Australia has made some hot exports to Hollywood and one of these is Melissa George. We're getting to know the actress a little better with these ten facts.

  1. She appeared in the American version of The Slap, as well as the original Australian version – both times as the same character.
  2. Remember Ross and Rachel’s nanny in Season 9 of Friends? That was Melissa!
  3. She’s quite the scream queen, having starred in horror flicks The Amityville Horror, Turistas and 30 Days of Night.
  4. For her role in 30 Days of Night alongside Josh Hartnett she had to endure crazy night shoots, finishing work at 07:00AM.
  5. You would have spotted her quite often on M-Net, because she’s had recurring roles in The Good Wife, Grey’s Anatomy and, of course, The Slap.
  6. Like many Aussies, she got her start in the popular soapie from down under, Home and Away.
  7. Just don’t call her Angel! That was the name of her character on Home and Away, and she hates it when people refer to her by the name or ask questions about her time on the soap.
  8. Her résumé includes work with top-notch Hollywood directors such as Alex Proyas, David Lynch and Steven Soderbergh.
  9. In addition to her love for dancing, she also started roller skating as a child and became a national champion in Australia.
  10. She has a son, and is expecting her second child.

Watch Melissa George as heart-transplant surgeon Kathy Magliato in Heartbeat Season 1 every Monday at 19:30 on M-Net.
