Could a Photo of her be included and a lengthier section too.


Does anyone know why she speaks with an Australian accent, given that she didn't move to Australia until she was about 30?

To me it sounds like she uses Cultivated Australian English pronunciation for her acting and presenting roles. This accent is not too far removed from the Received Pronunciation accent she presumably was trained in at London's Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and fits the characters she usually plays: strict, assertive, upper-class women. It was also the accent favoured by Australian actors of her era and was pretty common up to the late 1980s, and would presumably make her more employable (Working in Australia, she wouldn't score too many roles if she went about taking in her native Scouse accent at auditions, etc).

Fair use rationale for Image:MoragBellingham.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:MoragBellingham.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

"Home and Away" section[edit]

The "Home and Away" section of the article is confusing. Some dates are missing, present and past tense are mixed in ways that don't appear to make sense, it doesn't distinguish properly between actress and the character, and no sources are cited. snigbrook (talk) 16:59, 22 January 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
