He’s not the only famous export playing a starring role.

In today’s edition of ‘Former Home And Away stars killing it in Hollywood’ is Luke Mitchell revealing the first tantalising trailer for his new show: The Republic of Sarah.

If you follow the former Summer Bay star on social media, you’ve probably seen plenty of behind-the-scenes photos teasing the new series.
The plot revolves around a small town that is on the verge of being destroyed by a greedy mining company.

As a result, history teacher Sarah Cooper (Stella Baker, Simon Baker’s daughter) devises an outlandish plan that involves the town exploiting a loophole to establish itself as its own country.

She explains that the land on which Greylock sits was never properly claimed by the United States, citing various historical maps,” according to the official show synopsis.

“If Sarah and her friends can persuade the town to vote for independence, Greylock will gain international sovereignty and will be able to permanently protect its land.”

The 36-year-old plays Sarah’s estranged brother, Danny, who “after enduring a difficult childhood at the hands of his mother,” finds himself back home and “eager to exact his revenge on a community he feels abandoned him.”
