R.I.P. NINGALI LAWFORD

I am deeply saddened by the sudden death of actress Ningali Lawford-Wolf who died in London over night. She was only 52 years old.

I met Ningali for the very first time when she had her one woman show Ningali in the Fremantle Moores building in 1994. It was brilliant and I went to see it two more times and told everyone I knew to not miss it.

Ningali was a Wangkatjunka woman who became more widely known for her role in  Rabbit Proof Fence and Brand Nue Dae.

Her beautiful energy will be missed!

    Vale Ningali.
    So correct Roel, a wonderful person, a brilliant actor. Ningali was a leader in breaking into the theatrical world for Indigenous talent and she could, and did, play any role.
    She will be missed.
