The role was shared between a number of actors, including Kylie Minogue who played an older Epponnee, but Zara spent three months on set of the hit show back in the day, with her mother. 

While she doesn’t remember much, Zara said she’s proud of her work and would also love to be a part of a potential reboot.

‘I’d be so eager to do a reboot of the show, I think that would be really cool,’ Zara said.

‘I never try to brag or impress people, but it is funny to talk about it.’

She added: ‘It’s really special, not a lot of people have something like that and I think I am quite lucky.’

Zara is finishing her last year in high school and has aspirations to go into the medical field.  

In 2020, Zara shared a clip of herself on TikTok saying she played Epponnee-Rae on the series, but soon deleted it after the clip blew up.
