What are the chances? The moment Rebecca Gibney randomly orders an Uber with the number plate ‘TV STAR’
She’s one of Australian television’s most hardworking actresses, known for her roles in Packed to the Rafters and Halifax f.p.
And on Saturday, Rebecca Gibney found herself recognised in the most random of ways, while on a night out in Sydney with former co-star Hugh Sheridan.
The 55-year-old ordered an Uber, that by chance, had the number plate ‘TV STAR’.

Rebecca re-shared Hugh’s Instagram post to her own feed on Sunday, that saw the pair sitting in front of the Uber and in fits of laughter.
The New Zealand-born actress cut a smart casual figure and beamed for the camera next to Hugh, who wore a T-shirt, jeans and leather jacket ensemble.
‘Just can’t stop laughing that @rebeccagibney_ randomly ordered an Uber and the number plate is TV STAR,’ Hugh, 35, wrote in the caption of his own post.

He then referenced a quote by the late poet and playwright Oscar Wilde: ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars’.
In Rebecca’s post, she captioned the moment ‘about last night’ with a laughing face emoji.
Rebecca became a household name in Australia when she starred as Dr. Jane Halifax in crime series Halifax f.p., from 1994 to 2002.
