Australian Model & TV Star Annalise Braakensiek Found Dead In Sydney Home

Australian model and Home and Away actress Annalise Braakensiek has been found dead at her home in Sydney.

Braakensiek began her career as a model and covergirl before taking on acting roles.

Her death is not considered to be suspicious, but authorities are conducting a post-mortem investigation to ascertain the cause of her death. "My biggest challenge was not having my own home (for a year now)!?!"

So when days continued to pass with no Facebook activity, one fan raised his concerns for her welfare writing: "been over a week since you posted, hope you're ok".

Police told nine.com.au officers and an ambulance were called to an apartment in Victoria Street, Potts Point, at about 3.30pm yesterday after reports about her welfare.

Following their separation, Braakensiek bought her Potts Point apartment in November and told the Sun-Herald that she was "moving forward with her life".

"Everything seems to feel twisted and upside down at the moment", she wrote.

In December in an Instagram post, she alluded to a hard year, writing: "Hanging in there by the hair on my chiny chin chin".

Flu Shot More Effective Than Nasal Vaccine
Whether or not children did or did not have the flu vaccine in the previous season did not affect the results. The flu is typically spread between person to person by coughing and sneezing.

"I know it's good for me and ultimately all the pain and hard times are going to be a blessing". She also became an ambassador for R U OK?, a suicide prevention charity that encourages people to ask others about their mental health. "(And in the worst situations)", Braakensiek posted alongside an R U OK image.

On their website she wrote: "I urge you to remember that even the smallest gesture, the simple honest question of R U OK? can quite literally turn a life around. But we will get through this!"

Police found Ms Braakensiek, 46, on Sunday.

Australian actor and fellow Fat Pizza star Rob Shehadi and celebrity agent Max Markson led a series of tributes to the model on social media.

Tribute: 'So sad and gutted to hear about the passing of Annalise Braakensiek, she was an wonderful person, ' Rob tweeted on Monday.

"Kind, compassionate, vivacious, warm and spiritual".

Depression can impact people whose lives may appear easy to outsiders, Braakensiek said. You loved hard and felt everything. "You will be missed".
