Home And Away Loses Another Hunky Heartthrob To Hollywood
Summer Bay fans, get ready to say goodbye to one of your most loved (and most perved on) characters.
Steve Peacocke, A.K.A. Darryl “Brax” Braxton and the last of the original River Boys, is officially leaving Home and Away!
But don't fret, even though he's already filmed his final scenes, we'll still get the chance to drool over watch him on our screens for most of this year.
“It wasn’t something I was looking forward to because I love the show and the people I work with so much,” Peacocke said.
“But I think the key to any good TV series or any good storytelling is to leave the audience at the right point, and where we got to with Brax, we hit a point where it was the best point for him to exit the show. It was just the perfect time I guess.”
The hunky actor and wife Bridgette Sneddon, a fellow H&A actor who has also finished up on the show, have already moved to L.A. to try their luck in Hollywood... but could he be back?
“I don’t want to give too much away but stranger things have happened in Home and Away,” he said. “It is a really awesome way they’ve pulled the story together but I think the door will always be open for Brax. It’s been written in a really clever way.”
Peacocke got a taste of Hollywood last year with a small role in blockbuster Hercules which also starred Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson... could he be the next Chris Hemsworth?
