‘That would be the only person!’ Schapelle Corby reveals she wants Lindsay Lohan to play her in a biopic about her life – as she sensationally quits SAS Australia after just two days
She was thrust back into the spotlight this week, after making her reality TV debut on Channel Seven’s new show, SAS Australia.
And on Tuesday, Schapelle Corby revealed who she would want to play her in a biopic about her life, as her dramatic past made headlines once again following her short stint on the show.
‘My sister (Mercedes) always says Lindsay Lohan looks a lot like me, I think that would be the only person,’ she told Confidential.

Lindsay, 34, has played a string of significant movie roles throughout her career – and already has a strong connection with Australia, having starred as a judge on The Masked Singer last year.
Meanwhile, Schapelle was infamously jailed for a drug-trafficking conviction back in 2005, and was placed in a Balinese prison for nine years.
On Tuesday night, Schapelle was brought to tears as she made the decision to leave SAS Australia.
Moments before she left, chief instructor Ant Middleton had singled out actor Firass Dirani, and referred to an incident earlier when the 37-year-old jeeringly said he’d hoped they’d be running.

Ant then directed the others to all run a series of sprints as punishment and ordered Firass to stand back and watch.
But Schapelle struggled to keep up during the punishing exercise, turning in her armband and consequently quitting the show.
As the other recruits continued to run, a defeated Schapelle slowed to a walk as she made her way back to the DS (directing staff).
‘I feel like I have good mind control, but on an endurance level, I don’t think I’ve been pushed that far,’ she admitted.
Approaching the DS, a resolute Schapelle informed them that her ‘time has come’, before ripping off her armband.

‘I’ve had enough. I can’t run this far one second longer. I cannot,’ she said, before breaking down in tears.
Speaking about her short-lived experience on the show, Schapelle said it had taught her to trust people again, after a nine-year stint in a Balinese prison following her drug trafficking conviction back in 2005.
‘This is the reason I came to join this, to open doors for myself and to start to live in society better than I have been. So it’s time to create a new life for myself,’ she added.
SAS Australia continues Monday at 7.30pm on Channel Seven
