The actor will make his debut this week as Ken, “a malevolent god who has returned to take down Hope, the world’s only tribrid, and reclaim his title as the world’s most powerful being,” Deadline reports.

It seems as though the husband and wife will cross paths in the hit series, as Rebecca’s character Aurora is on the hunt to find powerful gods.

And as we know, Luke’s new character Ken seems to be exactly what she’s after, meaning there’s a good chance the two will reunite on screen – much to the delight of fans.

It comes after Rebecca landed a recurring role with the show late last year, after her character Aurora made her debut in The Originals.

As for Luke, the Aussie actor has gone on to star in a number of international roles since he and his wife departed the sandy shores of Summer Bay.

The acting duo have come a long way since Home and Away.
