Today's birthday, February 16: Australian actress Tammy MacIntosh (1970 - ).

Tammy MacIntosh has starred in a string of much-loved Australian television series, most notably as Kaz Proctor in the prison drama Wentworth and as Dr Charlotte Beaumont in All Saints.

MacIntosh was born in Perth in 1970 and attended three different Perth high schools.

She graduated from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, a division of Edith Cowan University.

MacIntosh began her career as a reporter for a children's show C'mon Kids in South Australia in the late 80s.

In 1989 she shifted to acting, taking on the role of Annie Rogers in The Flying Doctors.

Since then she has appeared in several well-known Australian television series, including Something in the Air, Stingers, McLeod's Daughters, and Police Rescue.

In 2000 MacIntosh moved away from television drama to play alien Jool on the science fiction series Farscape. She made her first appearance in the third season and remained on the show for a year.

In 2002, she played the main character in the first season of the BAFTA Award-winning BBC show, Jeopardy.

That same year MacIntosh was cast in the medical drama All Saints. She was initially contracted for six weeks but soon became one of the show's longest-running cast members.

After All Saints wrapped in 2009, she took on recurring roles on Nine's Sea Patrol and in the ABC's internationally-renowned crime drama Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries.

In 2015 MacIntosh joined the cast of the award-winning prison drama Wentworth, alongside actresses Pia Miranda and Libby Tanner. The Foxtel series is now in its sixth season.

Outside of television, her credits include the Melbourne Theatre Company's Shark Fin Soup, the Sydney Theatre Company's Private Lies, and the 2011 films A Heartbeat Away and Sleeping Beauty.

MacIntosh and husband Mark Yeats welcomed a son, Benjamin, in 2006. They live in Sydney.
