When people fall in love, they tend to retreat into their own world – subsisting on takeaway and endorphins – until reality pulls them back. It was no different for American actor Brian Donovan and his Australian girlfriend Tempany Deckert, a playwright and former Home and Away star.
But when Brian's sister Kelly came to visit, things changed.
The siblings spent every day together, photographing their favourite stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and chasing the Bee Gees for autographs. At night, they'd cuddle on the couch.
"I'm supposed to be your other half," Tempany complained to Brian, "but there's already a half there."
