Home and Away‘s newest family the Morgan clan, join the Seven soap from tonight.
They are L-to-R: Justin (James Stewart), Brody (Jackson Heywood), Tori (Penny McNamee) and Mason (Orpheus Pledger).
While Stewart is well-known to audiences, here is a little more on the other three ‘Morgan siblings.’
Jackson Heywood, 27, has appeared in Dance Academy, East West 101, Teen Wolf plus Vulnerable and The Weight of Blood and Bones.
“Apart from being able to work in the same area I grew up in, I honestly feel like I couldn’t have landed a better job,” he said. “For the longest time I’ve been searching for a role that gives me the time and opportunity to really make a role my own and also allows me to continually hone my craft and cultivate my love for what I do. I’m looking forward to this next chapter in my life.”
Penny McNamee, 32, has appeared in stage productions of Witches of Eastwick, Hurlyburly, Wicked: The Musical and TV credits include White, Collar Blue, All Saints, Headland, Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot, The Pacific, Political Animals, Elementary and Blue Bloods.
“Home and Away is the perfect job; it’s filmed in the best city in the world, on the most beautiful beaches, with world class actors and it’s summer all year round! What more could a girl ask for?” she said.
Orpheus Pledger, 22, has appeared in The Secret Life of Us, Marshall Law, Welcher & Welcher, CrashBurn, Silversun, McLeod’s Daughters, Blue Heelers, Neighbours, Schapelle, House Husbands, The Matrix and The Wannabes.
“An opportunity this rare is the start of my dreams coming true. I am exceptionally grateful that I am able to give my all and focus on the one thing I am most passionate about in life. Moving out of home to start working on my biggest and longest role to date has been a major shift and the team at Home and Away have become like a family to me. I spend every day with the best cast and crew members and I’m so thankful for that,” he said.
7pm weeknights on Seven.
