Annalise – Kimberley Davies:
1993 was the year a certain blond bombshell hit the small screen, when Kimberly Davies officially joined the cast of Neighbours to play the character Annalise. It wasn’t long before the actress and the character was branded as a ‘man magnet’ and ‘blonde bombshell,’ something the media struggles not to do to any off age woman with a bit of sexuality. As soon as she stepped foot on Ramsey Street, everyone knew that Annalise Hartman was being written in to cause nothing but heartbreak by flaunting her good looks. But who knew she herself would be heartbroken on the show as well?
To this day, Annalise is still Kimberly Davies’ biggest role, which is no big issue as Annalise was involved in quite a few story lines. Unsurprisingly, audiences soon found out that the beautiful Annalise was just as dramatic as the Neighbours story lines, and it wasn’t long before she started to make waves.
Any soap opera actress would be envious of the story lines Kimberly got to play about with during her time on Ramsey Street, where she managed to survive a plane crash, have a decidedly mild scare with cancer and eventually found herself kilted at the altar. It’s crazy how dramatic these soap opera stories can get, but then I suppose that’s just the point. It injects a little bit of excitement into normal life.
Ramsey Street’s blond bombshell had many relationships during her time on the show as well, making full use of her reputation. However, her most famous romance was with her landlord, Lou Carpenter. To this day, it is considered to be one of the more memorable plot lines on the show.
Annalise – Kimberley Davies:
Annalise ended up dropping out of school, decided to use her good looks to get by in the world, and soon after she got involved with Mark Gottlieb, Lassiter’s head chef. It wasn’t long after the mid-flight disaster that Mark popped the question, to which Annalise immediately said yes.
Unfortunately for Annalise when the big day came, Mark dramatically stopped the wedding. He announced in front of their friends and family that he wanted to be a priest, so there was no possible way he could marry Annalise. I’m no man of god, but can you imagine turning her down to become a priest?! Talk about temptation!
Her initial exit from the show came after Annalise’s public relations company was conned out of money, which probably gives you an idea of how they were likely running out of story lines for the character. I suppose there’s only so much drama someone can have in their life!
Quite soon after leaving the show Kimberly hosted the TV series Just Kidding! But she eventually made the decision to move to the United States to star in Pacific Palisades rather than continue on with the series.
Annalise – Kimberley Davies NOW:
Since playing the infamous blond bombshell and man magnet, she’s made a number of guest appearances on many shows. She’s appeared in shows like Alley McBeal, Early Edition, and The Next Best Thing.
Kimberly’s also become a reality TV personality, after taking part in I’m a Celeb (quitting after 11 days), as well as Celebrity Circus. You may not remember her from her time on ITV’s Dancing On Ice. Kimberly left the show 11 days in due to a shoulder injury. Sounds like there’s something pretty unlucky about the number 11.
Annalise – Kimberley Davies NOW:
Kimberly looks as gorgeous as ever, and still holds the title of ‘blond bombshell.’ She returned to Ramsey Street to celebrate the shows 20th anniversary.
Kimberly is happily married to a former model turned doctor, Jason Harvey, and the pair have three children together.
