Actress Cornelia Frances tragically passed away on Monday, aged 77, after a long struggle with bladder cancer. The Aussie television icon had numerous career highlights and was well known for her roles on shows including, Home and Away, Sons and Daughters and The Young Doctors.
Cornelia Frances told A Current Affair that playing the "naughty and wicked" characters was lots of fun and "always played the strong ladies."
"I've loved every soap I've been on, it's hard not to. I've loved every one of them."
Take a look back at the six-time Logie nominee's best roles from television to movies.
The Young Doctors
In the late seventies, Cornelia earned her big break in Australian television when she secured the role of Sister Grace Scott in The Young Doctors.
The actress joked about her time in hospital back in January, comparing one nurse to the tough character she portrayed.
"I had only just come out of surgery, and dealing with a fractured hip, which hurt like hell, when this nurse came to my bed and said: 'Get up and walk'! I thought: This is worse than Sister Scott," she told A Current Affair.
Prisoner: Cell Block H
Back before all the reboots, Cornelia played criminal lawyer Carmel Saunders who defended Pat O'Connell in court.
Sons and Daughters
It was Australia's answer to 80s soaps Dynasty and Dallas and Cornelia Frances played the memorable role of Barbara Hamilton in the Aussie soap series, Sons and Daughters.
The Man From Snowy River II/Return To Snowy River
And it wasn't just television for Cornelia. The actress also appeared in the Australian film sequel of The Man From Snowy River as bartender Mrs Darcy.
Home and Away
From 1988 to 2017, Cornelia starred on Home and Away as Morag Bellingham, the evil sister of Alf Stewart. Back in January, she spoke of her desire to return to the show.
"I would dearly love to go back to Summer Bay but haven't heard anything as yet," she said.
Her co-stars and other celebrities honoured her via social media and she will be sorely missed.
The Weakest Link
In the early noughties, Cornelia Frances took to our screens as host of The Weakest Link.
The Australian version of the original British quiz show highlighted just how scary she could be.
