Noni Hazlehurst AM (b. 1953), actor and television and radio presenter, cut her teeth in Hector Crawford productions, playing Sharon Lewis in The Box and various characters in Division 4 in 1974–75 before joining the original cast of The Sullivans in late 1976. Between 1978 and 2001 she was a Playschool regular. In 1982 she won an AFI for best actress for her lead role in Monkey Grip, the scintillating film adaptation of Helen Garner's novel. She won again in 1985, for Fran, a harrowing story of a self-destructive single mother, and in 2005 – for best supporting actress - for Little Fish, in which she played the mother of a heroin addict played by Cate Blanchett. Her other films range from the tragic Candy (2006), with the late Heath Ledger, to the agreeable Ladies in Black (2018). She has appeared on Australian television through Waterfront (1985), Nancy Wake (1987), The Shiralee (1987), Curtin (2007), City Homicide (2007-2011), A Place to Call Home (2013-2018), The Letdown (2017-2019) to The End (2019). Famously, she was the anchor of Seven Network's Better Homes and Gardens from 1995 to 2004, remaining on the show after a much-publicised split with her then-husband and co-host, John Jarratt, in 1994. Hazlehurst was inducted into the Logie Hall of Fame in 2016.
