For talented newcomer Emily Weir, who not surprisingly jumped at the chance to join the hugely successful weeknight series, the first day on set was certainly one she’ll never forget.
After all, it saw her acting alongside two of Home and Away’s most iconic and seasoned stars.
“My first speaking scene was actually with Ray (Meagher, who plays Alf) and Georgie (Parker, who plays Roo), which was amazing and also very nerve-wracking,” laughs Emily.
“But, oh my God, they’re both the kindest and most generous people – beyond amazing. I couldn’t believe I was there. Actually, my first week on the show was just utter joy.”
And while Mackenzie looks set to ruffle some feathers in the Bay, her portrayer happily reveals this: “Mackenzie brings drama in bucketloads to the town, but her heart is definitely in the right place.”
To meet the newcomer, tune in tonight, 7pm on Channel 7.
