, “All Saints” y la película “Gone”. Zoe vive en Melbourne, Australia con su pareja, el actor y director Daman Gameau, y su pequeña hija Velvet de un año de edad.

 

¡Tu pequeña hija acaba de cumplir un año! ¿Cómo ha cambiado tu vida durante el último año?

Ha sido genial, nunca pensé que disfrutaría tanto ser mamá. Es la alegría más grande que he sentido.

 

¿Cómo le haces para combinar tu rol de actriz y tu rol de mama?

En realidad no lo hago, sólo regresé un par de meses después de que Velvet nació para terminar un trabajo que ya había empezado, fue muy difícil; terminé y me dediqué el resto del año a ser mamá de tiempo completo.

 

¿Comes sanamente?

Sí, como muy bien y además me encanta cocinar. Prefiero la comida salada que la dulce y estoy segura de que mi bienestar proviene de comer alimentos nutritivos y de tener una dieta sana y balanceada todo el tiempo.

 

¿Cómo le haces para mantenerte fuerte y en forma?

Soy fan de traer a mi bebé para todos lados, ya sea cargado o en carreola. Es muy buen ejercicio para las mamás y a la vez muy relajante para los bebés. Estoy mucho más fuerte y en forma ahora que antes de tener a mi bebé.

 

También practico Pilates una vez por semana para tonificar mis músculos, en especial después de haber tenido a mi bebé. Además hago mucho ejercicio accidental al correr detrás de mi niña, al gatear, saltar, y brincar junto con ella, esa es mi rutina diaria de ejercicios.

 

Mi bienestar mental también es importante para mí, por eso cuando Velvet duerme siesta aprovecho para meditar 20 minutos diarios; simplemente cierro mis ojos y respiro detenidamente. También me gusta hacer pausas durante el día para poder apreciar el momento y vivirlo al máximo. Es como hacer de la vida una meditación e inspirarme con todo lo que está a mi alrededor.

 

¿Cuáles son tus productos favoritos de Ere Perez y los indispensables para traer siempre en tu bolso?

Sólo uso mascara cuando no estoy trabajando y

 

la Mascara con Aceite de Almendras de Ere Perez

es absolutamente mi favorita. ¡Es tan suave! Sé que es un gran error admitir que a menudo voy a dormir sin desmaquillar mis pestañas sin embargo mis ojos jamás se han irritado con ella.

 

También me encanta la Barra de Labios con aceite de rosa mosqueta en tono “Love“. Soy fan de los productos que te dan múltiples beneficios así que el

 

Tinte Multiusos con extracto de betabel

es esencial para traer en mi bolso ya que me da un extra si ando fuera y quiero animarme un poco.

 

¿Cómo suelen pasar su tiempo en familia?

Amo pasar tiempo afuera, en la naturaleza, tenemos un medio ambiente hermoso en donde vivimos, hacemos unas caminatas increíbles, salimos con Velvet en su carreola y disfrutamos del sol, la lluvia y todo a nuestro alrededor.

 

¿Cuáles son tus fortalezas y debilidades como mamá?

Soy muy paciente y siento que entiendo a nuestra hija muy bien. La entiendo y me entiende. Soy muy creativa e invento juegos y cosas qué hacer, saco a la actriz que hay en mí.

 

Mi debilidad es encontrar tiempo para mí, en realidad no pido mi tiempo tal como lo hacen otras mamás; así que tengo que forzarme y salir a hacer ejercicio o cualquier otra cosa. Prefiero estar con Velvet, ella ha traído mucho gozo a nuestras vidas.

 

También tienes un blog: Urthlingz. ¿Cómo es que empezó el blog y qué esperas de él?

En realidad es mi pequeño escape. No es más que mi intuición que habla de vez en cuando y el deseo de llegar a los corazones de la gente. Puedo sentir como evoluciona orgánicamente. Tengo la sensación de que mi inspiración proviene de mi experiencia como madre y del gozo de experimentar la vida en nuevas formas con nuestra pequeña.

 

Zoe está trabajando actualmente junto con su pareja Damon Gameau en un documental titulado “That Sugar Film”.

 

El documental es un experimento único que registra los efectos que tiene en un cuerpo sano llevar una dieta alta en azúcar, los protagonistas consumen sólo alimentos considerados como “nutritivos”. Damon destaca algunas de las cuestiones que abundan en la industria del azúcar, y nos habla sobre su nivel de importancia en los anaqueles de los supermercados. Zoe protagoniza el documental junto a otros actores y actrices muy conocidos, entre ellos Stephen Fry, Isabel Lucas, Jessica Marais Y Brenton Thwaites.
