To describe Tottie Goldsmith as "multi-talented" is a gross understatement.
Tottie was born into a showbiz family:- her father Brian, the doyen of the Melbourne night-club industry and her aunt, Olivia Newton-John, providing early inspiration along with dance teachers Antonio Rodrigez and Ronnie Arnold.
As a founding member of the band "The Chantoozies", Tottie toured Australia many times, appearing on every imaginable entertainment program and sold over 200,000 records. Upon leaving the band, Tottie embarked on a solo career…more singing and studying acting with the prestigious Beverly Hills Playhouse and Janet Alhanti's workshops in Los Angeles. On return to Australia Tottie landed the female lead in Beyond Production's Fire which was followed by a guest appearance in Bryan Brown's Twisted Tales playing opposite Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush.
Adding but yet another string to her bow, Tottie, in 1996, signed on as host of Channel 10's controversial series Sex/Life which became one of Australia's most talked about shows. During this time Tottie also hosted Channel 10's coverage of the 1997 Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and 40 Year of Television. As if 1997 wasn't busy enough Tottie yet again displayed an ability to successfully conquer new challenges headlining Melbourne's top rating breakfast program on TTFM. After wading through various possibilities in 1998, Tottie accepted the role of Miss Lynch in Grease - the Arena Spectacular, becoming part of the phenomenon in Australian box office history.
