Rachael: (recalling the filming of a scene in "McLeod's Daughters" where she was showing a 400kg bull) We were shooting it and there were extras everywhere, and the bull stepped on my foot and stopped walking. It was the most painful thing ever. It went straight through my boot. The bull just stood there and looked at me. I lost my voice I was in so much pain. It was awful. I think I broke my little toe. But I've been told It was funny watching it happen!
Rachael: (her fondest Christmas memory) The picture of me sitting on Santa's knee. My mum had taken me to the shopping centre really early, just so I could be the first child to sit on Santa's knee.
Rachael: (on the best Christmas present she's ever received) My very first bike. I loved it so much; I sat on it all day. I even ate my Christmas lunch sitting on it!
