Failing memory

Sophie Monk is topical in Australia as a participant (I rely on R here for advice), The Bachelorette. I have heard a bit a about her. I remember her from a tv show some years ago. She was a brilliant actor in a tv show. What was the tv show? Internet Movie Data Base is usually a reliable source, but I am not seeing the show I can recall. It was about local council shenanigans in Sydney. It was well before shows like The Office, or our own ABC The Games or Utopia.This is a photo of Sophie Monk.


It is not gelling for me. She seems too young.

After much Googling, finally the the name of the tv showed up, Grass Roots. It was a terrific tv show and what a cast list!

Note number 5 cast list down, Sophie Heathcote, not Sophie Monk. Blame an old man's defective memory. Sadly, and I do have a recollection now, Sophie Heathcote died from a brain aneurysm at the age of 34.



 So, I know nothing about Sophie Monk. Perhaps not a bad thing really. I will remain happy in my ignorance.

  2. Your ignorance where television and celebrities are concerned is a MUCH shallower pond than my own. Sigh.

    1. Ian, Our ABC really doesn't make shows like this now. I like clever and irreverent.

  8. Sophie Monk was in the girl band Bardot. From Wikipedia - Bardot were an Australian girl group which formed in 1999 on the Australian reality television series Popstars.

    So that might be where you know her from. :)
