Former Australian Idol singer Dean Geyer is quitting his acting stint in Neighbours to pursue a music career.
“It has been a really weird year for me. It has been really up in some areas and really down in others,” he told the Herald Sun.
Geyer also admitted he had struggled with some of the storylines involving his character, which contradicted his own lifestyle.
“In some instances my personal beliefs maybe were contradicting with what the character was doing,” he said.
“I am not saying I was forced to do anything, but looking at the character I don’t necessarily agree with everything he did.
“I was fairly happy with how Ty turned out, I really enjoyed playing Ty, but I needed a lifestyle change.”
Geyer is the second Australian Idol contestant to appear as a regular on the show, following Dan O’Connor, and at least the third to be drawn from a TEN reality series.
