Meet the newest resident of Summer Bay.
Car crashes, explosive fires, divorce: there are many varied ways characters leave the drama-filled town of Summer Bay. But the real excitement comes when new residents arrive, bringing fresh life and plotlines to Home and Away.
Rose, played by Kirsty Marillier, is the newest resident. Kirsty has previously been in Melbourne’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, as well as Sydney’s Home, I’m Darling, and The Cherry Orchard. In 2018, she made a cameo as Rhea on the Australian soap opera Home and Away.
Kirsty has already began recording parts for the program next year, bringing her theatrical talents to Summer Bay. On Wednesday, when the show celebrated her casting, the actor uploaded a sunny photo from the Palm Beach filming site.
“In 2022, Summer Bay will be joined by a new character named Rose! Please welcome Kirsty Mariller to the Home and Away cast,” the production team wrote on the show’s official account.
Nicholas Cartwright and Laura Vazquez, the hair and make-up artist for Home and Away, were among those there to congratulate her on her new role.
Kirsty said she was “ecstatic” to share her current position with fans when the news was initially disclosed last week.
She posted on Instagram, “Can now come clean about this hot bit of news I’ve been harbouring for the previous 2 months.” “I’m overjoyed to report that I’ve been cast as a series regular on Home and Away.” Woah.
“Getting to be a part of this Aus icon-of-a-show is a bit wild. It’s been a gorg 6 weeks of shooting as I embrace the bay as new resident brown girl, Rose.”
