Biography

Melbourne, Australia (1999 – 2004)

Holly Rachel Vukadinović (born 11 May 1983 in Melbourne, Australia) better known by her stage name Holly Valance, is an Australian model, actress and singer. Valance began her career as Felicity “Flick” Scully in the long-running Australian soap Neighbours in 1999. Valance left the series in 2002 to pursue a music career.

Valance’s first single as a recording artist was a cover of Turkish singer Tarkan’s “Kiss Kiss” (composed by Turkish “Diva” Sezen Aksu), released in 2002. The song debuted at No. 1 in both the Australian Recording Industry Association and UK Singles Charts charts in April/May 2002. The director’s cut version of the music video was notable in that Valance appeared to be dancing naked. She revealed that she was topless but also wearing flesh-coloured underwear. The footage was then digitally retouched adding strategically placed lighting effects. The song was nominated for four ARIA Music Awards.

Valance’s next single, “Down Boy” peaked at #2 in the UK and at #3 in Australia. Her début album, Footprints, was released on 14 October 2002. It debuted and peaked at #9 in the UK and #15 in Australia. The album’s third and final single “Naughty Girl” peaked at #3 in Australia and at No. 16 in the UK. In 2003, the first single “State of Mind” from Valance’s second album of the same name debuted and peaked at #8 in the UK and at #14 in Australia, but the album did not get into the top 50 of either country.
