    She referred to herself as a ‘daggy closet music queen.’ (In Aussie English, ‘dag’ is no term of endearment.)
    Having been lead vocalist for a local band, she wanted to live ‘the Australian girl’s dream’ to be the next Kylie.
    The fourth actress to play Rebecca, stepping in for her when she went in to have a tumor removed, died of a heroin overdose in 2001 (their predecessors were still alive).
    While working on a local feature film, she experienced intense back pain; subsequent testing indicated the cancer made it into her bones (‘it wasn’t a matter of if, it was a matter of when; the little bastards were going to get me’).
    She did not survive to see the release of her debut CD.
    She had naturally frizzy hair (though it became straightened out for the‘sleek new look’ sought for Rebecca).
    Before TV, she interned at a local FM radio station.
    ‘I think people underestimate the power that they have within themselves, I really do, and I think these kinds of challenges, they force you to look that little bit deeper and see what you’re really made of.’
    Her death promptly became a nationwide event, sparking tributes by Delta Goodrem, Olivia Newton-John, the shows she was on, state officials… and oh, yeah, her own widower.
    Her funeral was held at the very same church where she married almost two years earlier.
    Her brother would join the H&A cast, albeit briefly, a few years later.
