At age 17, Melbourne-raised Lisa Crittenden was playing daughter to Ilona Rodgers on Australian soap The Sullivans. In 1992 she shot into Kiwi TV history as hardbitten chief nurse Carrie Burton on Shortland Street, after a memorable line about Guatemala in the soap's first 10 minutes. She sang in spin-off single 'Keeping Up the Love Thing' and acted in Cover Story and short Black Bitch, before returning to Australia.
You're not in Guatemala now Doctor Ropata. The immortal line uttered by Director of Nursing Carrie Burton (Lisa Crittenden) in Shortland Street's debut episode, 25 May 1992
