Australian actress, star of the soap Neighbors, from 1985. Two years later she won a Penguin Award for her role in the show, immensely popular in both Australia and the UK.

As an only child, Anne was obsessed from childhood with inventing characters, dress-up and acting with neighbourhood kids. She started in radio plays before a move to Sydney in 1960 brought her a steady flow of parts. Haddy was married up to 1968, producing two kids from the union.

From October 1970 she appeared regularly in the TV series Dynasty until having major health setbacks. She had a series of serious health difficulties, a massive heart attack on 20 March 1979 that was followed by heart surgery and cancer of the stomach. She renewed her career in 1982 with acclaim for the continuing saga, Sons and Daughters. In early 1983, she returned to the hospital for more heart surgery before resuming her career. She died on 6 June 1999 in Melbourne, Australia of heart and kidney ailments. She was 68.
