Former Home and Away star Tammin Sursok shares family update after ‘accidental’ development


Tammin Sursok, a former star of Home and Away, has spoken up about her family’s “accidental” return to Australia.

On Channel 7’s The Morning Show on Wednesday, the 38-year-old actress explained how it happened to hosts Kylie Gillies and Larry Emdur.

Tammin, her film producer husband Sean McEwen, and their two children had been residing in Los Angeles for some years as Tammin’s acting career grew.

The family returned to Brisbane when COVID struck.


“We were originally intending to spend exactly as much time in Australia and America,” the actress explained, “but then COVID hit and we couldn’t do that, and then it just sort of happened.”

“I made a movie in Brisbane, and we kept staying because I was able to work here, and we’ve been here for about a year, so it’s been an unintentional semi-move to Australia.”

The mother of two daughters, Phoenix, eight, and Lennon, three, described how some of Lennon’s sentences now had a pronounced Australian accent.

“But my three-year-old is starting to pronounce Aussie terms,” Tammin explained, “so she’ll have her little American accent and then she’ll say, ‘It’s fine, it’s perfectly fine mum.”


“And I’m thinking to myself, oh my goodness, my kids are becoming into Aussies.” It’s a lot of fun.”

Tammin is best known for her role as Dani Sutherland on Home and Away from 2000 to 2004, as well as her appearances on the TV drama Pretty Little Liars and the miniseries Joe vs Carole.

Reunited with family

Despite the fact that she and her family have been back in Australia for over a year, due to the Queensland border restriction, she was unable to see her parents for months after their homecoming.

In December of last year, the actress sobbed as she reconnected with her parents after a two-and-a-half-year separation.


“My parents are on the verge of crossing the border. “Please think positive thoughts that everything goes smoothly,” she stated at the time on her Instagram story.

The actress subsequently shared multiple videos, including a reunion video, in which she explained her emotions over the past two and a half years while holding back tears.

“I’m angry for my kids because they’ve missed out on years of their lives and will never have those experiences,” she expressed her disappointment.

“And I’m aware that many individuals are in far worse positions.”

“However, I feel that pain is valid, and that every pain is valid, therefore we should be cautious when comparing people’s trauma or anguish, whatever it is.”

“After 2.5 years, I’m finally with my family again,” Tammin posted on Instagram after they were reunited.


“We were unable to enter Australia for about two years, and when we did, there was a surge, and the borders were blocked the second day we arrived in hotel quarantine,” she explained.

“I’m never going to let them go.” My heart goes out to you if you’re in this circumstance.”

COVID scare

Along with the border issues, the family has had a terrible year following Tammin’s husband’s COVID struggle.

After testing positive for the virus in January 2021, Sean became critically unwell.

“My hubby suffers with Covid. I’m also terrified… Tammin said on Instagram at the moment, “I felt very out of control.”

“It was a bumpy ride with a lot of ups and downs. All of the hospitals are filled, and his 103 [39.4C] fever wouldn’t go away for days.

“COVID is a real thing. It’s terrifying.

“I understand that some individuals have a cold or feel like they have a cold or the flu, but others do not.”

“And my spouse is in excellent health, and all of the hospitals are at capacity.”

Tammin surprised her family with a 10-year vow renewal after such a trying year.

Her two children, Phoenix and Lennon, were also in attendance, both dressed in white outfits.

The actress wore a lace wedding gown with floral decorations on the train and looked quite calm as she celebrated on the beach.
