Funeral plans to be released on Saturday February 15, 2008
Staff members at the La Vista Social Club restaurant in Melville are shocked by the sudden passing of owner and award winning South African actress, Ashley Callie.
The family of the Isidingo actress, who died today, and the producers of the popular soap opera will issue a joint statement on funeral plans tomorrow.
Callie died in a Johannesburg hospital from injuries sustained in a car accident in Linden last weekend.
The cast and crew of Isidingo – where Callie played the role of Lee Haines – have had to be assisted by trauma counsellors. Callie’s family has thanked the doctors and nursing staff for their professionalism in caring for her.
