Madeleine West Early life and education
Melanie Ann Weston spent her early childhood in Woodend. She went to school at Woodend Primary School and transferred eight high schools because her family followed her stepfather’s engineering work around the country.

In 1992, she entered the New South Wales Talented Child Drama Ensemble and later studied at Swinburne University of Technology, Tamworth Conservatorium of Music, and Riverina Drama Ensemble
Madeleine West Husband, Children
West has been in a relationship with Shannon Bennett, a restaurateur, as from 2005. The couple has six children together; Phoenix (born December 2005), Hendrix (born April 2008), Xascha (born July 2010), Xanthe (born 2012) and twins, Xalia, and Margaux (2014). West commented that the Xs in the names did not start out as intentional.
West addressed the speculation about their marriage in an interview with Stellar earlier in September 2018.
“We’re not currently together. We’re striving to reconnect as friends and parents, but who knows what the future holds? As a family we’ll continue to split our time between Melbourne and Byron Bay,” she told the publication.
In July 2002, West was hit by a bus in Sydney. The actress was also robbed while she was unconscious. She needed reconstructive plastic surgery and had to be written out of Neighbours but returned to the show a month later.
Madeleine West take on Open Relationships
Madeleine West may play a woman in an open relationship on her new show, but that doesn’t mean she’s drawing on any real-life experience. Madeleine appeared on KIIS 1065’s Kyle & Jackie O Show on 19th September 2018 to talk about her role as a WAG (wife and girlfriend) on the new drama Playing For Keeps. Sandilands asked if West would be able to bring this into her real life.
“Nup,” she said with a laugh. “Absolutely could not do that.” She then reasoned, “I think it could work for a period, but at some stage, S-H-I-T is going to hit the fan.”
