She, along with her son Giannis is in the movie

Most people may not know that Veronica and Giannis have acted in an Australian movie called Dead Europe

Though he had only one line to deliver in the movie “Quiet, please... she is dead gone,” Giannis made his acting debut at the age of 16, and Veronica is also in the scene with him. 

As an Immigrant, finding a job was not easy at the time, so they took the role so that they could make extra money. 

According to the movie Dead Europe director, the main reason Veronica and Giannis ended up acting in the movie was that their life experience matched that of the characters, as his team was hoping to cast a family who could play as refugees.
