Where the stars of McLeod's Daughters are now.

There is no doubt, no argument, no dispute: McLeod’s Daughters was single-handedly the greatest thing to come from Australia in the last 20 years. No exaggeration.

Forget Olympic Gold Medals or a million and one elections or even having Madonna finally touring the country. We had a few horses, some paddocks and some McLeod sisters who made farming fabulous.

And now, we may just have a re-boot coming straight to our screens after rumours began swirling last week.

It all started when former castmates Simmone Jade Mackinnon and Michala Banas tweeted some curious hints about things to come.

And then, a representative for Channel 9 spoke to the Daily Telegraph and all but confirmed their desire for the re-boot to be gifted to us all.

“We are talking to [creator] Posie Graeme Evans about how we could tackle it. We know how much everybody loves McLeod’s Daughters, it’s an important part of our heritage.

“Nothing is commissioned, or set in stone.”

In its prime the show regularly pulled in more than one million viewers for each episode, which, as an objective fact, is a lot of people.

So where are the cast now?

Tess McLeod

Bridie Carter is now 46, and still acting on our screens. After leaving the show, she worked on and appeared on several television shows including Rescue: Special Ops, Wild Boys and more recently, Channel 7's 800 Words.

36-year-old Rachael Carpani played Jodi Fountain in the long-running series.
