Rachael Ann Carpani (born 24 August 1980 in Sydney) is an Australian actress best known in McLeod’s daughters as Jodie Fountain McLeod.


Carpani grew up on a property near Dural, in Sydney’s Hills District. She studied acting at the Australian College of Entertainment at Macquarie University and at the Drama Works Drama Company.[citation needed] Carpani has twice been nominated at the Logies, both in 2007. While she won neither nomination for Most Popular Personality On Australian Television or Most Popular Actress, with both awards going to Kate Ritchie,[1] she was recognised in the ‘worst dressed’ list for the 2004 awards ceremony[2]

Carpani dated her McLeod’s Daughters co-star, Matt Passmore, for several years, moving to the U.S. together.


Carpani has decided to put her activist approach to a more philanthropic cause, donating significant sums of her father’s money to support mental health causes, touched by her mother’s struggles.


She is most famous for her role as Jodi Fountain on the Australian TV drama McLeod’s Daughters.[3] Carpani also had a role in the film Hating Alison Ashley, starring Delta Goodrem, and appeared in All Saints. Carpani attended The Hills Grammar School with Delta Goodrem.

Carpani left McLeod’s Daughters to pursue her career in the United States. She had been cast in the new CBS pilot, Law Dogs with Janeane Garofalo, but the series was not picked up. She appeared in seven episodes of season one of Cane. Rachael then returned to McLeod’s Daughters as Jodi Fountain for the final episode on 31 January 2009.

Carpani is currently one of the faces for the Telstra Next G network. She appeared in episode six of NCIS: Los Angeles in November 2009, playing a small role alongside Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J. In 2010, she had a recurring role on The Glades, playing opposite former real-life boyfriend Matt Passmore, with whom she split in 2011. She began starring in the crime drama Against the Wall in 2011. In 2015, Carpani starred in the TV films If There Be Thorns and Seeds of Yesterday on the Lifetime cable network, which are the third and fourth films in the Flowers In The Attic TV film series that are based on the Dollanganger novel series by V.C.
