4. BONUS: When Lindy Met Meryl

Lindy Chamberlain had infamy thrust upon her, but her first brush with fame came in 1988 when Hollywood producers turned her tragic story into a film. With the Oscar-winning actor Meryl Streep signed on to play the title role of Lindy, Evil Angels (also released as A Cry In The Dark) became the biggest production ever set, shot and produced in Australia. Before getting her best-known role as Pippa on Home and Away, the film producers also cast young Australian actor Debra Lawrance alongside Meryl, in what she says was one of the most important roles of her career.
