Episode 6: Ayesha Madon What The ELLE?

    • Fashion & Beauty

In 2022, the world was split into two types of people: those who had seen Heartbreak High and people who hadn’t. Heartbreak High was that rare gem of Australian television, one that went absolutely gangbusters globally, streamed by 43 million people on Netflix worldwide, and topping the ‘Top 10’ in 43 countries. What was even more remarkable was that it accurately captured what it’s like to go to an Australian high school now. The series is devoid of lazy cliques and is laugh out loud funny, while exploring issues like consent, gender identity, friendship and sex education. Much like Euphoria, and Sex Education, Heartbreak High turned its entire cast into overnight celebrities, and at its centre was Ayesha Madon. Ayesha is whip-smart, very funny, and absurdly talented, as well as starring in the second season of Heartbreak High, which is out now, she’s just released her first single, Eulogy. We talk about her Zoroastrian faith, recording music in her grandma’s garage, the overwhelming nature of Heartbreak High’s sudden success, the challenges of making music as an independent artist, and more.
