Everything we know about Home And Away star Ethan Browne’s bond with his teen daughter Aaylah

    The pair were good mates before landing roles on Home and Away.

    Before he arrived in Summer Bay as “hot cop” Senior Constable Cash Newman, actor Nicholas Cartwright was already good mates with one Home and Away cast member – Ethan Browne!

    Ethan, who plays Tane Parata on the show, was the first to welcome Nicholas to the tight-knit ensemble with a humorous message of support on Instagram upon his arrival in June, revealing that the two already knew each other after becoming good friends at the famed theatre school NIDA.

    “Thought I had rid myself of this guy after putting up with him for three years at drama school…now I gotta do more time with him at work ffs 😩 😂 🤙🏽…” Ethan joked in the caption, which was accompanied by some candid photos and videos of them joking around.

    Nicholas’ Senior Constable Cash Newman has been dubbed the “hot cop”.

    “When I heard there was a search for a new cop in the bay, I instantly thought of this man.

    “Perfect for the role, and he bloody well got it! One of the hardest working people I’ve met and so deserving! Super proud of you brother,” he signed off the tribute.

    Nicholas was sure to acknowledge his friend and fellow cast member’s warm welcome, joking in the comment section, “I knew you’d never leave me bro xoxo.”

    While the 33-year-old has been active in acting and music since he was a child, he spent six years as a rifleman in the Australian Army and was deployed to East Timor and Afghanistan before getting his role on the hit soap.
    After leaving the army, Nicholas felt compelled to change things up in order to fill the hole left by the defence force.

    “When you leave the military, you can feel a little lost, and no one wants to do a regular job.”

    “So I thought, what’s the craziest thing I can do and decided to go to NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art),” Nicolas told the publication.

    Speaking of his first thoughts when he learned that his buddy Ethan had first landed a role on Home and Away last year, Nicholas recalled: “I remember having a laugh with Ethan when he first got on the show because as soon as you’re working, they’re throwing you out topless.”

    Ethan was cast as Tane Parata on Home & Away in 2020, and he told TV Week that he sees parallels between himself and his character.

    “Like him, I’m a bit cheeky, but I’m more responsible. But we’re both family-oriented people who enjoy spending time with our siblings.”

    The actor refined his art while growing up in a small hamlet on New Zealand’s east coast with his brother and four sisters. He was just playing in the backyard at the moment, but it turned into a first step towards acting professionally.

    “My siblings and I used to make little short films, whether it was something we watched on TV or pretend combat scenes,” he remembers from his boyhood. “We’re all close friends. Of course, we have our terrible days, but we love to joke and hang around.”
