''I’ve had an absolute ball trying to win the hearts and minds of Summer Bay.''

With a slew of Home and Away favourites departing Summer Bay this year, it's made way for four brand new new cast members to join the show.
The latest characters will arrive in Summer Bay as part of a fictional band called Lyrik.
Rob Mallet will star as Bob, Angelina Thomson as Kirby, Adam Rowland as Remi and Stephanie Panozzo will play Eden.

Home and Away isn't Rob's first foray into performing. He previously appeared on House Husbands, Winners and Losers and in the stage production of The Rocky Horror Show.
Rob said landing a role on Home and Away was on his bucket list.
"The whole team there are a pleasure to work with and experts at what they do. It's no wonder the show still has as much support as it does," he told The Daily Telegraph.

Adam said he was working a bar job at a local pub when he received the news he was cast on the show.
"I was pouring pints when my phone rang with the news. Needless to say I needed a pint or two myself after that phone call. I was excited and slightly daunted baby the fact that my life was about to change," he told the publication.
Rob's new co-star Stephanie is also no stranger to Aussie TV. She appeared in My Life is Murder and Hyde & Seek alongside Deborah-Lee Furness and Zoe Ventoura.
But Stephanie's Home and Away gig didn't come without its struggles. The WAAPA graduate admitted she was "devastated" that she couldn't audition in person for her role after contracting COVID.
She instead tried out over a nerve-wracking Zoom call with a panel of casting producers.
"My agents FaceTimed me, which they never do, and they said I booked the role. I was absolutely blown away and beyond excited. It was a very surreal and incredible feeling," she said.
The fictional band Lyrik will be make their Summer Bay debut on July 4. It comes after Sam Frost, Harley Bonner, Lukas Radovich and Courtney Miller exited the show earlier this year.
