It's one of the most iconic ads Natural Confectionery has ever done - when an adorable little blonde girl begged her father not to chop a dinosaur-shaped lolly in half.

Hitting our screens in 2005, we will all remember her catchphrase: "Don't chop the dinosaur, Daddy!"

But where is the cutie now?

Joanna Hunt-Prokhovnik was just 10 when she appeared in the popular advert - which marked her first professional work as an actor.

Following the ad's release, she went on to appear in the 2005 film Three Dollars and the 2006 film Irresistible alongside Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill and Emily Blunt.

However, the 27-year-old decided to give up acting and has now taken a more spiritual path studying integral energetics - which is a form of stress-reduction therapy.

According to her LinkedIn profile, the Melbourne-based student has also worked in real estate, as well as being a volunteer at Life Saving Victoria.
