When Dan Ewing played Heath Braxton in Home and Away, he became well-known as the bad boy of Summer Bay.
Belonging to the River Boys gang, the actor debuted on the serial opera alongside the brothers of the characters, Daryl “Brax” Braxton and their younger sibling Casey.
He is a father to two children, but, outside of the entertainment industry.
What is Dan’s age and place of origin?
Dan turned 38 on June 3, 1985, the day he was born. He is also from New South Wales; although he was raised in Forestville, he was born in Manly.
The eldest of four siblings, he attended Marist Catholic College North Shore, where his school musical experiences inspired him to pursue acting.
What roles has Dan played?
He had previously been on Home and Away in 2007 as a character named Reuben Humpheries, thus this wasn’t his first time playing Heath.
Heath left the Summer Bay, and he came back once more in 2021, this time as a cameo with the River Boys.
In the latter part of the 2010s, Dan travelled to the US in an attempt to take market share.
He costarred with Dylan O’Brien in the 2020 film Love and Monsters as Cap, however he disclosed in 2016 that he turned down a part that would have been his big break.
According to Dan, the reason he declined the film was that, as an Australian actor, they were willing to pay him less.
He has since appeared in a number of Australian productions.
Having trouble with booze
Dan has confessed that he struggles with alcohol and turns to it as a coping mechanism for his celebrity.
“I had a lot of trouble. He commented on the ImperfectlyPerfect Podcast, “I was just some kid from the northern beaches, so to shoot to fame on the biggest show in Australia in Home and Away… I wasn’t ready.”
“I was really suffering from anxiety at the time, and I didn’t know it, but my partner wasn’t ready.”
He continued, saying, “I’d just kind of tip all this grog down my neck and get written off completely on the weekend.”
You try to pass it off as “Oh, it’s just steam blowing.” We have all engaged in it, and we all do it. However, I was simply unaware that there was a better approach and procedure.
Does Dan have a partner?
Dan was formerly wed to Marni Little, an actress. The date of their wedding was December 15, 2012. Matt Little, Marni’s brother, assumed the role of VJ Patterson while working on Home and Away.
Before divorcing in 2016, the couple welcomed their son, Archer, in September 2014.
At the moment, Dan is linked to the actress Kat Risteska. Their engagement was declared on December 24, 2021.
They named their daughter Nevaeh when they welcomed their first child together.
In honour of their seventh anniversary last month, Dan gave his fiancée a memento.
“Some things stay the same, some change,” he wrote.Who would have guessed that this would have happened after my weeks of harassment and outright stalking?
“Now, I would never support such behaviour.However, in my specific situation, it led to the meeting of the woman of my dreams and her adorable little clone, who also happens to think I’m amazing. Use that however you see fit.
Cheers to @katristeska’s seventh anniversary! It certainly honours me to be eerily fixated on my Queen for eternity.
