Photos from 1983: Doomsday

Israelie born actress and model Odeya Rush is considered to be one of the ANZC's most successful young stars, starring in hit blockbuster films such as Spooktacular Stories* and the more recent sci-fi TV series Outback Galaxy.**


*
The ANZC equivalent of Goosebumps. Odeya played one of main characters in the 2015 film adaptation. It's basically similar to OTL: a Maori boy moves to a new town, meet a beautiful but mysterious girl next door, who's father happens to be a fictional version of the author of Spooktacular Stories. But when the monsters escape from the books, they have to save the town from Frankie, an evil ventriloquist dummy with the strong Australian accent.

**A sci-fi series set hundreds of years in the future that centres on a ANZC colony located on another planet. Odeya stands out as a LGBTQ character in a romantic relationship with one of the other female colonists (played by Hailee Steinfeld).

Newcastle, Australia. Being home to many former Sydneysiders, it was only natural they'd recreate some of Sydney's landmarks, such as the Newcastle River Bridge.

Although it is a Republic, the current government vows to restore the kingdom if they ever find any survivors of the Spanish royal family. However, due to public concern, a referendum, recognized by the government, is under way to decide whether or not Spain should continue this policy of searching for distant relatives of the Royal Family put on the throne.
 



Born to a family of Americans who were fortunate enough to survive Doomsday, Hailee Steinfeld grew up in the associate state of Hawaii, before moving to the Gold Coast at the age of seven among the American community of New Miami. There she showed an interest in acting, where she starred in several theatre and TV productions, as well as commercials, before making her big break in the 2010 Australian blockbuster the Bushman's Daughter. Since then she has been on a meteoric rise in the entertainment industry, gaining roles in hit television productions such as Outback Galaxy and popular films such as Brisbane Bellas,* she has also blossomed as a world famous singer. After signing up with Eureka Records in 2014, she has sold a record breaking number of CDs across the world, eventually performing sold-out concerts in Adelaide, Niagara Falls, Sao Paulo, Dublin, Victoria and Toledo.

*TTL version of the Pitch Perfect movies.

So Steinfeld will still exist in this TL? I'm sure Lorde will too since she is from New Zealand.
 
Geelong, Australia. After Doomsday, many former Melbourne residents made their home here, bringing much of their city's culture and character with them, including a fierce love of Australian football

Highlights of Ronald Reagan's inaugural ceremony on January 20, 1981 in Washington, D.C. Reagan was the last American President to be sworn on office in Capitol Hill. Reagan and the first lady disappeared in the South Pacific Ocean on May 8, 1984 while en route to Australia. Having been presumed dead, Vice President George H.W. Bush became the President in leu with the line-of-succession and headed the American Provisional Administration based in Canberra from 1984 to 1995.

Several archive footage are stored in American expat museums worldwide.
 
I'm not sure about Selena Gomez or Ariana Grande. What do you guys think?
That is actually hard to determine considering they are Americans and we have no data where their parents were during Doomsday. The general rule in AH is that a person born years after the POD may not be the same at all since the different sperm theory of butterflies. But since @LouisTheGreyFox had Steinfeld born, then at least we can have a bit of author's freehand here for the case of non-American actors.
 
Two images from Operation Anadyr, the bandit suppression operation south-east of Mazyr.

In the first a vehicle of the 1st Armored Battalion flattens a log built bunker.



The second is shortly after the operation concluded, the vehicle in the background is the battalion command tank.

Do you think we should do a pop culture thread for 1983 Doomsday?
