Bindi Irwin: Why My New Movie Role Feels So Personal

Originally posted 03/15/2013 05:00PM

Most of the world remembers Bindi Irwin as a young girl accompanying her famous wildlife-loving father, erstwhile Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, on his adventures in the Australian Outback.

Bindi, now 14, has shed the ponytails and khaki outfits she wore when she explored the world with her father. In her upcoming Hallmark Channel Movie, Return to Nim's Island (which premieres March 15 at 8 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel), the teenager portrays the lead role of Nim, a wildlife enthusiast who sports cutoff denim shorts and whose long blonde hair flows past her shoulders.

"Acting is something I'm extremely passionate about," Bindi tells PEOPLE. "Nim is the ultimate wildlife warrior so it was great. I could really relate to the role. Nim is such a passionate individual. She stands up for what she believes in and she won't take no for an answer."

Call him a Crocodile Hunter ... in training!

Steve Irwin's only son made his late father proud Tuesday when he publicly fed freshwater crocodiles for the first time at the Australia Zoo in Beerwah.

Eight-year-old Robert Irwin, who was just 2 when his animal conservationist father died in 2006, stood a safe distance away from the half dozen reptiles as he carefully tossed them fish from a bucket.

"It was really, really fun," he told reporters afterward, adding that he wasn't nervous. "Next, I'd like to feed a big alligator, and then a saltwater croc."

The late Crocodile Hunter star Steve Irwin didn't just save wildlife – he saved his father, Bob, from taking his own life after the death of the elder Irwin's first wife in a 2000 car accident.

In an interview that aired Down Under Monday on a TV program called Australian Story, Bob Irwin, 68, recounted his grief over his wife Lynn and how, in the depths of despondency, he packed up his truck and headed to a "special spot" that he'd shared in the past with Lynn and Steve, reports Australia's The Age newspaper.

As Bob Irwin told the story, his cell phone rang in the truck, and it was Steve. "He said, 'I know what you're going to do', and I didn't really have an answer for that and then he said, 'Well, wait there, I'll come with you because we both might as well go.'
