Catherine Malia Godbold[4] (23 September 1974 – 4 May 2018)[5] was an Australian actress. She was best known for her role as Deborah Hale Regnery on The Saddle Club and as Meg Bowman in Home and Away.[6] In May 2007, after The Saddle Club was picked up for a third season, Godbold was diagnosed with brain cancer. She had the tumour removed and began chemotherapy.[6] Godbold was the daughter of Australian broadcaster Rosemary Margan, whom she portrayed in the Graham Kennedy biopic The King.[6]

A second brain tumour developed in January 2018, which proved to be terminal. Godbold died on 4 May 2018, aged 43.[7] Godbold's funeral was held on 10 May 2018. Godbold and her mother are buried together at Springvale Botanical Cemetery.[8]
