This is a web community and news resource for fans of this brilliant young Australian actress and artist. Whether you're a long-time fan of her work or just discovering her, we have the information about what she's done, and what she's doing, that you're looking for. Browse through our pages and you'll see why we feel Rhiana is one of the most gifted actresses to emerge in a very long time, and that she's destined for great things to come.
Most of our pages are now online. We still have a few image galleries and filmography pages to bring up, but everything else is in place. Make sure you keep checking back, though, because we're constantly finding new things to add to our pages.
We’ve noticed that some people are still accessing our site via our Dreamhost mirror. That was something that we set up when we were building the site on Dreamhost prior to cutting off services with our old webhoster, and it appears that some of you bookmarked pages with the mirror’s address rather than the regular site address. We’re planning on discontinuing the mirror in the near future, so in a few weeks those addresses won’t work anymore.
Take a moment to check and see if you’re coming in via rhiana-griffith.com, or rhiana-griffith.dreamhosters.com — if you’re using a bookmark or link with the second version, now’s the time to change it to the first. Our webmistress plans to delete the mirror on September 1, so you have a month and a half to make any changes you need to. Thanks!
If you’re like many of us, you’ve been half a world away from our leading lady’s art shows, and most of the works — if you could even learn about them in time — were probably out of your price range. So you had to make do with wistfully admiring them and wishing if only there were some way they could magically be on your walls. Well, Rhiana’s been busy lately, and one of her latest ventures is something that might just result in you having your very own, and very personal work of Rhiana art in your home at last!
Check out FLYBABY art, which just went live! In one of the best baby-art ideas since Anne Geddes did her Down in the Garden collections, Rhiana has launched a site where she is taking commissions to turn your baby pictures (and pet pictures, and expecting-mum pictures!) into fantasy portraits that you can hang on your wall, wear on a shirt, and use in a variety of other really cool ways.
And, as we said, this is something you can commission for yourself!
So take a look around the site and check out Rhiana’s designs in the gallery — and if you can’t see her in Poppy’s face, we’ll be amazed — and give a little thought to what kind of picture you might want to commission. Do you have a child whose inner dragon-fighter needs to be revealed? A baby whose secret identity as queen of the butterflies should be spotlit? Or a beloved pet who needs to return to watch over you as an angel above your mantle? The possibilities are endless!
If you’ve always wanted a better look at Rhiana’s art, and you’ve missed out on seeing her different collections when various Aussie galleries had them online, now you can catch up! Our leading lady has her own site for her artworks now, and is it ever gorgeous! You have to check it out!
It’s been very quiet on the RGFC for quite a while, in part because our webmistress went back to college but also because things have been pretty quiet in terms of Rhiana news. Those of us who have been rooting for her have been wondering why that might be, but now our question has been answered! Intrepid co-admin Shalimar found a wonderful article that went up just about a month and a half ago… and our leading lady has been raising her first child!
From the sound of it, we’ve missed out on a number of commercials that Rhiana’s appeared in, and hopefully at some point we can find a way to snag some of them for her fans outside of Australia to see. At the moment, it looks like Rhiana is concentrating on the artistic portion of her career since she can do it in conjunction with raising her baby. But it also sounds like she intends to keep going with her acting career as well, so we’ll see her back on our screens again in the future.
In the meantime, congratulations and best wishes, Rhiana, from all of us at the RGFC!
In Sydney this coming weekend? Then it’s your chance to meet Rhiana! Several of her new paintings are on display in her latest show, In the Night Garden. The show has actually been running for the last four days or so (its opening was on the 4th), but the real prize is the Meet the Artist event this weekend! Rhiana will be at the gallery between 2 and 4 pm on Saturday, August 14.
Click here to go to the gallery’s website (her exhibit is currently the sixth down on the page) and click here to take a look at some of the awesome paintings in the show!
It’s our favorite time of year again, Rhiana’s birthday! And we have a lot to celebrate this year, with Rhiana’s new short film making the rounds and our girl starring in the latest Gloria Jean’s coffee ad running in Australia! We’re very sure that even more exciting things are on the horizon as well, and we’re looking forward to seeing all of them as they happen. So raise your glasses, everybody!
We have wonderful news! The trailer for “Julia,” Rhiana’s new short film, is online and viewable! Director Luca De Simone has posted it on the Vimeo channel of the International Film School of Sydney. And as you’ll see, Rhiana’s in top form!

Thank you to Kerri, who spotted this! Rhiana’s starring in the newest Gloria Jean’s coffee ad! You can see it here, and we hope to have some screencaps up in the next day or two!
We’ve just received fantastic news from film director Luca De Simone — he’s just made a short film called Julia, featuring our girl! He’s sent us some lovely stills from the film, which are below…
But we also got another amazing piece of news: we’ll be able to post the trailer for the film in the very near future! Keep an eye right here, and on our message board, for more information as it becomes available! We’re very excited!
Welcome to the new space for the Rhiana Griffith Fan Club, with its new design! We’ve upgraded all of our programs, kicked out a bunch of annoying hacker-types who apparently thought they were clever, and now we’re settling in on our new, improved space! We’re still going to be tweaking the site design over the next few weeks, so if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them! Let us know if you spot any broken links, or if there are any files or pages that you particularly remember but can no longer find. Everything should be intact, but you never know. Enjoy!
We’re in the middle of upgrading a few things, in preparation for our belated Birthday surprise, and the message board will be down for a day or so. We apologize for any inconvenience. It’s almost time for that surprise, and we’re really looking forward to showing it off!
Woo hoo! It’s Rhiana’s 23rd Birthday today! We’re sorry that there isn’t a birthday banner up — yet — but a mixture of technical difficulties (My computer sucks! — Ardath) and heavy academic load this semester have delayed it… slightly! We hope to have it up — along with some other fun surprises — by the weekend! In the meantime, let’s all raise our glasses to our girl!
It’s that wonderful time of year again! Today, Rhiana turns 22! This should be a very exciting year for our girl, and we’re all looking forward to many brilliant things to come. Happy Birthday, Rhiana, from all of us at the RGFC!
Rhiana’s in America! Word is that she’s in Los Angeles right now, doing auditions and meetings for the 2007 Pilot Season and movies. We’re hoping we’ll have some great news to report soon! In the meantime, we’ve been sent a new publicity still! This is Rhiana’s gorgeous new head shot!
Are those the most beautiful eyes in Hollywood or what?
We have a lovely new image of Rhiana, thanks to Sydney’s Daily Telegraph gallery. The Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art had its 15th Birthday Party on November 9, 2006, launching its 2007 season, and Rhiana was one of the celebrity attendees snapped by photographers! It’s a lovely shot of our girl, whose own exhibition, Le Cirque du Perdu, has now completed its run in the Tighes Hill Gallery and the Gaffa Gallery.
We love this new image!
