Alicia Banit is a multi-talented dancer, model and actor from St Helena in Victoria. She is 21 with blonde hair and blue eyes. While attending Year 11 at St Helena Secondary College back in 2007, Alicia was cast in the Chris Lilley produced cult comedy series "Summer Heights High". She played the part of "Kaitlyn" - by far the most eye-catching of the "populars" befriended by one of Lilley's characters - Ja'mie.

Alicia's stint on Summer Heights High has sharpened her appreciation for comedy acting.

``Chris Lilley is really amazing with what he does, there's never a dull moment,'' she said.

Alicia said auditions focused on the chemistry between actors and getting the mix right in terms of improvisation.

``A lot of it is Chris asking us what do teenage girls do in certain situations, so we were able to help him with that,'' she said.

Arguably, one of the most memorable scenes in the Summer Heights High series for Alicia Banit fans takes place in auditorium when Ja'mie and the populars put on a short performance to convince the school to hold a Year 11 formal. Alicia's character "Kaitlyn" plays a sexy "skank" and she does it so well. She wore her school shirt unbuttoned just enough to reveal a nice cleavage and a sexy red lace bra (photo on left). Check out the video clip below!

But it has not been overnight success for the multi talented performer, who has made a string of TV appearances in the past decade since getting her first gig aged six.

While "Summer Heights High" was Alicia Banit's first major TV break, she went on to play one of the characters in Disney's popular teen comedy series "As The Bell Rings" which screens on Foxtel and Austar.

You can also catch Alicia as "Leah" in the series "Tangle" screening on Showtime which has been renewed for a second series. Some fantastic news for all Alica Banit fans is that she scored one of the lead roles in the 26 part series "Dance Academy". Alicia plays the role of "Kat". See photos and video clips below!
