The throngs of people who came to see the B&B cast at an official meet-and-greet event in Sydney earlier this year were no doubt wowed to see their favorite soaps stars, but Heather Tom ( Katie) was equally inspired when she got a taste of the crowd’s national pride. “At one point, [Australia native] Ashleigh Brewer ( Ivy) got the whole audi- ence to sing their national anthem, which I think was one of the best parts of the whole event,” says Tom. “The whole place sang, and it was pretty epic because it was just so spontaneous. Getting to meet our foreign fans and really give them the appreciation they deserve is so great, and it’s nice to see how much they really love the show. It’s crazy, really!”
Tom loved seeing her co-star lead her comrades in song!
