What saddens the actress most is the fact these days women feel they can’t be seen with any flaws.
Cormack often has to work long, gruelling 12-hour days, but when asked how she juggles filming with being mum to Te Ahi Ka, five, and Ethan, 19, she simply shrugs and says, “I guess I just do it. Like any other parent or caregiver that has a full-time career, I get up in the morning, take a deep breath, then throw myself into the day and hope everything flows smoothly.”
When she does have spare time, she rides her customised Yamaha XVS 400 motorbike, plays guitar and likes to build, pursuits she’s found help calm her down from her work. She also meditates.
