Tammin Pamela Sursok (born August 19, 1983) is an Australian actress and musician. She is best known for the role of Dani Sutherland on Home and Away. She also launched a singing career (under the name Tammin), with her debut single, "Pointless Relationship", released on November 14, 2004 and debuting in the top 10 of the Australian singles chart the following week. She began portraying Colleen Carlton on the American soap opera The Young and the Restless in 2007, which garnered her a Daytime Emmy Nomination in her first year.
Tammin Sursok was born on August 19, 1983 in Johannesburg, South Africa, and at the age of 4, she emigrated to Sydney, Australia with her family. Her mother, Julie is a classically trained pianist and guitarist and as a result, Sursok was brought up surrounded by music. As a youngster, Tammin was involved with the Sydney Youth Musical Theatre, where she pursued her interests in acting, music and dance. She also studied with the Trinity Speech and Drama College and graduated with a High Distinction. Sursok was educated at Ravenswood School for Girls, in Gordon, Sydney, studying speech and drama in her final years of school. She won her part in the long-running Australian drama series, Home and Away, at the end of 1999, after completing Year 10.
In 2000, Sursok began her role as Dani Sutherland on Home and Away. In 2001, she was nominated for, and won the Logie Award for Best New Female Talent category. During 2002, Tammin had the honour of being selected as Junior Youth Ambassador for New South Wales, and in 2003 received the Australian Centenary Medal for her "Service to Australian Society and Acting". While Sursok was working on Home and Away, she also begun taking steps towards starting a music career, by writing her own songs and practicing the guitar. In 2004, the same year she was nominated for Australian of the Year, Sursok left Home and Away to concentrate fully on her budding musical career.
In early 2004, Sursok began recording material for her debut album Whatever Will Be. Traveling across the globe, she worked with high profile producers responsible for churning out hits for some of the music industry's biggest names including Britney Spears, Dido and Christina Aguilera. Sursok's debut single, Pointless Relationship, became the number one most added single to Australian radio in late October, 2004. It went on to peak at number five on the ARIA charts, also earning Platinum accreditation (70,000+ copies shipped).
Sursok's second single Whatever Will Be was the number one most added track to Australian Radio in early March, and debuted and reached thirteenth on the ARIA singles chart, becoming a moderate success. Soon after, Sursok's debut album, Whatever Will Be was released, peaking at thirteenth on the ARIA album chart. The third single from the album, It's a Beautiful Thing, debuted at #30 in the ARIA singles chart.
In August 2005, Sursok temporarily relocated to the UK and made preparations for Pointless Relationship, to be released as her international debut. However, the release was cancelled due to the lack of support the song.
In early 2006 Sursok officially moved into an apartment in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, where she began concentrating on her acting career. She has filmed a brief guest role on CBS' Rules of Engagement, spent a month in Missouri filming a lead role in the independent film Albino Farm, and has completed a supporting role in the movie Crossing Over, which stars Ray Liotta, Sean Penn, Harrison Ford and Ashley Judd. Sursok has also taken on the role of Colleen Carlton on the long running US soap The Young and the Restless (Y&R).
Apart from her role as Colleen on Y&R, Sursok will be appearing in a musical called Spectacular!. The musical is a fairly typical, all-American story, although it will be shot in Vancouver, Canada, and is about a very preppy high school student, Courtney (Sursok), who is part of the school's Spectacular! choir. The group is in very poor shape, with all its talent having been poached by a rival squad, or having left to go to University. Courtney sees salvation in a cocky rocker (Nolan Gerard Funk), who reluctantly joins Spectacular! to win a money prize that would finance his rock 'n' roll dreams. But the rocker doesn't gamble on falling for Courtney.
Sursok was nominated for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series at the 35th Daytime Emmy Awards in 2008 for her performance as Colleen in Y&R.
In an article in the Herald Sun on May 6, 2008, it was announced that Sursok was recording her second studio album, release date so far unknown.
Sursok has a pet Parrot, and two dogs, Smudge and Harry. Sursok moved to USA in February 2006 to pursue an acting career. Sursok is signed with the famous Gersh agency in Los Angeles.
