Born - 26 September 1948, Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England
Died - 8 August 2022

Vivacious, girlish, English-born blonde singer and actress, in Australia from the age of six to her late teenage years, whose wholesome image and honeyed tones helped give her a string of hit records. In America from the mid 1970s, she had a big film hit as Sandy in the musical Grease, although her movie career was otherwise undistinguished: Funny Things Happen Down Under (1965), Toomorrow (1970), Grease (1978), Xanadu (1980), Two of a Kind (1983), She's Having a Baby (1988), A Mom for Christmas (1990), It's My Party (1996), Sordid Lives (2000), The Wilde Girls (2001), Score: A Hockey Musical (2010), A Few Best Men (2011), Sharknado 5: Global Swarming (2017), High As Mike (2019) and The Very Excellent Mr Dundee (2020), her last. Her first (of two) husband was actor Matt Lattanzi. Created a Dame in 2020, she died following a 30-year on-off battle with breast cancer.
