The former Home and Away star Esther Anderson is one of several Aussies jetting home from overseas who are supposed to endure mandatory hotel quarantine.
The LA-based actress returned home to Down Under on November 13 and took to Instagram to reveal a painful injury that she suffered while cooperating.
Esther, 41, shared photographs of what seemed to be a split toe and another of her foot in a moon boot, captioning the article,’ Quarantine existence.’
Despite posting pictures of the injury, Esther didn’t share details of how exactly the mishap occurred.
The actor, better known for her role as Charlie Buckton, the home and away policewoman, lives in Los Angeles with her partner, Howard Moggs, and their two-year-old boy, Woodland.
Although the bright lights of Hollywood have given her acting career opportunities to flourish, Esther told New Idea last year that she still misses Australia as her home country.

There’s so much chance here in LA], and that’s where I met my husband [Howard Moggs], but there’s just a few things I miss at home,’ Esther said.
There is still a part of me that would love to be close to my family, and Howard is likely to be open to living in Australia at some point.
“Australia will always have my heart, I suppose.”
Esther admitted in May this year that the COVID-19 pandemic meant that Australia was tugging even more on her heart strings.
She told The Morning Show on Channel Seven, “It made us understand how important a family is and what’s at stake.”
“When all this is over, I will definitely cherish my time spent in Australia, and strive to spend more time at home.”
