Mark continued: "I see Todd Lasance all the time, I see a bit of Isabel Lucas and I've had beers with the Hemsworth boys.
"I spent nearly 10 years in LA, but I moved back to Sydney's northern beaches a year ago, so I'm open to whatever work comes my way.
"Home And Away was a very special time in my life."
Mark's blind audition on The Voice airs this week.
It's perhaps a surprising choice for Mark, who has recorded three albums with the rock band Shotgun Alley and toured New Zealand.
"I do feel a bit vulnerable in putting myself out there on a reality TV show," Mark admits.
"I really had to think it over."
But the opportunity to showcase his voice proved too tempting.
"I'm a performer and want to work," Mark says.
"I'm keen to reintroduce myself to Australia. Ric will always be a part of my life – I still get recognised as him – but I want to show off another side of myself.
"I'm aware people will see me as the guy from Home And Away, but music is a huge part of who I am too."
