Esther Anderson stars as Esther, a model from Melbourne, Australia, in NBC’s drama series “Siberia.” Nominated for a Gold and Silver Logie (Australia’s equivalent to the Emmys) in both 2012 and 2010, Anderson is without doubt one of Australia’s most popular actresses. Anderson’s career started after leaving her home town of Geelong, Victoria to pursue modeling in Asia and Europe, travelling between the two for six years, working in various print and television commercials.
Her onscreen experiences while abroad lead Anderson to set her sights on a profession in television, moving back to Melbourne to pursue this aspect of her career. In 2007, Anderson landed a key presenter role for the Nine Network’s Victorian travel show “Postcards” enjoying travel throughout the state, presenting a varied list of stories from rock climbing to fashion.
In 2008, Anderson was offered a major and ongoing role in the iconic Australian drama “Home and Away,” playing the much loved Charlie Buckton, the role for which she received her Gold & Silver Logie nominations.
