Katrina Hobbs


After trying on acting and dance at school, Katrina Hobbs scored two big screen roles: playing teen hero in 1990 alien encounter series The Boy from Andromeda, and young wife to deserting WWII soldier Craig McLachlan in Absent Without Leave. Since then her trans-Tasman career has included a variety of presenting roles, a stint on Celebrity Treasure Island, and two years playing doctor Kelly Watson on Home and Away.

In the lead-up to joining the soap's cast last August, she tagged along with doctors on their rounds at Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital, taking notes on everything from their bedside manner to how they held their stethoscopes. (Sydney) Sun-Herald article on Hobbs acting in Home and Away, 6 July 1996
