Sophie Dillman created a buzz amongst Home and Away fans after she shared a suggestive photo with her on-screen lover Patrick O’Connor.
In a photo posted to Instagram, the 24-year-old is locked in a warm embrace with her Home and Away co-star as they smile at each other.
The Aussie actors appeared to be standing in a field as they held each other close.
Adding more fuel to the fire, Sophie added the following caption to the post:
“My bedroom view is better.”
EXCLUSIVE: Sophie Dillman and Patrick O’Connor on their onscreen romance
Fans went wild at the photo, flooding the commenting section with questions about their potential relationship.
“So are you guys a thing?” one user commented.
“Are they dating in real life ❤️” said another.
Another follower was exceptionally confused by the caption, writing “I'm confused, are you saying your bedroom view is better than this photo? If so that's pretty harsh, Patrick goes alright. 😂”
Sophie replied to the user with an explanation of what her caption meant, which (to the dismay of her followers) shut down the rumours of their romance.
“To confirm- I was suggesting that the view from my bedroom window was better than the view of his face.”
Earlier this year, Sophie (who plays Ziggy Astoni on the Aussie soap) and Patrick (who plays Dean) told New Idea what it was like filming their steamy love scenes – revealing that it wasn’t as glamorous as it appeared to be.
“A funny moment was when I was once filming on the beach during summer and we both got the ‘sweat-mo,” said Patrick.
“Kissing when you both have one proves to be an interesting experience!”
Sophie had her own horror story, adding, “When we went to Parachilna, for the shower scene that we filmed, I didn’t actually get to shower so I was covered in stinky, smelly mud the whole time. Poor Paddy!”
