therealonj , you were the most gorgeous lady inside and out, you are a true Aussie icon and to play your daughter on screen in A FEW BEST MEN was beyond an honour. Seeing you star in the huge Hollywood blockbuster GREASE with your natural accent was so instrumental to me as a little girl, helping me to believe that it was possible for an Aussie girl to star in huge international musicals. You were the reason I auditioned for my high school production of GREASE at 15 - I was only in the chorus, but it was a start! You tried to teach me about health years before I took it seriously. You were so kind to me and it was such a blessing to know you Olivia. I’ll never forget us singing at the piano in our lunch break on set together - what a complete legend you are! I am so sad you are gone 💗 Love and Light always to you ONJ, Rebel xoxo
