EXCLUSIVE: Todd Lasance gushes over his beautiful wife and daughter as he reveals why he left Hollywood

Todd Lasance and his American wife Jordan have been back in Australia for over a year. Charlie Rose, their four-year-old Georgia-born daughter, is quickly becoming an Aussie. That is obvious to everyone who listens to her talk.

She’s always got a lot of her American words, but every now and then she’ll throw out a couple of bogan words, and that just cracks us up, says the former Home And Away star to TV WEEK. It’s fantastic.

Jordan, on the other hand, is disappointed that she is losing some of her American accent. Her mother, I believe, will always try to persuade her to keep a smidgeon of that accent. It reminds her of home because she is, after all, a Georgia peach.

Todd’s return to Australia does not imply that he has abandoned his acting career in the United States. In reality, it was just a few days after he returned home and was staying with his parents in Newcastle that he learned he’d landed his biggest role yet:

I just lost it when I got Without Remorse, Todd, 36, recalls. My entire family was there, and we were all in tears. It’s an amazing feeling when you get those jobs that you know everyone on the planet is vying for and that seem so far away.

Even though Todd had just recently arrived in Australia, it was time to board another plane.

They basically said, You have to fly to Berlin on Monday. Okay, I said to myself. As a result, we gathered the family.

When Todd arrived in Summer Bay in 2005 as bad boy Aden Jefferies, his career took off. Aden’s friendship with Jessica Tovey’s character Belle Taylor was dubbed “Adelle” by fans. The relationship ended tragically with Belle’s death, but Todd and Jess are still close in real life.

This week, I had the opportunity to speak with Jess Tovey “he declares “She’s been one of my best friends over the years.

Long before he signed up for Married At First Sight, Todd even shared the frame with a young Bryce Ruthven.

He explains that he was once a member of my character’s posse.

Todd left Home And Away in 2010 and went to the United States after starring in dramas such as Rescue: Special Ops and Crownies. On The Flash, he played Edward Clariss/Rival as a guest star.

‘We’ll need you to come in so that we can start custom building your superhero costume,’ they said, and he said, ‘Yeah!’ he recalls laughing. I wish the character was a bit more fleshed out.

Todd first saw Jordan Wilcox across a room while filming another movie, The Vampire Diaries, in Georgia. He’s obviously quite smitten with her six years later.

He says, I’m not sure what I did to deserve her, so I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing.

Jordan has a history in event planning and has no desire to pursue a career as an actress.

She is, in reality, the polar opposite of that universe. It’s great to have someone who isn’t in the business but respects and values you, as well as being your biggest supporter and cheerleader.

She’s amazing, and she’s a fantastic girlfriend, too.

Jordan has also assisted Todd in perfecting his American accent.

He laughs, I’ve got an onsite free dialect instructor. I need to pay her a percentage of the gigs I get!

Despite Jordan’s encouragement, Todd’s life as an actor in Los Angeles was extremely stressful.

There are many people there who are pursuing the same career, and there is a great deal of desperation.

He would sometimes be passed over for positions solely on the basis of his appearance.

You may be ideal for the part but end up looking too much like one of the leads.

Todd and Jordan made the decision to move to Australia in order to be closer to Charlie. They desired to be settled before she began education.

We’ve always put her happiness first.

Charlie was the flower girl at the couple’s wedding in the Hunter Valley in January of last year.

Todd remembers something, I started crying as soon as I saw her step out the door. One of the many advantages of attending a later wedding was that she was mature enough to enjoy and appreciate what was going on. As she walked down the aisle and tossed the petals for us, she was giddy with excitement.

Todd’s relocation to Australia has been a success. Kidnapped was shot in far north Queensland with Claire van der Boom and Melina Vidler.

Then, after he and Jordan agreed to make their home on the Gold Coast, he was cast in Black Site, a US film being shot locally. Michelle Monaghan, Jai Courtney, and Todd’s former Home And Away co-star Lincoln Lewis star in the film.

Todd describes seeing his face as “amazing.” We ran up to each other and gave each other a huge hug while reminiscing.

Even though Todd adores Home And Away, he doesn’t see himself reprising his role as Aden. He hopes to continue landing roles in American films that are being shot in Australia.

I’d love to work on a Marvel movie. If Chris [Hemsworth] gets tired of playing Thor, I’m willing to step in!

For the time being, he’s content with his life on the relaxing Gold Coast with his family.
The more you drive around Australia, the more you realise it’s a paradise.
