It’s a time of major change for up-and-coming Australian actress Olivia Deeble who recently quit her role as Raffy Morrison on Home and Away to play a Disney princess in the bright lights of Hollywood.

And it seems the 16-year-old beauty is also experiencing some big personal shifts, as Olivia confirmed her split from Australian model boyfriend Ethan Hay on Tuesday night.

In an interview with New Idea at the Sydney premiere of Disney’s live action reboot of The Lion King, Olivia said she’s very much single.

“Whatever happens, happens – there’s a lot of beautiful people out there!” she said of potential future romances.

Ethan last appeared on Olivia’s social media in January and eagled-eyed fans noticed the star had unfollowed her beau on Instagram in May.


Last month, the blonde bombshell was forced to rubbish rumours of a romantic relationship with one of her Secret Society of Second Born Royals co-star, after setting tongues wagging with a cosy Instagram post.

Quickly putting whispers to bed, she commented: “We are just friends guys.”

Asked how long she will continue appearing in Summer Bay, Olivia remained coy but said there’s “still plenty of Raffy to come”.

Olivia also revealed she’s fluent in French as well as being a talented contortionist, and uses the quirky skill as her party trick.


Olivia praised her support system for keeping her grounded through her years as one of Australia’s best known child stars.

“I have wonderful support from my family and friends. My parents always told me if you want to work in this industry, you have to have a work ethic so that’s really important to me,” she said.

“I’m doing what I love to do!”
