Personal Quote:

I'm not changing my name. Remember that I have won a certain reputation with it, and I don't feel like beginning over again with a fresh name. Besides, my real name sounds even crazier. I was christened Georgette Lizette!

Trivia:

She was awarded the honorary A.O. (Officer of the Order of Australia) in the 1980 Queen's New Years Honours List for her services to Australian theatre and performing arts. See more »
