Co-star’s emotional tribute to Home and Away star Jessica Falkhout

As her new film Harmony is in cinemas today!

Jessica Falkholt, the Home And Away star who tragically lost her life last year following a horror crash, was set to appear in new film Harmony. 

The film is due for release Thursday, October 4, and Falkholt’s co-star Jerome Meyer has paid an emotional tribute to the late actress on what should have been the young actor’s exciting day. 

Speaking to WHO, Meyer said, “It is bringing up a lot of emotion”. 

“But I am also ready for the release of the film to be over so that I can have the film for myself and use it as a tool to remember her.”

Returning to Sydney on Boxing Day after a trip on the NSW South Coast, the Falkholt family’s vehicle was struck by another car, killing Jessica’s father, Lars, 69, mother, Vivian, 60, and her sister, Annabelle, 21, and leaving Jess on life support.

On the Jan. 17, Jess succumbed to her injuries.

“We were completely blindsided,” Meyer tells WHO. “She was such a force of nature. She was so hungry and keen to make a life happen for herself.

It was a real tragedy.”

Jessica was best known for her role on Home And Away, and was steadily growing her reputation in the entertainment scene. 

Harmony was going to be Jess’ ‘big break’. 

“It’s a high-concept horror-thriller-sci-fi,” Meyer says of the film. “It’s every genre under the sun, and it’s a romance.”

Falkholt plays Harmony, who can take away the pain and fear of others by absorbing the pain of those she touches. She only ventures out at night to help those in need before literally washing away the darkness. She meets both evil, in the form of Jimmy (Eamon Farren) and good, Mason (Meyer), who begins to make her feel that happiness is possible.

Of working together on the film he says: “There were little in-jokes that Jess and I had and I can watch the film these days and see the little glint in our eyes and I can remember what that was about…I would give up everything to have her back.”

Harmony will be in cinemas nationally 4th October 2018.
