Raechelle Banno, better known as Olivia Fraser-Richards, is being farewelled from Summer Bay.
After three years and 100 episodes, the popular Home and Away actress will star in her final episode on Monday August 13.
“I didn’t go to drama school so this was my acting school,” the 25-year-old told Sydney Confidential. “I have a huge emotional connection to the work itself, to the people and to the routine of it all so it was certainly bittersweet and emotional.”
Banno aims to go over to America to try her luck in Hollywood, but she isn't leaving Australia behind for good.
"I just love Australia and the work we produce too much to walk away from it," she says.
Home and Away continues weeknights at 7pm on SEVEN
