She also starred in the supernatural thriller Harmony, set to be released in 2018.
NSW Police Chief Inspector Phil Brooks said the holidays were ‘meant to be a time of happiness’ but ‘sadly for many this has resulted in tragedy’.
Police said the crash was caused by one car being on the wrong side of the road, according to the ABC.
They visited the family’s home in Ryde, north-west of Sydney but after finding no-one there tracked down extended family members.
The NSW state road toll is now at 21, and police are warning drivers about ‘fatigue and complacency’ while behind the wheel.
Chief Inspector Brooks said complacency was primarily to blame for the deaths.
