Kym Wilson was born in Brisbane on April 1, 1973 but spent her early years in Warwick, a small town north-west of the Queensland border. At age three a friend of her hairdresser's mother asked to use her as a model and Wilson was soon signed to an agency. She did photographic assignments and by the age of six she had progressed to television commercials. Wilson was eight when her family moved to Sydney and she took acting, singing and dancing lessons. She appeared in the children's television series _"Professor Poopsnaggle" (1989)_ at age 10. Wilson left school half-way through year 11 to pursue an acting career. She made a splash in Flirting (1991) (alongside Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts) and later that same year in the mini series "Brides of Christ" (1991) (mini). Brides also featured Naomi Watts and Russell Crowe but Wilson was the breakout young star.In 1992 she won a Logie for Most Popular New Talent and in 1993 she was nominated for an International Emmy for her role in the mini series. Wilson then appeared in the Sydney Theatre Company's production of The Crucible before undertaking a two-year stint in the soap "A Country Practice" (1981). For the next couple of years popular cover girl Wilson was everywhere - hosting Video Smash Hits, playing with her country and western band the Honky Tonk Angels and appearing nude in arty Black and White magazine.After A Country Practice ended in 1993, Wilson kept busy. She made guest appearances in local series, played in films and television movies and had an ongoing role in "Heartbreak High" (1994). She also originated the role of Rachel in the Sydney Theatre Company's production of Nick Enright's play Blackrock. In November 1997, Wilson and her boyfriend Sydney barrister Andrew Reyment were the last people to see Michael Hutchence alive, visiting him in his hotel room 10 hours before his death. The ensuing scandal and press attention prompted Wilson to leave Australia for the US in mid-1998. She undertook a three month acting scholarship, assisted by the Winston Churchill Fellowship she had won before Hutchence's death. She spent four weeks at a Shakespearian company in Massachusetts and did a six week course with the Moscow Art Theatre at Harvard. Wilson then decided to stay in America and pursue her career there. With her soap pal Toni Pearen, she filed columns for New Idea magazine about their struggles to crack the big time in Hollywood. In December 2001, Wilson appeared in a Brisbane stage production of Secret Bridesmaid's Business.
