Danielle Cormack has snapped up a top acting award - in Australia.

The Kiwi actress and former Shortland Street star took home the Most Outstanding Actress award at the Logies, Australia's prestigious acting awards show.

She won the award for her role in season two of Wentworth, playing hard-nosed criminal Bea Smith who is locked up in an all-woman prison.

Cormack was nominated for the same award last year, but missed out.


She recently told the Herald she was "happy" working in Australia.

"I'm really chuffed that I've been part of three really great shows that have put me on firm footing over there," she said.

"And they've been three very tonally different shows, and very different characters too, so I'm going to ride this craze for as long as it will go."

Other winners on the night included Carrie Bickmore, who won the award for Most Popular Personality on Australian television, and Most Popular Presenter
