After being made fun of for his appearance by internet trolls, a well-known actor from Home and Away has acknowledged having health problems.

The Australian actor Kyle Shilling, who plays the attractive Mali in the Channel 5 series, opened up on Instagram on Friday, March 22, about his health issues. He informed his followers in the message that an auto-immune condition had been identified in him.

Shilling, who has been a cast member since 2023, said he was compelled to discuss his health issues when a number of viewers voiced concerns about his facial hair. The actor, who made history as the first indigenous star on the show, noted that the ailment caused him to grow facial hair.

“For all those Home and Away fans complaining about my beard line,” he said in the post. I was just diagnosed with alopecia in the area of my neck and beard.

“Alopecia is a hair loss disease which can be caused by stress,” he said. “The makeup team at Home and Away do the best they can do to cover up this ‘insecurity’ I now have.”

Shilling acknowledged that “for now it is what it is,” but added that he is undergoing treatment to help prevent the illness from spreading to other areas of his body. Kyle added that he didn’t want people to feel sorry for him, but rather to raise awareness about alopecia and the effects it may have on those who have the disorder.

Since December of last year, Kyle has been a cast member, playing the part of Mali Hudson. When the handsome actor revealed that he would be joining the cast more regularly, he beamingly expressed his happiness.

It’s official, gentlemen and ladies. “I’m excited to join the incredible cast and crew of Home and Away,” he exclaimed, rejoicing in his new role.
