    From her rearly role as Emma Plimpton-Patterson in 'The Flying Doctors', Rebecca Gibney has been known and loved by the Australian viewing public. Since the early 1980s, she has been one of the strongest and most recognizeable icons of Australian television culture. Her roles in such shows as 'All Together Now' when she played the warm and sometimes clueless Tracy Lawson to her riveting portrayal of Dr. Jane Halifax in 'Halifax f.p.' have placed her firmly at the top of the pile and that is where she belongs because she can turn her hand to anything from comedy, to mystery, to horror or drama and that is the mark of a talented actress who knows and loves her craft.

    One of the best things about Rebecca's acting style is that all of her characters are so believeable. She really was Jane Halifax just as she really is Julie Rafter in her current hit, 'Packed To The Rafters'. Add to this such amazing tele-movies and mini-series' as 'Come In Spinner', '13 Gantry Row', 'The Maria Korp' story, 'Kangaroo Palace' and a host of others and you can see why this talented and versatile lady will never find herself out of work in this country! If you haven't seen any of Rebecca's amazing performances, then you should, you won't be sorry that you did.moreless

    Rebecca is without a doubt one of the most talented Australian actresses to ever grace our screens. Her dedication to each role she takes on is breathtaking and she truely makes each character believable. Rebecca never shows fear when taking on strong roles such as Jane Halifax in Halifax fp or showing her sultry side in numerous roles including Wicked Love: The Maria Korp story in which she geared up in sexy lingere for the role (despite being in her 40's she is still damn good looking!)

    With her most recent role as Julie Rafter, Rebecca is now able to show her softer and more nurturing side, playing a mother and housewife. This seems to be the role she was destined to play and her grace and humour on screen has made Australian viewers fall in love with her all over again.

    No doubt Rebecca Gibney's star will continue to rise for many many years to come :)moreless
