Home and Away actress Jessica dies after crash
Home and Away actress Jessica Falkholt, who has been in hospital since the St Stephen's Day car crash that killed her parents and sister, has died, six days after her life support machine was switched off.
Falkholt (29), who played thieving waitress Hope Morrison in the soap for a period in 2016, was considered to be a rising star in Australia.
Channel Seven, the show's producer, said the cast was "heartbroken" to learn of her death in Sydney yesterday.
"Jessica's shining talent was recognised and respected by all her cast mates and crew, and her beautiful friendship treasured," a spokesman added.
