Australian Actress Davini Malcolm, was borne Lindy McConchie and later worked under her married surname Lindy Wallis. She and her husband, photographer Richard Wallis had a son Satchi borne in 1992.
She received her name Davini from the Spiritual Teacher Osho in 1994 and decided to use this name all of the time, changing it legally. After divorcing photographer Richard Wallis, she later married Peter Malcolm, Antarctic Expedition Leader & Motivational Speaker. They had 3 children together Zak (1996) and twins Lachlan & Gabriella (2001). Sadly Peter passed away in 2009 after a short & brave battle with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Davini raised Satchi, Zak, Lachy & Gabi on her own for a few years later marrying Scott Sommerville in 2014 at home with their kids as the wedding party. Together they raise their 6 children happily with Scott's children Ben (1998) and Nicola (2000) joining the big crazy family. It's a house full of teenagers and early 20 somethings and it works!
