NEWS.COM.AU – IT WAS during a 10-minute standing ovation for Australian movie These Final Hours at this year’s Cannes Film Festival that young Perth actor Jessica de Gouw knew she had chosen the right career path.

“To have gained such a response … that’s why I’m an actress,’’ de Gouw says. “Cannes was amazing. We had no idea what to expect and how the film would be received. As soon as the credits ended and the lights came up it was an amazing feeling to have connected with an international audience. When we arrived for the first screening there were queues around the block. The amount of people who have already reached out to this film … for the film to have moved so many people … it’s pretty fulfilling to experience this.’’

These Final Hours, directed by Australian Zac Hilditch from his award-winning screenplay, follows the last day of self-obsessed James (Nathan Phillips) as he makes his way to the ultimate apocalyptic party as the end of the world draws near.

James’ first stop is to visit his secret lover Zoe, played by de Gouw, who is at a beach shack and wants a genuine connection before the apocalyptic fire ball hits Perth.

NEWS.COM.AU – Rachael Taylor, Margot Robbie, The Hunger Games’ Stef Dawson … rising star Jessica De Gouw has joined a growing list of Aussie actresses that have found Hollywood easier to crack than their own, homegrown film industry.

Like most “overnight sensations,” the 26-year-old West Australian would like to think that she at least paid some of her dues.

But even De Gouw is surprised by the speed with which her career took off after she moved to Los Angeles two years ago.

After landing her first screen role in Southern Star TV series The Sleepover Club at the tender age of 16, De Gouw decided that, in the interests of career longevity, she should first study her craft at Curtin University before attempting the difficult feat of making it as a professional actor.

On graduation, she moved to Sydney to look for work.

“I did bit and bobs of TV and film,’’ says the actress during a break from filming TV series Deadline Gallipoli with Sam Worthington and Hugh Dancy.

“But it was hard to crack so I thought I would just take the leap. I first went to LA in mid-2012 – packed a bag and went over there.”

VARIETY – Well Go USA Entertainment has bought U.S. rights to apocalyptic adventure “These Final Hours,” which is being screened at Cannes in Directors Fortnight, for release later this year.

First-time Australian director Zak Hilditch also wrote the film. Celluloid Nightmares is selling the international rights.

“These Final Hours” centers on a self-obsessed man, played by Nathan Phillips, who’s on his way to a party on the last day on Earth and winds up saving the life of a little girl searching for her father. It was filmed over five weeks in Western Australia.

Paradigm handled North American sales on behalf of Roadshow.

Hilditch won the Critics’ Award for best Australian feature at the Melbourne Film Festival last year. Phillips’ credits include “Snakes on a Plane” and “Wolf Creek.”
