Since she first moved in to Summer Bay 20 years ago, Leah Patterson has been at the heart of some of Home and Away’s most memorable storylines – everything from the deaths of her first two beloved husbands Vinnie (Ryan Kwanten) and Dan (Tim Campbell) to suffering a brain aneurysm following a horror bus crash, and even giving birth as a surrogate mother to Sally’s (Kate Ritchie) daughter Pippa.

“I’ve never been one of those actors who have felt like I have to stay in a character, but I did when I was filming these scenes – just to get into the places I had to get to,” says Ada. “It was quite scary and exhausting. We will absolutely see Leah in a completely different light.”
