Susan Hannaford was a household name in Australia in the 1970s after she rose to stardom on as Kitty Sullivan on The Sullivans, but fast-forward nearly 40 years and she is almost unrecognisable.

Not only has her signature look dramatically changed, but the former actress is caught up in an strange property scandal where it's alleged the former actress owes almost $4.65 million to the Commonwealth Bank.

During an interview with Sunday Night Susan was seen firing some bizarre shots at her interviewer Matt Doran.

"Do you have difficulties, Susan, with telling the truth?" Matt asked.

Gone are her well known brunette locks and instead she was seen sorting has platinum blonde tresses as she talked about her new life in the US.

She also appeared to have a new style, seen sporting hot pants as she discussed her financial woes that she blamed on the "foreclosure in a recession".

It is alleged Susan also owes $1.5 million to the IRS, but she denied all claims.

It also came to light many of the properties Susan owned were in her mother's name, Norma Parry.

However, the whereabouts of her 96-year-old mother remained a mystery, and when questioned the star became very defensive claiming the interview was "hostile".

Previous reports state Susan's mother passed away in 2009.

"I would not give you the time of day after this interview, because you’ve been very rude," Susan added.

There's only one thing to say about this interview: awkward.
