Esther Fwati is an African-born, Aussie-raised girl. A third culture kid who's blended up bringing has given her a spice of her own.
She grew up performing, entertaining and telling stories to anyone who would give her an ear of attention. That upbringing fostered her passion for acting and writing.
Coming from a background in dance (hip hop & contemporary), Esther had her first L.A. experience when she was chosen to represent Australia in the Coke Zero Make It Possible Campaign. She stepped into acting with her first lead role in a Theatre production of The Container by Clare Bayley and then went on to study Full Time Acting at the Film & TV Studio International where she trained alongside many talented peers and under amazing working actors/teachers. One thing she took away was a piece of advice given by teacher and actor, Damian Walshe-Howling - be a creator of your own content. Esther took that small snippet of wisdom and ran with it, realising that's what she's always done and has always been, a creator.
After being chosen as one of the finalists in the first ever Equity Foundation & Screen Australia Diversity Showcase alongside 9 other performers in Sydney, Esther is now based in Melbourne, Australia where she is currently writing and producing her first Miniseries:
A Coming of Age Drama about while a freshly graduated African Australian teen deals with the possibility of being deported from the country, a car crash involving her two best friends and the school outsider forces her to question the events that led up to the accident and the part she played in a tragedy that may end with death.
