Everlyn was brought to the attention of Phillip Noyce by a friend of her mothers, who met Noyce and casting director Christine King at a guesthouse in Broome. Everlyn is not sure what she wants to do with her life but added that "I want to get married and have kids but not till I am much older. I want to have a car and a house first and want to make sure that everything is ready".
Everlyn lives with her family in the Djarindjin Community near Lombardina on the Western Coast of Australia and attends the local school. In her spare time Everlyn enjoys fishing, crabbing, and after a big storm, hunting for turtles. Camping trips with her family are another favourite past time.
Everlyn's mother GLENYS SAMPI works with the people of the Djarindjin Community and has raised Everlyn, three older brothers and a younger sister.
Glenys is part of Australia's Stolen Generations. When she was 4 years old she was taken away from her mother to a mission in Lombardina in North Western Australia. Glenys was brought up by Nuns and by the elder Aboriginal girls in the mission who looked after her. Glenys was reunited with her mother 10 years later after her mother had spent many months searching for her. Glenys still lives in Lombardina today.
