Penny was performing in the U.S when she first auditioned for Home and Away. 2 weeks later she was offered the role of Tori Morgan.
Penny's been acting for 15 years, appearing in multiple TV series and movies. Acting in the Australian production of Wicked has been her favourite role to date.
Soap opera acting is a new challenge for Penny, and she enjoys the fast-paced nature of it. "Plus you really get to establish the character over many years, and form beautiful friendships with the cast and crew."
Tori's older sister Jessica McNamee also appeared on Home and Away.
