“Home and Away is obviously known as a launch pad for many actors’ careers. Obviously going into the type of role that this is, being a River Boy and there being a story there already that is so big and well known, it means there is a legacy there to play around with and being a bad boy on the show is exciting.”
The River Boys gang, who is known for their integral and drama-filled storylines, helped carve a stepping stone for other stars like Steve Peacocke, who is now based in Hollywood.
According to the news publication, O’Connor is a Queensland University of Technology acting graduate who has spent the past few years auditioning for roles but finally landed one that is set to send fans into a frenzy.
And while we're yet to see what his character has in store for us, O'Connor has posted a snap alongside new castmate Sam Frost.
Stay tuned to witness the new and interesting storyline, which will air once the Australian Open ends on Channel 7.
