She considered Perth home for close to three years, so it's no surprise that A Place to Call Home actress Abby Earl jumps at the chance to return to WA.

Fresh from appearing at Seven Perth's 2014 program launch at the Old Swan Brewery last month, the WA Academy of Performing Arts-trained actress is set to head west again to mingle with Perth's stylish social set at Polo in the Valley on April 6 at Duncraig Stud.

And the talented blonde will be in good company, with her A Place to Call Home co-star Aldo Mignone (who stars as her character Anna's on-screen love Gino) joining her in the lavish Telethon Adventurers marquee.

Even though she is up for her first Logie for most popular new talent - along with Mignone who is nominated in the male category - Earl admits she is still getting used to the glitz and glamour that come with being a TV star.

"Since I was nominated I've had some designers offer me some gowns, which was a shock because I thought I'd have to beg for something to wear," she laughed.

But when it comes to frocking up for the polo, the petite star will be looking to Perth designers to add some style and colour.

"I want to wear a Perth designer in some capacity, whether it's a piece of jewellery, shoes, accessories or a dress," she said. "I think Perth is such a hub of creativity."

While her career has already taken flight in Australia, Earl could soon be gracing American screens, having recently signed with Hollywood talent agency 360 Management, which also represents Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, Aussie actress Margot Robbie and Kirsten Dunst.

"I'm putting down a lot of self tapes for feature films over there, which is bizarre yet wonderful. It's kind of like 'Sorry who's in this? Robert Pattinson? And I'll be playing his wife? Oh, right'," she explained with a giggle.

"And the crazy thing about having good management is that your tapes get shown to amazing directors and producers."

"But I feel really lucky and fortunate and I would never for a moment take it for granted."

Although she could soon be bound for Hollywood, Earl is adamant she will never forget her Perth training.

"As soon as I get anything, I'll be on the phone to the Perth papers," she beamed.

"Someone said to me 'You're like their daughter', and I don't mind that, because that was where I was trained. It's really a special place to me."
