  • A star long before she became H&A's Morag.

    As a child I first saw Cornelia on "The Lost Islands" & few years later she simultaneously turned up on "The Young Doctors" and " Sons & Daughters". I live in the UK(London) & during the 1980s Aussie soaps were snapped up by ITV, regardless of their vintage, as a cheap daytime schedule fillers that nevertheless proved to be popular with viewers. Back to Cornelia whose statuesque apperance, red hair & clipped English accent made her a joy to watch in any production, that even includes H&A. Her departure from "Sons & Daughters" along with co-star Judy Nunn was abrubt & totally uncalled for, no wonder the show went into decline, serves the 7 network right. She's also the niece of "Peeping Tom" director Michael Powell in which she appeared in uncreditted, this film aparently caused outrage upon it's UK relaease & Powell emigrated to Oz. He also directed the film "They're a weird mob" which featured the late Anne Haddy as a barmaid. As I haven't lived in or visited Australia I never got to see Cornelia host "The Weakest Link" which I'm sure she did just as good a job as Anne Robinson.moreless
