Isidingo star expected to pull through after crash February 11, 2008

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:00 pm

Ashley CallieSupport for popular Isidingo actress Ashley Callie from her fans, friends and colleagues has kept the star performer’s family encouraged that she will recover soon.

By late on Sunday, Callie’s condition was said to be stable after undergoing surgery for severe head injuries she sustained when her car collided with another on Friday night.

Callie, 32, who plays the character Lee in the SABC soapie, was earlier reported to have been in a critical condition. The surgery allowed doctors to alleviate the pressure on her brain.

Callie’s sister Lauren said the actress was “stable and doing well” and doctors were optimistic she would pull through.

“Her injuries are very severe, and because of her condition, she is sedated. But she is stable, which is very positive. We are looking forward to her making a speedy recovery,” said Lauren, who requested The Star not to name the hospital where the actress is recovering.
Isidingo’s executive producer, Phumla Hopa, said they remained confident that Callie’s strength would help her to overcome her condition.

Meanwhile, the three occupants of the Renault that collided head-on with Callie’s Smart Car were also in a stable condition after undergoing surgery on Saturday.

Netcare Milpark Hospital spokesperson Amelda Swartz said she was hopeful they would all be released from ICU on Monday.

According to Joburg metro police spokesperson Superintendent Wayne Minnaar, the accident took place at the corner of 4th Avenue and Tana Road in Emmarentia, Joburg, at about 10.30pm on Friday.

“We are not sure what the exact cause of the accident was, but police are investigating,” Minnaar said.

Alet Says:

Saturday / 15 Febr 2008. The first day in the lives of all who knew her, has passed without Ashley…. what a saddening thought. Watching the sun rise this morning I was amazed that, despite this immense loss and tragedy, life simply goes on. The sun will always rise again, no matter what happened to us today.
I can’t even try to imagine how the Callie family and all Ashley’s friends must feel, but I wish you strengh, from the bottom of my heart. It wont be easy, healing seems impossible right now, but lets celebrate the life of this beautifull, special and unforgettable lady, Ashley Calley. Lee, I will miss you too. Ashley, may you rest in peace………

 
Minette Says:

To all the dear members of the cast of Isidingo – I feel indescribably sad, also on your behalf, at the loss of Ashley. Her brilliant smile and gentle nature is forever branded in my mind. God will give you comfort.

 
KERRY Says:

The right words dont seem to come to mind to express what a great loss Ashley Callies’ passing is. An accident like this just reminds us how precious life is and how many lives are lost in such a tragic way in our country and that we should all be mindful of our and other drivers safety when out on the roads.

 
Welile Peter Says:

MY YOUR DEAR SOUL REST IN PEACE,MYSELF AND MY WIFE WE ARE STILL YOUR FAN EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE GONE.IT SADLY HURT WHEN YOU LOSE SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE,ASHELLY WE WILL GREATLY MISS YOU.

 
Pradeep Sooryalall Says:

May her soul rest in peace,
And perpetual light shine upon her.

They who think that you are gone,
Because no more your face they see,
Are wrong, for in our hearts you live
And always will in memory.

And while she lies in peaceful sleep,
Her memory we shall always keep.

Just when your life was brightest,
Just when your years were best,
You were called from this world of sorrow
To a home of eternal rest.

ada-flo Says:

You made me watch Isidingo with keen interest. I was even praying that Lee and Rajesh come together again, which is the best part I always love to watch, and this happened – your leaving us.
I can’t get over this news, at least not in the nearest future, you were my best actress, my darling, my screen queen, the one that makes me glued to my tv, unforgetable, actress of hearts, I could go on you know. But what can I do, only to keep having you live in my heart everyday, though with htears. But am happy that you left a good footprint, a legacy behind. I can’t come to terms with this misfortune Rest in peace.

 
Di Says:

I feel the same as Ada-flo. I also watched the show to see Lee and always hoped Rajesh and her would get back together. It was always lovely to see the two of them together chatting and laughing.
My thoughts are with your family,partner, cast and crew and all her friends yesterday and today and may you rest in peace.

 
Mmaseala Says:

My deepest sympathy to the Callie family for loosing such a gifted, beautiful and talented daughter and actress. I am a religious fan of Isidingo, my week days is not complete without watching this insightful soapie of mzansi. “Lee” was an inspiration to my daughter, she always told me that when she grows up she would love to dress like Ashley whe she goes to work. Ashley you are gone from this world, but you will live forever in our hearts. May your soul rest in Peace!

 
NWASH Says:

I thought she will be fine… cuz she is a survivor!!!!!!

 
patrick tlhapi Says:

Glynis Says:

Ashley Callie was the epitomy of grace, style and beauty – a true Lady! And as her family have requested that donations be made to the SPCA, she was obviously a warm-hearted animal lover as well.Well I, for one, have made my donation “In Memory of Ashley Callie” to the East London SPCA as they do fantastic work in our community. Condolences to the family and friends of Ashley.I will miss her and remember her with love and affection.

bean Says:

it’s the first time in a long long time that it seems as if god has made a mistake.
the world is stuck without you, things will just never be the same. know you changed us, and that you are dearly loved, beyond the grave, as death has died and you have been taken up in life that never ends.
to ashley’s family, most expecially, her mom and dad, lauren and john – this person who we love so, still, was a sound we had never heard before and a colour we had never seen. maybe thats because she was not from here. she is home now. we think of ashley and we think of you. your loss is our loss. my goodness – the country si weeping

Lauretta Pambo Says:

This is massage is mainly to ashley’s family, close frinds and mainly those who spend close time with her back at the studios. A thought hit me strongly yesterday when was watching isidingo, it reminded me of a afternoon her death was announced i asked my self as a simple fen if i felt that kind of shock how much more with all of you, whoe were close to her.
I stand here to tell you to be courraged i might not fully understand wot u going through but i do understand one thing that ur daugther sir, mem, ur sister, ur close friend ashley was such an inspiration to many in the land of living. U will be suprice how much hope she left behind, on and off camere she kept the inspiration, me persoonally as a fan i will cry no more on her loss but rejoice of wot she left behind inspiration. when i focuss on that is just the same as she lives. The memorry of her will keep u strong she will forever live inside ur own hearts , keep the good memories to keep u going…

 
Funeka Ngcobo Says:

I got deeply hurt by Ashley’s passing on but have decided to let her go, set her free because she was a free spirit and holding on to her in sorrow will constantly make her look back and feel the pain she has left behind on earth yet that was not what she represented whilst alive. We need to set her free and know that though we may not see her, she is still around us in spirit. All we have to do is log on to this website and remember our princess of elegance. I personally will never forget her.

 
vanessa Says:

I loved her so so much and her memory is still with me. On Friday the 2nd of April I gave birth to my beautiful first born son and I named him after her. Love u always Ashley
