Getting Ziggy with it! Why Home and Away fans love the sassiest Summer Bay local

Packing punch and promise.

By Jess Pullar
When the troubled Ziggy Astoni first graced the screens of Home and Away, fans weren't sure what to make of the bold newcomer.
With an ex-boyfriend who was still causing strife for the Astoni family (seriously, the back story involved him knocking Ziggy's mum Maggie unconscious...), the young blonde Aussie didn't exactly have, er, humble beginnings on the show.
But boy were we in for a character arc like no other.
Played by the formidable talent Sophie Dillman, fans watched with anticipation as Ziggy and her family settled in Summer Bay (completely by chance as they road-tripped up the coast).
And in a twist that no one (and definitely not Ziggy, herself) saw coming, she finds herself settling into a new, rather wholesome normal.
Funnily enough, it suits her.
In the years since her first appearance in 2017, we've watched as Ziggy has grown both as daughter, partner and friend - and what a journey it's been.
From troubled beginnings and controversial boyfriends, to a gritty garage job and with a fiercely loyal persona, Ziggy is the ultimate Summer Bay heroine.
Keep scrolling as we relive her best moments.
