Is it a case of Morag, you are the weakest link, goodbye?
Soapie matriarch Cornelia Frances, who has played Home and Away‘s Morag on and off for 23 years, wrapped her final scene late last week.
News Limited reports the writers have decided to farewell her character in circumstances insiders have called abrupt.
Sources on set said they were surprised at the prompt departure.
But a spokesman said she was signed as a guest artist with her time determined before she began filming.
“Cornelia has wrapped up her current guest stint,” he said.
“Morag is a much loved Summer Bay character and we’re sure we’ll see her back in the Bay.”
Television fans have loved her ability to play sour characters on screen. Few do it better than Frances.
She is well known for her stern hosting of The Weakest Link and as the domineering matron Sister Scott in The Young Doctors.
