Following the death of this much-loved actor, the Actors Benevolent Fund of NSW Inc was approached by an anonymous donor who wished to honour her life by setting up a bequest in her name. The donor had, like Victoria, been diagnosed with cancer, but had been ‘set free’ from its toll and felt compelled to make a difference to those who have been less fortunate.

The Actors Benevolent Fund administers this bequest, drawing on the interest derived from an initial sum of $25,000, to make a difference to the lives of performers no longer able to work due to illness, sometimes of a temporary nature, sometimes for the rest of their lives.

Should you wish to make a donation to add to this bequest, you will not only be honouring the life of Victoria, but allowing the Actors Benevolent Fund to sustain the ongoing needs of performers in the future.  Our goal is to be able to continue our support for more performers in distress of a long term nature.

Victoria was a graduate of NIDA and an actress of great strength and grace who won the hearts of her friends, colleagues and audience members lucky enough to spend time with her. She worked across all media, but may be best remembered for her award winning stage performance in ‘The Goat Or Who Is Sylvia?’  and her screen performances in ‘Celia’, ‘Eden’s Lost’, ‘Wildside’ and ‘Dirtwater Dynasty’.

Friends and family of Victoria knew her as the ‘first person to turn to when in need’. It is hoped that this bequest may honour her life into the future.

VICTORIA Constance Mary LONGLEY, 24.09.1960 – 29.08.2010.
