Fans were devastated when Sam Webb's character on Neighbours was presumed dead. However, to everyone's shock, his appeared as Manix Foster on last night's episode of the hit series.
"It was so great to be back on set," he told WHO. "It feels like I never left. I was so comfortable there and everyone was so welcoming. As far as my character is concerned, I think there is potential to for him to return again!"
While the former 'Australian Survivor' contestant said he loves appearing on Australian television, he has his sights set on big things and is hoping to crack Hollywood in the next five years.
"I see myself there. I am working on my craft so hard and when I am not on set I am at acting classes and working on my American accent," he says. "I respect this industry so much and I am willing to put as much time and effort into it as I possibly can to make it big. If LA is supposed to happen, then I will work my arse off to get there."
Today is the official start of Australian Mental Health Week -a week where mental health is at the forefront of every conversation and a week that means so much to us all at LIVIN as we continue to work with all of our incredible supporters and LIVIN family to smash the stigma surrounding mental health 👊 Repost @samwebb - I know when I asked for help, it was a life line. It was so hard to reach out and be honest with the people I loved and cared so much for, but so many of my friends and family wanted to help me. I was blown away by all of the support when I was in a dark place, I didn't think anyone cared and I thought I was alone. I was so very wrong. You've got this. Do it for yourself ❤️ treat yourself like a friend. You're not a burden and you matter. Your struggle is your struggle and no one can take that away from you. #SW #itaintweaktospeak #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthweek
Sam, who is very open about his struggles with mental illness, believes that honesty and speaking out is the best way to help solve problems.
"I feel that everyone has their own responsibility to get well … we are doing our very best to empower people to see that they have help and they can help themselves," he told The Daily Telegraph.
