The Sullivans cast confused and upset after seeing ‘ghoulish’ co-star Susan Hannaford

According to her The Sullivans co-stars, Susan Hannaford, 65, has dramatically changed in appearance – but her lifestyle remains the same.

After watching her recent interview on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night, they were ‘confused and upset’ over the ‘ghoulish’ transformation of the girl they knew as little Kitty Sullivan.

Speaking to The Herald Sun on Saturday, co-stars including Lorraine Bayly (Grace Sullivan) and Steven Tandy (Tom Sullivan) voiced their concerns.

‘I couldn’t believe it’: The Sullivans cast members are ‘confused and upset’ after seeing co-star Susan Hannaford, 65, is now a ‘ghoulish, peroxide-haired granny’… as they share stories of her unpredictable behaviour 

Many of her former colleagues had less than fond memories of the once beloved pig-tailed 23-year-old, who played a teenager on the show.

During her interview with Sunday Night presenter Matt Doran, she appeared unrecognisable, sporting peroxide-blonde hair and tiny hot pants.

After watching the tense conversation, Lorraine told News Corp she was ‘confused and upset’ after seeing the woman Susan had become.

Cast members told stories of Susan arriving on set after nights of partying and occasionally boasting about how she was a ‘movie star’ – despite The Sullivans being the only role she ever played.

Lorraine described her behaviour as a typical case of fame going to someone’s head, comprising of small fibs such as claiming to have nabbed lucrative film and TV roles.

Steven added that he’d been in conversation with Lorraine after the Sunday Night interview aired, with the pair describing both her looks and lifestyle as ‘ghoulish’.

‘I don’t want to denigrate her for the way she looks but I just couldn’t believe it was the same person,’ Steven admitted.

He had last seen Susan two decades ago over dinner – and the actor’s comments regarding her looks imply she has changed drastically since then. 

It has previously been reported that the former actress left Australia in 2013 when her abandoned Sydney home was sold by the Commonwealth Bank.

Somehow, Susan managed to find herself living in one of California’s most well-heeled neighbourhoods, filled with Hollywood stars.

After several odd replies during Sunday Night’s bizarre interview, Matt asked: ‘Do you have difficulty Susan, with telling the truth?’

Susan snapped back: ‘Do you have difficulty with your IQ?’

While Lorraine and Steven were shocked, Michael Caton (Uncle Harry on The Sullivans, Darryl Kerrigan on The Castle), appeared less surprised.

‘I always found Susan to be a very sad person and she’s even sadder now,’ he said.
