We all know ‘The Ford Ad Girl’ as the charismatic, bubbly actor on the telly, but who’s the woman behind the car commercials?

Ngaire Dawn Fair is the actress who has captivated the hearts of many online since her adverts with the automotive giant first aired a few years ago.

Speaking to news.com.au, Ngaire – who recently relocated with her producer husband to Los Angeles – has revealed what it’s like to become an object of national affection overnight.

“It just started out as one little ad a few years ago,” the former Neighbours actress said.

“One of the dealer’s came up to me [during filming] and said, ‘I never thought a woman could sell a truck.’ I think they liked that it was a shift in gender stereotyping which is good.”

While she's occasionally stopped on the street by strangers, Ngaire largely ignores the attention she receives online, explaining to the publication she's cautious of "The Ford ad girl" Facebook fan page that has amassed thousands of followers.

“I don’t look at any of that stuff in case someone says something mean,” she said. “I’d just get upset.”

If you love watching Ngaire sell SUVs, don't fret - the actress has recently signed on with the company for another year.

And we've gotta say - we've never loved a car salesperson more.

Listen: there's another car ad we just can't stop watching.
