20 Year old video of Cate Blanchett advertising biscuits surfaces online
Cate Blanchett shows her already honed acting skills to sell Australian biscuits

An old commercial for Tim Tams chocolate biscuits starring the then unknown actress has resurfaced online. It aired on local TV her native country in 1994.

A fresh-faced Blanchett, who this week picked up the Best Actress Academy Award for her performance in the Woody Allen directed Blue Jasmine, would have been around 24-years-old when it was made.

In preparing for her role in Lord of the Rings, it's believed she used this fottage for reference.*
