Harold ’s daughter

when he lost custody of her after the death of
he took Sky and ran
away with her to the country.
The only form of contact Sky ever made with her grandfather was by letter
until a few weeks ago when she turned up unexpectedly at his house. Her
entrance wasn’t the usual one either, as she made her way in through the
back door straight into
Harold ’s kitchen. This peculiar and unexpected entrance caused
Harold not to realise at first that this was Sky his
granddaughter. However they soon got talking and he realised that she was
showing many qualities that he remembered from her mother at her age.
and Sky’s growing friendship had one set back when he returned home
to find the house had a peculiar smell.
Harold ’s friend Lou thought that she may be have marijuana in her possession, and searched through her bag. When
Sky caught them in the act she took her bags and left, telling them that it was incense that they could smell.
Harold managed to persuade her to return
to his home, and their friendship continued to grow.
Since arriving in Erinsborough she has become friends with Boyd, and the two
spent time setting up blind dates for his head teacher Candace. Now that she
has decided to stay in Ramsay Street and attend Erinsborough High, only time
will tell what mischief they get up to.

You asked... July 2006
How old you were when you started acting, and was it
your choice or your parents’? – Alice
Ah, cool question. Certainly not my parents. My sisters, maybe. They put me
into ballet classes when I was three. I have no regrets – I did ballet for
nine years and I loved it – and after I started dancing, I just started
acting and singing, too.
On the show, Sky has a wild sense of fashion and her
hair changes all the time. Is your personal style anything like hers? – Emma
Maybe now that she’s grown up we’re more similar, but certainly when I
started and they dyed my hair black and blue, that was pretty outrageous. I
didn’t deal with it as well as I thought I could’ve or should’ve. I mean, at
the end of the day, it is only hair – and it will grow back!
How have you made yourself cry in the emotional scenes
you’ve had recently? Do you use eye drops? – Kirsten
No, I don’t! I’ve got to know Sky so well after three-and-a-half years that
I just find I’m in a zone with her. All I have to do is read the script and
sort of be her, and it comes naturally.
