Home and Away Cash star’s life – soldier, co-star ‘romance’ and soap star sister

    Nicholas Cartwright joined the Australian soap back in June 2021 and has been a part of some rivetting storylines, but what about his life away from the cameras

    As Cash Newman, a senior police officer eager to wield the whip in the fictional Australian town of Summer Bay, Home and Away actor Nicholas Cartwright made his mark on the serial opera last year.

    Nicholas made a big impression when he first appeared on the soap opera as Constable Cash. His stunning good features and keen eye for detail made him the focus of several suspenseful plots.

    Nicholas’s character has grown to be a beloved element of the drama as a result of learning about Cash’s tragic past, which includes the murder of his father and being raised in foster care.

    What about Nicholas’s actual life, as opposed to his role?

    The Daily Star looks into everything, from his sister’s fame to his time spent in the military.

    Frontline Soldier

    Nicholas spent six years as an Australian Army rifleman before joining the soap, where he was stationed in Afghanistan and East Timor.

    Nicholas told Perth Now that he needed to “mix things up” after quitting the Army and that he needed to “fill the hole the defence force left.”

    He revealed: “You can kind of feel a little lost when you get out of the defence force, and no one wants to do a normal job.

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

    Co-star “romance”

    Wedding bells! Home and Away star Sam Frost confirms her engagement to her new boyfriend Jordie Hansen after just FIVE months of dating

    After Nicholas joined the programme, social media users instantly began to speculate about possible romantic chemistry between him and Jasmine co-star Sam Frost.

    After pictures of the two getting close on the show appeared online, viewers went to Twitter to discuss whether they were dating.

    Sam promptly dispelled the rumours and refuted the relationship theory.

    She posted several images of the couple holding drinks and wrote: “We are essentially the same person, I mean. But I’m a lot funnier.”

    However, when one fan asked if they were dating in real life, Sam wrote: “Nope.. unfortunately for Nic.”

    Soap Star Sister

    In May, Nicholas revealed that his real-life sister Zara Zoe had joined the soap.

    The 33-year-old shared a series of behind-the-scenes snaps of himself and Zara.

    He penned: “Not sure if y’all have seen the promo, but my beautiful lil sister will be joining us on @homeandaway this week!

    “I’ve never enjoyed a shoot more. It was virtually impossible to avoid giggling with delight as I looked across at her between takes. Working with family in such a strange world is such a lovely experience.

    “Welcome @nottherealzarazoe to the team! Watch to find out what we do.
