McLeod’s Daughters Bridie Carter on living in the celebrity haven of Bryon Bay 

McLeod’s Daughters star Bridie Carter reveals how she avoids ‘surface stuff and shallowness’ while living on a farm in the celebrity haven of Bryon Bay

Bridie Carter lives in Bryon Bay, which has lately become a celebrity enclave that almost rivals Hollywood.

But the 50-year-old has managed to keep life on her farm normal and simple, despite the glitz and glamour closing in around her. 

Speaking to Stellar Magazine this week, the former McLeod’s Daughters star said: ‘I live on my farm and it’s a very simple life. I talk to the women in the supermarket who I’ve known for 20 years.’

She added:  ‘I want to hear about how their day is going, I want to hear if they’re recovering from their chemotherapy, I want to hear if their mum bought that couch or not. 

‘I want to hear about their lives because that’s what connects me to my community, it’s what makes me feel like I belong. And then I know I’m alright and that I have a place in the world.’ 

Although she calls the likes of Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky neighbuors and may come across Zac Efron, Natalie Portman or Nicole Kidman in town, Bridie doesn’t run in those circles.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Bridie said it was ‘miraculous’ that she had landed the role given the current state of the entertainment industry.

‘I think it is miraculous that in these uncertain times when my industry is floundering that I got a phone call to say would I like to come to Summer Bay,’ she said, as re-reported by TV WEEK on Tuesday.

‘I was astounded and ecstatic at the same time. I am very fortunate and very grateful.’
