Alison Brahe Daddo

About

Once a household name, Alison Brahe Daddo was one of Australia’s most recognised - and loved - faces after bursting onto the modelling scene at the age of sixteen.

Working with brands such as Coca Cola, Portmans, Jacquie E and Brian Rochford, Alison regularly graced the covers of magazines Cosmopolitan, Cleo and Dolly. In 1992, she was on the cover of Dolly seven times, and in Cleo, she was voted among the “Top Most Influential Women of the Century” by its readers.

In the 90’s Alison hosted Here’s Humphrey and Guess What?, and in 1992, she moved to Los Angeles with her husband Cameron Daddo, where she worked as a screenwriter and producer and secured a degree from UCLA in Early Childhood.

Today, Alison is a screenwriter, producer (US series Polly G), podcaster and teacher. She is currently writing several feature film scripts whilst continuing to teach and co-host a podcast Separate Bathrooms with Cameron.

She returned to Sydney in 2016 where she lives with Cameron and their three children.

Alison is now recounting her years as a model, surviving sexual abuse and body confidence and now facing the new and often confronting experience of menopause.

In her book Queen Menopause, Alison openly talks about what going through menopause is like and even better what it feels like to come out the other side. Queen Menopause is the book Alison wishes she had when she was approaching menopause – so she could be more prepared for what was coming, embrace the process and feel supported.
