Many Australians grew up watching Susan Hannaford as Kitty on The Sullivans.
The teenager won over Australia’s heart playing the shy but spirited character on the long-running family TV show. The series told the story of an average middle-class Melbourne family and the effect the Second World War had on their lives.
Kitty started the series as a young, sad girl and later grew up to become a nurse, wife and mother. Hannaford and her character Kitty epitomised the wholesome Aussie culture of the mid-century.
