For fans of Home and Away, the relationships between their favorite characters are extremely significant. As a result, it’s amazing to see how long the bonds formed between the cast members of the hit soap have lasted.
Some of the show’s on-screen friends and partners, such as Lincoln Younes, Samara Weaving, and Kassandra Clementi, have formed friendships that appear to last a lifetime!
Indeed, the current cast of Home And Away has strong friendships, with actress Sophie Dillman describing her close relationship with the cast and crew as “family.”
Sophie, who plays Ziggy on the show, told TV Week last year, “Spending eight weeks away when we weren’t filming and then coming back and seeing everybody, it’s like a family.”
“We spend at least 12 hours a day together, so we’re all really close. On this set, everybody gets along like a house on fire. And I’m thankful for that because we would have killed each other if we didn’t.”

When Nicholas Cartwright joined the group in June, Sam Frost greeted him with open arms, posting a photo of the actor on her Instagram stories alongside a beautiful note praising his work ethic.
“Tonight we welcome this legend @nicholas_cartwright to Summer Bay. Nic is honestly such a breath of fresh air,” she began. “He’s such a selfless and generous actor, and he has an epic sense of humour. We only communicate via memes, which is how it should be. We adore you.”
While Sam has denied that they are dating, the two enjoy hanging out and sharing a laugh when they are not on set.
Sam captioned a lovely Instagram post with three photos of them posing with their drinks and smiling from ear to ear “We’re pretty much the same person, right? Except that I’m a lot funnier.”
Lynne McGranger is taking advantage of Sydney’s lockdown by spending time with her “little buddy,” Courtney Miller, and their bond extend beyond a stroll through the park. Outside of their roles as Irene Roberts and Bella Nixon on Home And Away, the actors have been seen together quite a bit recently.
On Tuesday Lynne took to Instagram with this most recent snap of them together, the 68-year-old captioning it: “#covidwalks with my little buddy @courtney_ally #freshair #sunshine #catchups”
Just two weeks earlier Lynne shared another cute behind-the-scenes selfie with Courtney from the set of Summer Bay. “Playing in the Bay with my girlie @courtney_ally 🥰☂️🌤⭐️💕,” she wrote alongside it.
Courtney then shared the snap to her own profile, the 26-year-old chiming in “I’m a lucky gal”.
Lynne isn’t the only Home And Away cast member with whom Courtney has a sweet friendship. In June, a large number of Summer Bay regulars attended the 26-year-art old’s show, with many of them sharing photos from the occasion.
Georgie Parker shared this cute snapshot of her castmates on Instagram, stating, “It was a fantastic night with my castmates.” Sam Frost, Emily Weir, Sophie Dillman, and Patrick O’Connor were among those who showed up to support Courtney.
Come together, Alf and Sally! It’s been 13 years since Kate Ritchie left Home And Away, but the 42-year-old and her former co-star Ray Meagher are still as close as ever. The two met for a casual lunch at popular Sydney hotspot Bistro Rex in Potts Point just last week.
“Who would’ve thought this kid from Campbelltown would still be having lunch with this boy from Roma? We did again today and it was food for the soul as per usual.. 💙🍽❤️ #loveyouray #andyoutoogilly #lifelongfriends #1987 #2021,” Kate penned alongside this sweet snap.
Since her departure from the show in 2008, the two have remained close friends. Ray even made a surprise appearance on her radio show for a special reunion.
The best of both worlds! Luke Jacobz and his fiancee Raychel Stuart recently joined current Home And Away stars and real-life couple Paddy O’Connor and Sophie Dillman to watch a Swans AFL game.
“What a group to watch with,” Luke shared.
Luke and Paddy aren’t afraid to joke about together.
“Bill & ben the flower pot men,” Paddy quipped next to this selfie.
Georgie Parker, who portrays Roo Stewart on the program, and Ditch Davey, who portrays Dr. Christian Green, went on a lunch date this week.
“Lunch with the good Doctor 👨🏼⚕️☕️,” Georgie captioned this sweet snap.
“Obviously, my partner is on set with me, and it’s wonderful to work with him,” Sophie Dillman said of her relationship with co-star Patrick O’Connor, before noting that the Channel 7 soap has also helped cultivate friendships with some “great girlfriends.”
“Emily Weir (Mackenzie Booth) and Courtney Miller (Bella Nixon) are two of my very close girlfriends,” the actress said.
The depiction of the Morgan siblings by Penny McNamee and James Stewart has solidified their off-screen relationship.
Their bond was highlighted even more when the actress paid a heartfelt tribute to James on his birthday.
“Happy Birthday to my brother from another mother, @jamesstewart. Jimbo – you make my time at work so joy-filled. Thank you for your beautiful friendship, solid advice, constant support, and ALL THE LAUGHS!! In the hallowed halls of Summer Bay, you have and always will be ‘my person’. Xxx,” she wrote at the time.
Paddy O’Connor and Ada Nicodemou are friends despite not having shot many scenes together.
“Even though we work on the same show, we don’t do a lot of scenes together @paddy.oco @homeandaway,” Ada shared on Instagram alongside a photo with Patrick, who plays Dean, on the show.
Sam Frost and Maddy Jevic are the epitome of best friends, not only living together but also often sharing funny TikTok videos of their antics on social media.
Maddy confessed to being fast friends with Sam, whom she described as “divine,” in an interview with TV WEEK about joining Home And Away.
“It’s just a hoot – everything you see is so true, and we [the cast] get along so well.”
What a wonderful bromance! Since Ditch Davey joined the show, James Stewart and Ditch Davey have become firm friends.
“He’s a consummate professional who’s also witty and well-spoken. We’ve gotten along swimmingly. I now have a friend, and I’m very happy about it “James revealed their friendship to New Idea.
“I communicate with Kate Ritchie, Tessa James, and a few of the crew members on a regular basis. They’re such a great group of people. You form these bonds and refuse to let go of any of them “According to TV Week, Jodi Gordon, who played Martha MacKenzie,
Despite the fact that Johnny Ruffo left the soap opera in 2016, he remains tight with former co-star Lynne McGranger.
“Every other week,” Johnny said, “I still see Lynne McGranger.”
The two first became friends because of their common love of the Australian Football League, and they now have a nice tradition with their respective teams in which the loser owes dinner to the loser.
On-screen and off, Sam Frost and Sarah Roberts are best friends.
Sam captioned a sweet picture of the two for Sarah’s birthday: “My Sar Bear is my absolute favorite!! I’ve never met someone with such a friendly and welcoming demeanor. Sar is stunning both inside and out. I’m very fortunate to have such a wonderful and loving mate.” It’s adorable!
Cameron Daddo and Georgie Parker have been friends for a long time, so when Daddo was cast on the show last year, the two were ecstatic.
Ladies, unite! When the show went on an extraordinary eight-week hiatus last year due to the national COVID-19 lockdown, Ada Nicodemou and close pal Lynne McGranger really suffered.
“We catch up on House Party, FaceTime, and other similar activities. I have to say, I’m really looking forward to catching up with all of my Home and Away friends – particularly Ada – when we do return. I’ve been missing her, “Lynne admitted at the time.
“We’re the best of friends. And may I add that I am immensely proud of her; I believe that everyone has fallen in love with her because of what I see every day. She’s a lovely lady, and I’m very proud of her “In 2017, Ada captioned a picture of herself and Lynne taken in Italy.
