Aussie TV personality Alyssa Williams, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, has created a character called Tiger, which is based on the popular TV show “Tron” in the United States.
Ms Williams created the character of Tiger in 2014, after watching the show.
She was inspired by her character’s appearance and her ability to read people.
Ms Wilkins said her character was based on a real person, and she was happy to reveal the character’s real name.
“I wanted to tell the world that my character is actually a real life version of a character I created on my show, and I hope to inspire people to be more creative and more compassionate,” she said.
“Tiger is not just a character who is trying to help others in need, he’s actually doing his best to help himself.”
The Australian actress said she was inspired to create the character because she was a child of the 1980s, when many Australians grew up with a negative view of social problems.
Ms Willis said she had a very hard time expressing herself on the show, which was about family, but also about family values.
“It was like a ’70s sitcom where you had these characters and the character that you have the most in common with is your family,” she told ABC TV’s 7.30.
“You had the mother who was like, ‘Well, I’m not sure how to get out of this life, but I’ll do it anyway’,” she said of her character.
Ms Willis said the character Tiger had been created to help people learn about social issues.
“He’s got his own little agenda to help everyone else understand what’s happening, and he’s got a big heart,” she explained.
“His main thing is helping people understand why they’re being hurt, and what to do about it.”
The character’s name is a reference to the character in the television series “Trenton and Me” from 1985, which stars Robin Williams.
Ms Wilson said the show helped her grow as an actor.
“The show was so positive, but there were so many dark corners,” she recalled.
“So many people, when they’re struggling, would go, ‘I need to see the psychologist, I need to do the work, I can’t do this because I don’t feel like I can,'” she said, adding she was one of those people.
“And I’d do anything to make that person feel better.”
Ms Wilson added that the show also helped her connect with people from her community.
“People who I didn’t know were like, I know you’re going to do it, I see how you feel,” she noted.
“That was kind of a turning point.” ABC/wires
