Nicole Kidman is currently at the peak of her career, having just won an Emmy award for her harrowing role in television series Big Little Lies, but when it comes to the things that are important, Kidman will abandon it all to be there. 

And that is exactly what she has done, with the 50-year-old actress putting her busy awards season schedule on hold to rush back home to Sydney for the funeral of a family friend and priest, Father Paul Coleman.

The Daily Telegraph reported that Kidman is set to arrive home in Sydney in the coming days, with the funeral due to be held at St Mary’s Church in North Sydney next Thursday.
