She's a one-woman powerhouse, carving out a niche for one-of-a-kind performances: Christina Bianco's impressive vocal range and comic timing make her a perfect Fanny Brice, the leading lady in Broadway classic "Funny Girl". Christina told us about taking inspiration from the go-getting 1930s showgirl when it comes to pushing herself forward for starring roles, and why her job involves a knack for taking "no" for an answer. We also get a glimpse of Christina's hilarious talent for impressions, and find out who is her favourite French-speaking diva.
