Stevie (Stephanie) Hall (Simmone Jade Mackinnon)

Stevie, the action boss who needs help with fiddly things like paperwork and accounts, took the reins at Drovers Run when Tess first left for Argentina. During that time, Stevie finally revealed her real connection to daughter Rose and, after many close calls, finally realised she loves Alex.

Stevie is athletic, physically strong and (outwardly at least), emotionally independent. The rodeo circuit in particular suited her love of change and movement, action and excitement.

Morally, she does what she feels is fair and right. She has crossed the line at times but never maliciously. She'll take the advantage (as much for herself as a friend in need) and ignore the law if it seems inflexible or unreasonable. She's the sort who never knocks back a dare, loves a party, and lives for the moment. She isn't held back by the constraints of common sense or thinking through the consequences of things. As a result she frequently finds herself in trouble, but has the audacity and quick wit to extricate herself more often than not.

Stevie's world was turned upside down when Alex became engaged to Fiona. Her rebound relationship with a crop-dusting pilot led to him spraying Drovers Run, destroying its organic status. When Tess, reunited with Nick, decided to move back to Argentina, Stevie was forced to share the farm management duties with new part-owner Jodi.

As Alex's marriage to Fiona crumbled, it seemed likely that Stevie and Alex would finally be together. But a series of misunderstandings drove them apart. Will they ever overcome their differences and become a couple? Or will stubborn pride keep them apart forever?

Simmone Jade Mackinnon
Australian-born Simmone Jade Mackinnon was not contemplating returning home until she learnt that McLeod's Daughters was auditioning for a major female role. Simmone had built a steady body of work in the USA but the opportunity was too good to pass up. Her decision paid off as she won the role.

Simmone has been thrilled with her time on Channel Nine's successful drama. "I'm so excited by this role. I work with a very talented cast and crew, I'm back in Australia with family and friends, and as a horse lover I'm happy to have a role where I am able to ride almost every day," Mackinnon said.

Simmone joined the cast of McLeod's Daughters as Stevie Hall, an old friend of Claire McLeod. Her appearance at Drovers Run initially created tension between Stevie and Tess but after Claire's death, the two formed a deep bond while working together to run the property.

"Stevie is a dream role for me. She is lots of fun to play, more so than anything I've played before. She is casual and relaxed and strong-willed … I love all her qualities," she remarks.

A classically trained dancer, Simmone toured with the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats before an injury forced her to consider acting. Her first major acting role came in 1998 in the Baywatch Down Under special, leading to an invitation to join the core cast on Baywatch. The dual lead role in the television mini-series Attila, filmed in Lithuania, followed. Simmone has just returned to the USA to complete filming her lead role in the independent film Dominique's Game, also starring Corbin Bernsen (LA Law).

Hey Simmone, I have just finished watching Mcleods Daughters series 1-8 for the second time now and i think you have played a marvallous job as Stevie Hall... The storie lines you have had to face are magnificant and thrilling, your character keeps me on my toes because it frustrated the hell out of me when it took so long for you and Alex to be together, i was thinking "come on just hurry up already" and it finally happen then he died... over the past 5-6 years watching you has been wonderful and i have to say that you would be my FAVOURITE character and you pay stevie so well... you are my hero and i hope to see you on television again, but it will never be the same because you are Stevie Hall and NO one else... You are beautiful, talented and Amazing... Just PERFECT... Hope to meet you one day... and as for that Jason Momoa he's not worth you heart... find someone true and faithfull... xoxox P.S you are my HERO....

Hi there Simmone, I might be the biggest kiwi fan of McLeod's Daughters. I just wanted to say what an amazing and inspiring show McLeod's Daughters has been. I wasn't really one to get hooked on any programme, 8 years later, still going strong. It is very sad the show has ended & I wish we could've seen Stevie and Alex live happily ever after - with a little bit of drama of course. I guess I'll have to get my fix on the reruns they (TVNZ) are showing now. Anyway, just wanted to say you and the rest of the cast and crew deserve a standing ovation for your hardwork. Good luck with your future endeavours.
