Falkholt recently filmed the fantasy film, Harmony, which is due to be released in 2018. Onlookers managed to pull both sisters to safety before both cars were engulfed in flames.

Meanwhile, police have also confirmed they are investigating the behaviour of Whitall, the driver of the other vehicle who was also killed - and are struggling to establish whether he was using his phone at the time of the collision.

The sisters were airlifted to hospital where they remain in critical conditions.

They visited the family's home in Ryde, north-west of Sydney but after finding no-one there tracked down extended family members.

Craig Anthony Whitall, 50, also perished in the inferno.
