“I first created that character in 1995, might have been 1994 even, and to think that Sharon still [resonatess] it’s a beautiful thing," she said.
"You always hope that might happen, but longevity is… you can never know. I’m absolutely thrilled and very moved actually.”
And when asked if she knew anything about a revival, she played coy: "If I did I couldn't possibly tell you. If I did, I'd have to kill you and your publishers and everyone else. It would be a blood bath!"
With talk of the cast coming together for some kind of reunion, it begs with question; what are they all up to today?
Kath And Kim stars: Then and now
Kim Craig: Gina Riley
Kimmy, look at moi! After making herself a household name in Kath & Kim, Gina made a few appearances in mini-series The Beautiful Lie and How To Life before deciding to step away from the spotlight. But that didn't stop fans from noticing that she started to resemble a different character from the show in the 2020s, when she embraced her natural grey hair.
Kath Day-Knight: Jane Turner
She was iconic for smoking ciggies out the kitchen window wearing rubber gloves, so where is this foxy lady now? After starring as Kath, Jane went on to appear in a number of big-name local shows like Open Slather (alongside co-stars Gina and Magda), Rake and most recently Parlement.
A source told Woman's Day that even 20 years after the first episode of Kath & Kim aired, jane still spends plenty of time with the cast. "They still love catching up and talking about the skits they would do if they could still get away with them," they said.
Sharon Strzeleki: Magda Szubanski
Who didn't love sports-obsessed and unlucky in love Sharon? Even Magda still adores the character more than 20 years after creating her, admitting she never realised how mcuh "longevity" the character would have in Aussie culture.
Kel Knight: Glenn Robbins
He swept Kath off her feet as foxy butcher Kel, but in the real world Glenn has been hard at work acting since the show wrapped. He starred in True Story with Hamish & Andy and Upper Middle Bogan before reprising one of his most iconic roles in 2018 - but it wasn't as Kel.
Glenn is also famous for his portrayal of bush buffoon Russell Coight from Russell Coight's All Aussie Adventures, which originally ran at the same time as Kath & Kim. The show wrapped in 2004 but was brought back for a modern revival in 2018, much to the delight of fans.
Brett Craig: Peter Rowsthorn
Poor Brett. His hair may be gone, but Peter's still hilarious and has been making Aussies laugh long after his time on Kath & Kim ended. In the years since he's taken roles in several small-scale shows, theatre productions and movies and even landed a gig in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
