Carla Nott, 20, played an extra on the film and said star DiCaprio didnt make the time for anyone and stayed in the distance. Leo was stuck up, to tell you the truth, Nott said. He was a snob, she said. But it was mainly his stunt double who was there talking to other people and shooting scenes. And Tobey Maguire was really friendly. The indigenous model from Kununurra, Western Australia, is now based in the Hunter Valley, NSW, and spends every Christmas in Darwin with relatives. She said her agent had put her forward for The Great Gatsby gig, which she was offered after auditioning. The film follows the life and times of millionaire Jay Gatsby and his neighbour Nick, who relays his encounter with Gatsby at the height of the Roaring Twenties. We filmed at Manly and Fox Studios, Nott said. I filmed a lot of scenes but they only showed a few in the movie, she said. I did see the movie and I got a quick glimpse of me coming out of a car. We were two chicks rolling up at the palace we were supposed to be lesbians. I thought, OK, I will just roll with that. Nott said she wanted to get work as a dancer. Im into hip-hop and want to dance on video clips, she said. But Id also love to do more work on films. The experience was mind-blowing. ntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l NEWSntnews.com.aul l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l l NEWS Quickweather DARWIN Sunny. Moderate east to southeast winds ALICESPRINGS Sunny MAX 32 MAX 25 FULLWEATHERREPORT:PAGE39 Hills on his last leg HAS Adam Hills become too popular for Australia? The comedian has been on a roll since he pulled the pin on Spicks and Specks and has hit paydirt in the UK with comedy panel show The Last Leg alongside stand-up comedian Josh Widdicombe. SWITCHEDON: PAGE 11 Open speed limits lack support THE Chief Minister would be to blame for any deaths that resulted from the return of open speed limits, the Opposition said last week. Barkly MLA and former Transport Minister Gerry McCarthy said he did not believe the majority of Territorians supported the reintroduct ion of open speed limits. He called on Chief Minister Adam Giles to release the three reports he had commissioned into open speed limits so they could go out for consultation. The final report has been sitting on his desk since April. I think the Chief Minister is really struggling with his decis ion because it comes down to challenging his morals and ethics, Mr McCarthy said. As the former Transport Minister, I would not like to wake up in the morning and know that I scrapped that 130 limit and was responsible for any fatalities. Mr McCarthy said the pro posal had been a crass election promise. Now they just really need to fess up and admit that its a bad policy, he said. Mr Giles admitted the report had been with him since April and said Transport Department staff were the only ones who had seen it. Broadband firm in compo drama A COMPANY formerly in charge of rolling out the National Broadband Network in the Top End has to pay back millions in compensation to NBN Co as the project prepares to connect its first customers in a few weeks. In an answer on notice from the Joint Committee on the National Broadband Network, the Territorys lead contractor Syntheo paid NBN Co $2.64 million in advanced overhead for the NT Region. Installing NBN in the region would be three months late Syntheos fault, NBN Co said. Pepper spray breaks up brawl TWENTY men brawling in the Alice Springs Todd Mall ran away when police covered them with capsicum spray. Alice Springs watch commander Drew Slape said four police officers came across the melee at 2.30am yesterday. People were punching and hitting each other, he said. Police attempted to intervene but as a result of their conduct police used OC spray which resulted in the dispersal of the crowd. Acting senior sergeant Slape said no arrests were made and no serious injuries recorded.
