I know there’s still a few more story turns before you leave our screens, but I want to acknowledge the mammoth effort you put in over the years on Home and Away. Is there any plot twist, line of dialogue or reference to Yabby Creek you haven’t conquered?
Yesterday Kate Ritchie filmed her final scenes on the series that has made her a household name. They will air in April.
“It’s a new beginning for me. I don’t know myself without Sally Fletcher,” she said.
“It’s so hard to explain because on the other hand there is this overwhelming sense of excitement as well. A lot of people are joking about whether I will enjoy retirement, but I really feel like it’s the beginning of something,” she said.
Ritchie takes up a regular role on Nova’s Sydney Breakfast team.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, producers paid tribute to her on the set last night. Tonight she will be the guest of honour at a farewell party thrown by the show’s cast and crew. Tomorrow night she will have a small family dinner.
