1985. Brendan and Chloe are playing in the paddock with a kite, while Molly watches on from a lounge. The screen fades to black as Brendan yells 'Molly!'. 

And, just like that - after a 13 episode arc, Molly is dead of leukaemia. 

Over the years, the episode gathers legendary status in the history of Australian TV, with people wanting to talk about how they felt watching it, where they were and how they never got over it. 

What about the woman at the centre of it? The woman who played the beloved Molly? How did she feel watching it? Did she ever get over it? 

Anne Tenney is one of Australia's most respected actors, and has been in a string of iconic Australian TV and film roles from The Castle to Brides of Christ to Always Greener

Yet to many, she'll always be the tragic and eccentric Molly Jones from ACP. Is it a gift, or a burden? 

Kim and Melanie find out, finally, in this episode of A Country Podcast, as Anne chats to us from her home in Sydney.
