When speaking to TV WEEK, Ray said he hopes to see his former co-star Chris Hemsworth at the Logies this year.

"He's just a terrific bloke," Ray continues. "All of that fame and success definitely hasn't gone to his head. He's such a nice, grounded man."
Chris Hemsworth starred as Kim Hyde on Home and Away for three years.

Of his first-ever Logies win in 2010, Ray said "These things have never meant much to me over the years, mainly because I've never held one. All of a sudden they seem unbelievably important."
