Here's everything we know about Toni Pearen's life on and off the TV.
Her big break on E Street.
Toni was studying her HSC when she landed the role of Toni Windsor on E Street in 1989.
"There were big discussions around the dinner table about whether I take the role. And my parents were adamant that I didn't, and I was adamant that I did," she told The Daily Edition in 2017.
In the end, Toni agreed to stay in school and finish her HSC while filming the show.
"I had an on-set tutor, and I had lots of the cast members helping me and tutoring me."
Toni ended staying on the show for three years before she left to pursue her music career in 1991.
