Kate Fischer: Why I went into hiding

The “missing” model exclusively tells Jade Watkins why she has turned her back on Australia, converted to Judaism and is looking for a hunky Israeli soldier.

With her hair tied back to reveal a face devoid of make-up, and with silver braces on her teeth, former Aussie actress and TV personality Kate Fischer is barely recognisable.

But her shock physical transformation is the least of the changes she has made in her life. She’s converted to Judaism, is now a US citizen and is on the hunt for an Israeli soldier to marry. She has thrown out her sexy party frocks and adopted a much more modest wardrobe, covering up her famous cleavage.

Kate has even changed her name to T’ziporah Malka bat Israel. It’s a huge lifestyle change for the former model with the big hair and plunging necklines, who proudly stripped alongside Elle Macpherson in the risquè 1993 film Sirens.

“I’m a bit older now and learnt the hard way that it’s better to dress more modestly and speak more modestly,” she says.

For the time being, Kate, 36, who was once famously engaged to billionaire James Packer, is embracing her curvier figure, after decades of riding a weight-loss roller-coaster. “I am wearing braces and I figured, you know, I am going to get fat and wear braces,” she laughs.

Fears were raised for Kate earlier this year after she dropped off the celebrity radar, losing touch with friends and family. Even her agents here and in LA conceded they weren’t sure where she was or what she was doing.
