Simone is best known for her role as "Debbie Kelly" in the Australian sitcom Hey Dad!. Her first acting roles were in children's television series produced for the (Australian) ABC government broadcasting network. Since then she has had guest roles in many drama series, as well as some film roles, most notably as a rape victim in Shame. Her last major role was as "Laura Harris" (and "Anna Dodwell") in the now-axed Australian late night drama series Pacific Drive. In 1998 she gave birth to a baby boy "Tane" and is currently doing casual acting while she raises her child.
