Natalie Jane Imbruglia was born on Tuesday February 4th 1975 in Sydney, Australia. She grew up in a small beach town on the New South Wales coast called Berkeley Vale. At the age of 2 she began dancing, and then moved into a special academy to dance six days a week. She got her first job as a TV extra on Japanese bubble gun commercial as a 'Pinnacle Princess'. She didn't have much to do in Berkleyvale and was a 'surfer girl'. At the age of 17 she was offered a two week trial to play Beth Brennan in the Aussie soap opera "Neighbours" (1985). She and her character became so popular that Natalie stayed on the show for two more years. After she quit the show she went to the nearest hairdresser and cut her once long hair into the shorter style that we see today. She then moved to London and the party and night-club scene. During this time Natalie decided to pursue a singing career and wrote many songs. Then she secured a recording contact and released her first album, 'Left of the Middle'. Since then she has had a lot of media exposure with her album released across the world. Her TV appearances have included "Saturday Night Live" (1975), "The David Letterman Show" (1980), etc.IMDb Mini Biography By: Ai
