Dr. Chris is in the house and there are a lot of secrets in the pockets of this enigmatic medical guy. In November 2020, actor Davey told Digital Spy how there are “things that follow him that he doesn’t even know.” We can’t wait to see what the newcomer has in store.

Last year, Mackenzie, Dean Thompson’s half-sister, came to Summer Bay and is the new owner of the Salt restaurant. In good old-fashioned soap opera, Dean was unaware that she was his sister when they met and it proved to be quite a shock.
Ziggy was considered to be a little troublesome at times, another 2017 arrival, and one of her early stories saw her run away from home. Ziggy was in a relationship with Brody, a marriage that was definitely not accepted by her father, Ben, but the couple still went on to get married. However, the turbulent relationship was never meant to be and they have split since then.
As recently as 2018, Dean arrived in a long line of River Boys, a criminal gang operating in the area and dominating the screen for many years. Many of his stories were linked to crime, with the troublemaker getting into trouble with a loan shark and committing robberies and credit card fraud to attempt to bail himself out.
The long-standing member of the cast first appeared all the way back in 1989 in the film. This is Symon’s third long-running stint playing Marilyn’s character and this is the longest stint that began in 2010. Marilyn has been at the core of so many stories over the years.
Arriving at the end of 2017, Jasmine is a nurse and is described as a “spirited Aussie girl” and during her time on the show so far she has had her fair share of love interests with Colby Thorne, Mason Morgan and Robbo all being romantically related to her.
In 2017 (like many others on this list), personal trainer Willow arrived and she soon found herself in a relationship with Justin Morgan. The relationship ended after some gang trouble and she was reunited with her former flame, Dean Thompson.

The sheltered but feisty Bella, emerging at the tail end of 2018, is Colby’s younger half-sister and has been the focus of a lot of drama since appearing in Summer Bay.
Justin is a mechanic with a bit of a temper who entered the show next to his siblings and loved his position as “head of the household.” A 2016 arrival now. He and his siblings were initially in witness protection after the murder of their parents at the hands of a drug syndicate, forever a hero for saving Alf’s life once.
Justin’s sibling, she also experienced many of the same horrors that followed the murder of her parents and ensuing terror at the hands of the drug syndicate. In 2018, she made the decision to become a mother, and part of the plot was her fertility care.
John’s been on Home and Away since 2009, and was originally known for being a bit of an angry character, another long-timer. Over time, however, he has mellowed and started to reveal a more funny side. Marilyn Chambers’ husband. The pair are now fostering children.
Can you believe that since 2000, Leah has been on Home and Away? It seems like we fell in love with her and Vinnie just yesterday, as a couple, with a boy, VJ, coming out of marriage. She went on to marry Dan Baker (who also died) after Vinnie’s death, and then Zac McGuire (now separated, but not dead).
McGranger first appeared as Irene in 1993, another long-time fixture, and has since remained a member of the regular cast. She is fiercely loyal and will always go to bat with you if she cares for you, known for taking in waifs and strays such as Selina Roberts and the brilliantly called Joey Rainbow.
Like Marilyn, it’s hard, to sum up, Alf since Home and Away first started, as he has become a regular fixture of Summer Bay. Over the years, we’ve seen Alf go through many ups and downs, including marrying and then losing Ailsa, his beloved wife.
Although Roo originally debuted back in the first year of 1988, since 2010, actress Georgie Parker has been the one who embodies the character and this year she celebrates her 10th anniversary on the show.
Police officer Colby also arrived in 2018 and has much in common with Dean-not only were they mates once, but Colby was a gang member formerly, too. He had a relationship with Jasmine and shared some shocking details about his upbringing, such as the abduction of his younger sister by an abusive stepfather.
