Before she wanted to be an actess, she said, ““I really wanted to be a spy. I guess it’s a bit like acting where you play a role. Then I found out you could get killed, so I changed my mind.”
When Freya Tingley appeared in the short film “Beneath the Waves,” she portrayed a deaf girl and had to learn sign language.

Freya moved to Los Angeles at 17 to pursue a career in acting, and studied through the Schools of Isolated and Distance Education to finish her Austalian schoolwork. “It wasn’t difficult to do. I knew my priority was acting and school came second. If I had an audition and meetings I did the school work later.”
