Ray Meagher not leaving Home & Away

Ray Meagher is not leaving Home and Away, but he is taking time out for a stage production of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert.

Yesterday a Daily Mail headline suggested, “‘It’s a privilege’: Home and Away‘s Ray Meagher, 74, announces he will leave his 30-year stint as Alf Stewart for a role in theatre.”

The article drew upon a New Idea story “Home And Away‘s Ray Meagher: ‘Goodbye for now.'”

The original article, as published by Seven-owned Pacific Magazines, did not indicate he was quitting the show, noting that Alf would continue to be kept on his toes in the coming months.

“Sometimes there’s a bit of trouble in there to be sorted out,” Meagher said. “Other times there are family dramas.”

A Seven source today confirmed to TV Tonight, “Ray is definitely not leaving, though will be in Brissie for few months for Priscilla.”
