WHEN HUGHIE MET SALLY . . .
SHE has taken bold new career steps this year, but Kate Ritchie is reminded daily of the indelible impression left by the character she played in Home And Away, Sally Fletcher.
‘‘I remember meeting Hugh Jackman— quite possibly the most charming man on the planet— and interviewing him when he was out promoting another film, which wasn’t Australia,’’ she recalls.
‘‘He was just so lovely and he even asked me how the transition has been (leaving Home and Away). He said he saw me on Sunrise on my final day on set last year and I just thought, ‘this is so bizarre. I’m the one meant to be asking the questions— not you, Hugh’.’’
