The­atri­cal his­tory un­cov­ered

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS -


AWARD-WIN­NING ac­tress Asher Ked­die al­ways felt a con­nec­tion to her an­ces­tors.

The in­de­scrib­able bond has been some­thing she has longed to ex­plore, and now she fi­nally gets the chance in this heart­warm­ing and fas­ci­nat­ing episode of Who Do

You Think You Are?

Many view­ers may not know that Ked­die was a child ac­tress. Hav­ing been in­volved in film, tele­vi­sion and the­atre al­most all her life, she won­dered where this pas­sion for the arts stemmed from.

As she looks back into the past she soon dis­cov­ers her great, great, great aunt Vi­o­let Var­ley was also an ac­tress and singer and shared un­canny par­al­lels to her own life. It’s won­der­ful to see just how ex­cited Ked­die is to learn of her an­ces­tor’s sim­i­lar path in life and that it may have been the in­spi­ra­tion, in some part, for her own success.

Ked­die then trav­els to Eng­land and looks back as far as the his­toric records go to learn about her fam­ily his­tory. What un­rav­els is an in­trigu­ing and ex­cit­ing story with the ac­tress dis­cov­er­ing she has links to roy­alty, in­clud­ing King Ge­orge IV’s pri­vate band. Given the in­ter­est in Ked­die from her

Off­spring and Pa­per Giants roles, this episode is an en­ter­tain­ing and en­joy­able one that view­ers will hap­pily fol­low.
