    • Holly: (on celebrating her first wedding anniversary) We had a massage and a facial treatment that were given to us for our wedding. I told Paul I'd really like to go for a walk in Sydney's Botanic Gardens but, secretly, I'd booked a company to provide a private chef and make a gourmet hamper. When we got to the Botanic Gardens, there was a chef waiting at the gate! We had a three-course picnic overlooking Fort Denison, which is where we got married. Paul had no idea - he was blown away. Then we stayed at a hotel for the night, so it was really nice.

    • Holly: (asked if it was a big decision to leave "Home And Away") It was the end of my contract and I'd always said I only wanted to do 18 months, so they wrote my storylines with that in mind. I guess there wasn't really anywhere else for Amanda to go - she's done pretty much everything. It's actually been nearly two years since I started playing her.

    • Holly: (on her "Home And Away" character Amanda) There's a reason for Amanda being the way she is. She's had a hard life and a tough upbringing, and often doesn't set out to hurt anyone. Really, joining the show and playing Amanda has been great for me!

    • Holly: (on her first kiss) It was a game of Truth or Dare and all the boys were the children of my parents' friends. I ended up kissing all three of them!

    • Holly: (on working with a puppet on "Agro's Cartoon Connection") I think the most difficult part of working with Agro was keeping up with his fast wit and funny comments. He kept us on our toes!

    • Holly: (on the best Christmas present she's ever received) I got a horse when I was about 10. I was a very lucky girl. We called it Bundy.

    • Holly: (what people would be surprised to know about her) That I have coeliac disease, which means I'm allergic to gluten. No bread or pasta for me!

    • Holly: (would she ever appear in her own reality TV show) I probably wouldn't jump at it, but then again, you can never say never.

    • Holly: (if she could go anywhere in the world for a holiday…) I've been to a few countries but still can't find anywhere that beats Australia. I think I'd like to go around Australia.

    • Holly: (on running out of petrol) My mum and I ran out of petrol going to my audition for Agro's Cartoon Connection.

    • Holly: (the worst meal she's ever eaten) It was beef stroganoff that I cooked! Instead of sour cream, I used vanilla yoghurt. It was a complete disaster.

    • Holly: (how she spends a typical Saturday morning) A nice walk along the beach, breakfast in a café and then hanging out with my husband and friends.

    • Holly: (the things in her handbag) My car keys, purse, lip gloss, a bottle of water and some sunglasses.

    • Holly: (health food fanatic or a junk food junkie…) I'm a health food fanatic who loves to splurge on junk food, but only very rarely.

    • Holly: (what she would cook if a guest came for dinner) Probably a roast. They're the best home-cooked meals.

    • Holly: (The first person she ever kissed) It was a game of Truth or Dare. All the boys were the children of my parents' friends. Us girls ended up kissing all three of them.

    • Holly: (The three possessions she can't live without) My photos, my fridge, because I love food and could not imagine life without it! And my car - I live in it most of the time.
