Melanie Vallejo in "Dying Breed" (2008)

Melanie Vallejo (Madison, Mystic Force) played a supporting role in the Aussie horror film "Dying Breed." The film revolves around Nina who is haunted by her sister's death in the Tasmanian bush after taking a photograph of a paw print that Nina believes belongs to the presumed extinct Tasmanian tiger. So Nina & her boyfriend Matt enlist the help of his best friend Jack to finance a trip to investigate the Tasmanian wilderness. Melanie Vallejo stars as Rebecca, Jack's real estate agent girlfriend who comes along for a little vacation time with her man. After meeting the strange and secluded locals, the foursome ventures deeper into the bush where tragedy strikes and they find themselves being hunted down and Rebecca is the first to go. Still, Vallejo appears in most of the movie.

Hilary Shepard Turner on "Murphy Brown" (1989)

Hilary Shepard Turner (Divatox, Turbo-Space) guest starred on the hit sitcom "Murphy Brown" back in the show's first season. In the episode "It's How You Play the Game," Murphy Brown and her co-workers attempt to raise their ratings with a controversial segment pitting housewives against hookers on live television. Turner appears as one of the hookers named Jessie, who tells Murphy Brown about the wonders of her career and then gets insulted by the prudish housewives, leading to an on-set fight between the two groups, which leaves Murphy Brown and her crew stuck in the middle and their ratings soaring.

Anna Hutchison, Ria Vandervis & Jake Lindesay on "Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities" (2009)

The sixth episode of "Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities" finds Anna Hutchison (Lily, Jungle Fury) continuing her starring role as Alison Dine, the girlfriend of drug lord Terry Clark. Alison is back to defending her ex-boyfriend Wayne Robb, who Terry discovers is back on drugs having used the money that Alison convinced Terry to give him to start a business. After Wayne is caught by airport security with drugs in his bags and spills details about Terry's operation, he is permanently ousted from Terry's group. Terry himself is forced to head to New Zealand to avoid police suspicion after ordering the deaths of two of his other employees. This leaves Alison to take care of the business in his absence. Ria Vandervis (Miratrix, Overdrive) makes her debut as Kay Reynolds, who becomes fast friends with Alison who recruits her to help with transporting the drugs out of the country. Alison forms her own all-female team to get the job done. Mystic Force guest star Jake Lindesay (Ben, Mystic Force) makes (presumably) his final appearance as Wayne Robb in this episode, as he is last seen battered and bruised on the side of the road for his betrayal of Terry.
