After leaving Home and Away, Sophie Dillman and Patrick O’Connor made the decision to move to London.
They are a real-life couple in addition to their role as Ziggy Astoni and Dean Thompson on the serial opera.
Before moving into Summer Bay, the two were acquainted, and they planned to leave the show together.
How did Sophie and Patrick meet?
Although they first publicly declared their relationship in September 2019, the couple had been friends for many years prior to their soap opera debut.
Their eight-year friendship began when they enrolled in the same acting program in Queensland and began their studies together.
They both ended up working on Home and Away after earning their degrees, with Sophie joining the cast first.
After relocating together in 2020 and getting a cute puppy, the pair is now really dating.
Why did Sophie and Dillman leave Home and Away?
After appearing in Home and Away for five years, the couple announced their departure from the show back in February.
The pair was excited for the next phase of their lives, although Sophie described the decision as “pretty big.”
“I guess after we kind of (decided to leave after) just over five years, we’re kind of entering a new stage, like dirty thirties,” she said on The Morning Show.
What are Sophie and Patrick doing in London?
After the performance, Sophie and Patrick made the choice to go to London. They continue to travel more during their free time, so they aren’t yet done relocating.
Even in their 30s, they joked that they were taking a gap year. They had so far taken a road trip around Scotland and Ireland, which they described as nothing short of fantastic.
Patrick revealed that they also went on a quick weekend break to Italy as they are keen to travel around Europe while they are residing in the UK.
