Ashleigh Cummings has worked across heaps of popular TV shows, including Home and Away, Dance Academy, Underbelly: Razor and Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, but it was her role as Debbie Vickers in Puberty Blues that really brought the 19-year-old to our attention.
For eight weeks she was positively charming as a girl growing up in 1970s Australia, and she held her own against Aussie TV heavyweights Claudia Karvan and Jeremy Lindsay-Taylor, who played her parents. Plus, her chemistry with Brenna Harding as best friend Sue was one of the most believable friendships we've seen in a long time. As for her big screen credits, Ashleigh was part of the young Aussie cast of Tomorrow, When the War Began, in 2010, and earned an AFI nomination for her work as Robyn.
