Alix Bushnell (born 1983) is a New Zealand actress, best known for her role as "Britta McMann" on the television series, Go Girls.

Early life[edit]

Her first celebrity crush was Leonardo DiCaprio when she was fourteen, and her favourite school subjects were English and music. She has an interest in 16th century costume and culture.

Bushnell enjoys walking her dog, going to the gym, hanging out with friends and reading.[1] Bushnell has one son.[2]

Career[edit]

Despite a role in the 1994 film, Bread & Roses, Bushnell's early focus was on her musical career; her musical abilities had been recognized by her mother at the age of eight, and Bushnell studied piano and classical singing until her early twenties, when she began to feel stifled by the rigid structure of classical music, and consequently turned her creative focus to acting.[3]

Bushnell auditioned for Toi Whakaari, and was admitted on her second attempt. She won the role of Britta McMann, five months before graduating.[4]

Currently, Bushnell is teaching year 9 English and year 11 Drama at Rathkeale College in the Wairarapa, where she is well-known for working closely with her Sound and Lighting associate Charles Gordon.
