She’s starred as Raffy Morgan on Home and Away for three years, but now it’s time for Olivia Deeble to take the next step. The 17-year-old actress is leaving Summer Bay for LA, where she scored a role in the upcoming Disney+ film Secret Society Of Second Born Royals.

Her final episode of Home and Away aired on Channel Seven overnight, and Olivia took to Instagram to mark the occasion with a special post for her fans; a video with her on-screen older brother James Stewart (who plays Justin Morgan).

“This clip was taken as I finished my last scene,” she writes. “After 3 years and almost 1000 episodes I completed my journey in the bay.

“It was the most amazing experience of my life, I will be eternally grateful for all of my cast mates and crew. Thank you to all of you for the constant support and love.”

Olivia’s Home and Away co-stars have shared the love for her on social media, sharing tributes and touching messages for the actress as she embarks on her next step.

Sarah Roberts (Willow Harris) commented on Olivia’s post to wish her well.

“This makes my heart melt,” she wrote. “We love u & miss u. So happy to see ya kicking goals beautiful girl!”

Emily Symons shared a selfie with Olivia and Georgie Parker on her page.

“You will always be our beautiful ray of sunshine,” writes Emily, who stars as Marilyn. “We love and miss you. So proud of you.”

Penny McNamee (Tori Morgan) paid tribute to her ‘little sister’ with a sweet on-set photo.

“My gorgeous on-screen little sister has flown the coop for bigger and brighter adventures!” Penny writes. “Ovy, it has been such a joy to play your big sister for the past 3 years. Your kindness, generosity and warm nature has brought joy to my days. Thank you for all the cuddles, girly chats and giggles.”

Georgie (Roo Stewart) shared a stunning photo of Olivia on set.

“What a ray of sunshine you are,” she writes. “Love and luck to you in your journey beyond the Bay. We love you and think you’re AWESOME.”

Olivia’s next project will be available on the Disney+ streaming service, which is set to launch in Australia and New Zealand in November.

The actress will be starring as Princess Roxana in Secret Society of Second Born Royals, alongside stars including Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Elodie Yung (Daredevil, The Defenders) and Peyton Elizabeth Lee (Andi Mack).

We can’t wait to see the new flick! Good luck to Olivia as she takes on Hollywood.
