Friends and former castmates have paid tribute to Annalise Braakensiek, remembering the late TV personality as a "sweet and bright soul".
Braakensiek, who had recently discussed her battle with depression, was found dead in her Sydney home on Sunday, aged 46.
Paul Fenech, who had cast Braakensiek in his Logie-nominated series Pizza in 2000, called her death a "sad loss".

Reporters were calling about the death of his close friend Linda McCartney, who had died two days earlier at age 56 from breast cancer that had spread to her liver. Devastated by what he heard, Fields reached for the phone. "I called Paul right away," says Fields. "I said, 'Oh, Paul,' and his voice cracked for 10 seconds. We both started to cry. But then I couldn't stop, and he was consoling me. He said, 'Wasn't she great? Wasn't she beautiful? Wasn't she smart and together and wonderful and loving?' " Praising his wife was an occupational as well as an emotional habit for McCartney, 55, who wrote doze
