Magda Szubanski’s Goddaughter Dressed Up As Sharon From ‘Kath & Kim’


Long before she was one of the country’s biggest advocates for LGBTI rights, beloved comedian Magda Szubanski was gracing our screens on iconic Australian TV series, Kath & Kim.

As any Aussie will remember, Magda’s character on the show, Sharon Strzelecki, was a netball and cricket-obsessed, injury-prone woman with a pudding-bowl haircut and who once had a really bad pash-rash.

To celebrate Magda’s “mock funeral” at this year’s Melbourne Writers Festival, her goddaughter, Betty Campbell, dressed up as a mini Sharon – and the results are incredible. 

In the video posted to Instagram, the daughter of singer and television host David Campbell and theatre producer Lisa Campbell can be heard saying: “It’s noiceeee, it’s unusual,” while wearing Sharon’s netball outfit. 

“I give you the future #Sharon Strzelecki… Ms Betty Campbell!!! my goddaughter and, I’ll think you’ll agree, a total Mini Me,” Madga captioned the post.

“Her mum and Dad – @davidcampbell73 @lisaluckiest – transformed her for a video presentation at my mock funeral for @melbwritersfest#MWF18 last night. Should any misfortune befall me (god forbid) I’m sure young Ms Campbell will step into my runners most capably.”

Too cute!
