Was she there at the same time as expat heartthrob Chris Hemsworth? “I was. We overlapped for about a year,” Tovey explains. “He and I didn’t work together that much. We did get lost in a bush due to a helicopter crash at some point – that great tragic storyline!”
Tovey says she hasn’t kept in touch with as many of her old co-stars as she would have liked, but is still very good friends with Todd Lasance. “I still keep in touch with him, because he was such a great friend during the time of filming, and a beautiful human,” she says.
“I also see a few of the crew. But certainly whenever I see any of the Home and Away guys at events, we always catch up and it’s really lovely to see them, people like Lynne McGranger and Ada [Nicodemou]. I think once you are in the family, you are kind of always in the family.”
So would she ever follow in the footsteps of Hemsworth and move Stateside? “I have always left that door open, but to be honest, I have had the work in Australia, so I haven’t felt the need to go there yet. But never say never.”
