Career:

Indiana Evans made her acting debut in the Australian medical drama “All Saints” in the 2003 episode called “Destiny's Child.” She went on to star in an American campaign for Kool-Aid, and then landed a regular role in the Nine Network children series “Snobs” (also 2003), where she portrayed Abby Oakley. The show only ran for a season from September 29, 2003 to November 11, 2003.  

“I had been watching Home and Away for quite a while, so joining the cast was quite weird. The show is so fast-paced and at first it was overwhelming but at the same time was quite laid back.” Indiana Evans

Evans's big break came when she was cast as Matilda Hunter, a privileged teenage girl who is forced to move to the Summer Bay Caravan Park, in the long running Seven Network soap opera “Home and Away” in 2004. In the following year, she was nominated for a Logie in the category of Most Popular New Talent – Female for her performance. She left the show in July 2008.

Following her exit from “Home and Away,” Evans appeared in an episode of “The Strip” (2008), the TV film “ A Model Daughter: The Killing of Caroline Byrne” (2009), opposite Garry McDonald, David Lyons, and Cariba Heine, and the short film “Burden” (2009), where she starred as Lara, William's girlfriend.

Still in 2009, Evans joined the cast of the Network Ten Children television series “H2O: Just Add Water” in series three. She played the role of Isabella 'Bella' Hartley, an aspiring singer and mermaid. Evans also performed theme song “No Ordinary Girl,” which is done by Ellie Henderson in series one, and by Kate Alexa in series two.

In 2010, Evans played Naomi Tait in the disaster movie “Arctic Blast,” which had its world premiere at the 2010 Canadian Film Festival in Sydney, at the Dendy Opera Quays cinema, on August 4, worked with Adelaide Clemens, Alycia Debnam Carey and Cariba Heine in the short film “At the Tattooist” and guest starred in “Cops LAC.”

Evans returned to a series regular when she was cast as Tatum Novak in the Australian television drama “Crownies,” which ran on ABC1 from July 14 to December 1, 2011. The same year, she starred in the short film “Smith.” In early 2012, she signed on to play the female lead role in the Lifetime television remake of the 1980 film “The Blue Lagoon” alongside fellow Australian actor Brenton Thwaites. “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening” debuted on June 16, 2012 to mixed reviews.  

In 2014, Evans reprised her role of Tatum Novak on “Janet King,” the spin-off from the 2011 legal drama “Crownies.”

Evans will star in the upcoming U.S. television drama “Secrets & Lies” which is set to debut as a mid-season entry during the 2014–15 season. The cast also include Ryan Phillippe, Juliette Lewis, KaDee Strickland, Natalie Martinez and Clifton Collins, Jr..
