Sharni's a write-off.
Sharni, 24, who set pulses racing in Aussie show Home & Away, was persuaded by her Irish boyfriend AJ Buckley to join him in Tinseltown to become a movie star.
But her dream of commanding the sort of megabucks salary Dublin boy Buckley gets for his stint on hit crime series CSI: New York have been hurt by the protest, which continues to drag on.
But at least when Sharni isn't queuing for the dole, the perky brunette can spend more time with lover AJ, 31, who had confidently predicted she girlfriend would "kill it" in LA.
Fans will get to see the brunette's emotional soap farewell later this year.
