Home and Away Tane star almost quit acting after welcoming daughter at 16


At sixteen, Ethan Browne of Home and Away gave up acting to become a parent.

Although he began playing Tane Parata in 2020, the actor’s professional path nearly took a very other turn. Ethan chose to become a civil engineer instead of an actor when his daughter Aaylah was born.

The soap star relocated to Australia to pursue acting studies almost ten years after leaving New Zealand. Before enrolling at Sydney’s National Institute of Dramatic Arts, he lived briefly in Brisbane.

Ethan’s first significant acting role came shortly after graduation when he secured a three-year deal with Home and Away. Even though he fulfilled his aim of being an actor, moving to Australia caused him to be apart from 15-year-old Aaylah during COVID-19.


For almost a year, Ethan was unable to meet his daughter in person due to restrictions that prevented him from travelling. When he eventually made it to his flight in December 2020, he posted pictures of their reunion to Instagram.

Ethan showed his daughter how tough the distance was for them in the heartfelt video, giving her a kiss on the head and an embrace.

“Surprising my daughter after almost a year apart,” he said at the outset. An occasion about which I had long daydreamed and fantasised.

“The difficulty of this stretch is beyond words. It is both inexplicable and unfathomable. Our freedom to travel freely and spend time with our loved ones in person has been taken away by COVID.”


Ethan continued, expressing his thankfulness for the opportunity to be with his child once more, saying, “But love is more than physical, and the time and distance have only made our relationship stronger. Now that we are here, our hearts are once more full.

“I send all my love and strength to the parents who have been forced to spend Christmas apart from their children due to the events of this year, as well as to those who are unable to visit their loved ones this holiday season. You are everything to me, my daughter. #MyLove #MyLife #MyAngel.”
