Do you remember Megan Gale? The beautiful Australian model became one of the most popular faces on TV in the late 90s and early 2000s, thanks to an unforgettable commercial.

What is she doing now?

She has been living away from the spotlight for years; but what has she been up to? In this gallery we take a look at her career and try to find out what she is doing today.

The commercial she appeared in

The year was 1999 when this Australian model, 180 cm tall, made her way into the world of fashion. She was Megan Gale, a star at the time, thanks to a commercial for a well-known mobile phone company.

A big success

Born in Perth, Australia, on August 7, 1975, Megan Gale was only 24 years old at the time of her great success. Thanks to her charm and sensuality she became a real sex symbol.

Face of a phone company

Following her success, Omnitel (now Vodafone) continued to shoot TV commercials starring the beautiful Megan.

Very popular in Italy

Megan became so popular in Europe, specifically in Italy, that she was invited to host the Sanremo Festival in 2001. It's the yearly event where Italians choose their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Megan on Christmas vacation

Megan Gale also appeared on the big screen in the Italian movie 'Vacanze di Natale 2000' ('Christmas Vacation 2000').

Her filmography

Other Italian films starring Megan Gale include 'Body Guards' ('Guardie del Corpo,' 2000) and 'Bewitched by the Moon' ('Stregati dalla luna,' 2001). The international public got to know her acting skills with 'I love you too' (2010) and 'Mad Max: Fury Road' (2015).

Away from the spotlight

Despite the unprecedented success, Megan gradually disappeared from the spotlight. She had a few years of catwalks, TV, and cinema under her belt, but then it all seemed to end.

What is she doing now?

So what really happened to the talented and beautiful Megan Gale?

Mother of two children

Today Megan Gale lives happily with her partner, football player Shaun Hampson, who is over 10 years younger than her. The two live in Australia and have two children, River Alan Thomas (born in May 2014), and Rosie May Dee (born in October 2017).

Difficulties in the past years

Unfortunately, her family life was not all plain sailing. She had some very difficult moments over the years. In fact, between the birth of her son and daughter, the former model and actress reportedly had a painful miscarriage in 2016.

Deaths in the family

Furthermore, close relatives have passed away in recent years. Both her father and father-in-law died of cancer. And that wasn't the only tragic event for Megan Gale.

The disappearance of her brother

In August 2020, the body of Megan's brother Jason Gale, was found lifeless. The 49-year-old man had disappeared one day, and they hadn't heard from him for about a week until his body was found.

Social silence

In the months that followed, the former model stayed away from social media because of the trauma she had suffered. Megan now has the support of the family members who remained: her mother, her older brother, and her own husband and children.

What is Megan Gale doing today?

Today Megan Gale lives in Melbourne, Australia. She's a mom and runs a holiday residence. It's not the first step she's made into the world of business.

Career as an entrepreneur

Megan Gale used to lead a children's cosmetics company, The Mindful Life, which also promoted the physical and mental well-being of children. However, following the tragic death of her brother, Megan Gale decided to leave that position behind and devote herself more to her family and smaller commercial endeavours. It's understandable.
