Personal Quotes*
I always look back on Home and Away (1988) with fondness, especially when I'm in the UK. But I had no idea what I was doing back then. I just fell into acting. It was only later that I became passionate about it.

I like the oppourtunity to play characters who have these dark sides but make the audience empathise with them. You want them to think there is some kind of sweeter, softer side to it.

There is a wealth of Australian talent in Hollywood right now but we're all pretty busy and it's not as though we're best mates. When we see each other, we say hello.

I've always thought the show should have been simpler than it was, so for me, it was nice to have a little less than what we've been expanding upon for the last number of years
