Bindi Irwin; best female talent

Terri and Bindi Irwin

BINDI Irwin has picked up a Logie for best female talent, dedicating the award to her mum, Terri, and dad, the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. At just nine-years-old, Bindi edged out competitors including Home and Away’ s Charlotte Best and Neighbour ’s Adelaide Kane for her ABC program Bindi: The Jungle Girl. She was very excited and could not believe it. She accepted the gong at Melbourne’s Crown Entertainment Complex. She dedicated this to her mum and dad, and she would also like to thank everybody out there who helped to watch Bindi: the Jungle Girl. She also thanked John Stainton, who has helped her all the way through. Terri Irwin said she’s so proud of her daughter Bindi’ s success, saying she was a role model to other kids. Bindi is a sincere person who wants to teach through the medium of television, it gives Terri real hope that they are now focusing on people who are making the world a better place and have a real social awareness. “That’s something I think Bindi can be a real role model to other kids who are starting to look outside of their own personal needs and wanting to know how to fix the planet. Bindi will continue with that for the rest of her life and Terri is very proud of her.Terri Irwin also said she was confident Bindi was living a happy child’s life.Bindi is home-schooled by her mother and a tutor.”Seeing her here tonight is like seeing a child at church, they’re in their Sunday best and they’re not allowed to get it dirty but it doesn’t mean the rest of the week they won’t play hard,”Irwin said of her daughter. Going to the Logies is not a normal weekend for Bindi. This is certainly a tremendous blessing.”

Alex Ryan (Aaron Jeffery)


Alex has a history as a bit of a bad boy, a bit of a larrikin. His relationship with his father, Harry Ryan, was always explosive. He’s been in fist fights with his brother Nick as well. He’s a risk taker, a former rodeo star, a favourite with women and an easy friend to the men he works with. He’s a great farmer too, if not a great stickler for detail, and he has the respect of all who know him well. Claire McLeod was the love of Alex’s life — her death was a terrible blow. Alex gradually got back on his feet and found ways to open his heart again. His great mate, Stevie Hall, helped him through the darkness, and their friendship gradually grew into something much more. During his time running Killarney, Alex has had more than a few battles with father Harry and mother-in-law Sandra, and more than one chance to evaluate where his life is heading. He nearly died in a water tank accident (saved by Stevie) and went bush after losing his brother. After a stinging personal attack from father Harry, Alex fled to  the city where he became engaged to Fiona. Little did he realise that Stevie was about to profess her love to him. It took Alex a long time to realise his marriage to Fiona was doomed, and that he should have married Stevie instead. During this time, Alex had to deal with the death of his father and the realisation that his stepmother Sandra had murdered him. After much soul searching, Alex ended his marriage to Fiona. But by then, events had conspired to drive Alex and Stevie apart. Desperate to get Fiona out of his life, Alex agreed to a massive divorce settlement. To afford this he accepted an offer from his birth father, shrewd city barrister Bryce Redstaff, to invest in Killarney. Bryce’s offer seemed like a good idea at the time…. When Claire died, we all found he was never to have a girlfriend again, and when Stevie and he kissed for the very first time, not long after Claire died, wel hated Stevie, we wanted Claire to come back.  As the show moved on, we got to know Stevie and when they finanly got married everybodie was happy….
