A character so great we forgot all about her explosive origins: Why Home & Away's Jasmine has become the soap's icon in just two years

The loveable nurse was technically responsible for killing off one of the show's most loved characters - but you wouldn't know it now.

When it comes to Home and Away's Jasmine Delaney, you'd be hard pressed to remember a time when we weren't so sure on the Summer Bay local.
But like all characters we've seen come and go on the iconic Aussie soap, the mysterious nurse had some very humble beginnings when she first broke onto our screens back in 2017.
Of course, she caught our attention immediately given the character was played by former Bachelorette Sam Frost, whose acting prowess couldn't be ignored.
But there was something else about Jasmine that's really hit home for the show's loyal viewers - and looking back now, it's easy to see why she so quickly became a fellow legend of The Bay.
Jasmine first arrived in Summer Bay as one of it's most loved former residents left - in a casket, no less.
And interestingly, the cause of said resident's death, copper Kat Chapman, was a direct result of Jasmine.
So why does Australia love this misunderstood character so much? Well, the proof is in the pictures, dear reader - so allow us to answer that question for you.
