Looking back on a Summer Bay legend: Marilyn’s most iconic moments on Home and Away

Take a stroll down memory lane...

By TV Week team
While the series boasts countless famous faces and jaw-dropping plotlines, there are few Home and Away characters who've made as much of an impact on the sunny town of Summer Bay as Marilyn Chambers.
Portrayed by the glamorous Emily Symons, Marilyn has been a fixture on our screens for more than 30 years, dipping in and out of the bay through the decades before settling back in town in 2010.
Marilyn - described as the 'ditzy girl next door' - debuted on Home and Away in 1989.
She quite literally crashed into the scene when her boyfriend, Lance Smart (portrayed by Peter Vroom), took her out on the water only to collide with a boat belonging to Alf Stewart (the iconic Ray Meagher).
Despite the crash, Marilyn made the decision to move to Summer Bay from the city and the rest, as they say, is history.

With her signature hairstyle, quirky traits and a few major romances, she's since cemented her role as the loveable beautician in the bay.
Take a stroll down memory lane as we revisit some of Marilyn's most iconic moments on Home and Away.
