There aren’t many things more wholesome than a home cooked meal and a good book before turning in early. But if you’re really getting technical here, Home and Away takes the cake as one of life’s wholesome, consistent, and quality content-providing additions – and boy are we grateful for it.

The cast are case in point. Not only do they bring us plenty of drama, chemistry and intrigue on-screen, but they’re just as tight in real life.

Take Georgie Parker for example – just a quick glance at her Instagram will prove the stars of the show are not only her colleagues, but they’re her closest pals too.

There’s no denying it, each time one of the soap’s beloved cast members posts a picture from the set, you can bet we’re flocking to get an insight into their unique relationships and dynamics.

And so, as another year of filming gets underway, we decided to put all of the pictures in one place – just so you can see it all for yourself.

Keep scrolling as we look at how these Home and Away stalwarts are one big happy family. Lots of wholesome content ahead!


Ada Nicodemou

This summer, the bay may not see the bluest skies thanks to La Niña, but on the days they do, it seems there will be a lot of revelling under the sun.

Ada Nicodemou shared a post celebrating on set with Emily Symons and Ray Meagher on one such fair-weathered day.

She posted a picture with her colleagues taking a break on set, which she captioned, “The sun finally came out 🌞 @homeandaway.”

Her good friend and co-star, Lynne McGranger, commented, “Gorgeous 😍.”

Ada shared some insight into her acting process by taking a car selfie holding a sheet of paper with her lines. She wrote alongside the post, “Learning lines in the car 🚗 😀.”


Sam Frost

Sam Frost couldn’t help herself when she made cheeky fun of her co-star Nicholas Cartwright during rehearsals.

On her Instagram story, she shared a video of Nicholas arriving in crutches, and a woman can be heard saying, “Well done Nicholas, here for the last ten minutes,” and a man says, “Sounds like I am doing better than you.”

The actor replied, “Yeah, everyone is doing better than me, mate.” But, of course, Sam can be heard losing it in the background, and when Nicholas reposted her video in his caption, he sarcastically wrote, “Most supportive colleague award goes to…”

However, the fun didn’t end there! Sam shared a second video of the Summer Bay policeman attempting to climb stairs with his crutches. In the background, the blonde actor mocks, “Ohhhhww, what’s he gonna do?” as she laughs and snorts.

Nicholas can be heard murmuring, “A supportive work environment here.”

Sam Frost Nicholas Cartwright

Co-stars who banter together make television magic together! Sam Frost shared a behind-the-scenes video filmed by Nicholas Cartwright of the actors joking about Sam’s facial hair.

Nicholas is behind the camera in the Instagram story as he films Sam, but the 32-year-old quickly warns him not to film so close to her face because she’s rocking a monobrow and moustache.

“Don’t do it took close to my face. I’ve got lots of facial hair,” says Sam as Nicolas laughs in the background.

Sam captioned the video, “@_nicholascartwright my monobrow &moustache is too hectic to be filming that close.”
