Her father is Sicilain (from Lipari) and her mother has English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish ancestry. She grew up in a small beach town on the New South Wales coast called Berkeley Vale. At the age of two, 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'.
