JANE VALLIS

The reason why i made this Site for Jane is because there is only a little information about this beautiful young woman. Jane and Anne Lambert are my absolute favorite Characters in "Picnic at Hanging Rock".

Jane Vallis was born on October 03, 1956 in Australia as Jane Winifred Vallis. Jane`s Father was Laurence Irvin Vallis, her mother was Jean Gertrude Montrose and her sister was Jennifer Robin Vallis. Her first role was in Peter Weir`s Movie "Picnic at Hanging Rock". When 18 years old Jane arrived on the Picnic Set to play the enigmatic Marion, who dissapears forever with Miranda that fateful day on Hanging Rock, she was immediately popular. "Once we started shooting we became very good friends," says Jenny Lovell, who played Blanche. After "Picnic at Hanging Rock", Jane starred in the TV Series "The Lost Islands" in the role of Anna. Apart from the "Picnic" Movie and the TV Series "The Lost Islands", Jane has not played in any other Movies or TV Series. Many years later she was a Tour Guide at Sydney Opera House. In 1989, when Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy, her castmates took the news hard. "It was incredibly difficult," says Jenny Lovell. Jane meet her husband Colin Budd at the Sydney Opera House and appeared in pantos there even while undergoing chemotheraphy. Jane married Colin on 01 August 1989 in Marricksville, New South Wales, Australia.

She went into remission for a year but the cancer returned. When Jane realised she would not recover, she moved with Budd to her sister`s house in Erskineville, Sydney, to die among friends. Jane died on 27 September 1993 in Marricksville, a week before her 38th birthday. She was 36 years old. Her ashes were scattered in Sydney Harbour.

Victoria Kitanov, a friend of Jane sayd: "It’s ironic that Jane herself has virtually vanished without trace since her death. Over the years Jane has haunted me – in her lovely, gentle way – placing small mementos in my path: a small fragrant candle in heart-shaped tin on which she had pasted a cupid, a picture of James Dean (whom she adored!), a home-made birthday card… reminding me she is still around & that all is forgiven. She was a dear friend with an extraordinary gift of making anyone feel as though they were the most important person in her life."
