The actor was critically injured in the New South Wales crash, which killed her parents Lars, 69, and Vivian, 60.

On its website, the show said: "Goodbye lovely Jess".

On Wednesday they were farewelled at a moving funeral ceremony at St Mary's Catholic Church at Concord in Sydney's west.

Paul Ponticello, Vivian's brother, gave a eulogy at the funeral.

While the actress is best known for her appearance in long-running soap Home And Away, she enjoyed minor roles in Aussie dramas Underbelly: Badness and Tricky Business.

Police believe the crash occurred when a large vehicle crossed the centre line and crashed head on with the Falkholt family's auto.

"Everything that the community expects us to do to keep them safe has not worked in this instance that's, to be brutally honest and frank, the situation we're all facing", she told 2GB Radio on Friday.

He said Mr Falkholt had always been a careful driver and he would often joke about having to add on time to any trip, which he called the 'Lars factor'. You will always be remembered and in our hearts forever.

Harmony was the last movie Jessica filmed before the horror crash last month.
