The actress opens up about her upbringing. – written by Catie Powers
Penny McNamee of Home And Away has written a sweet tribute to her parents and family home, giving fans a sweet glimpse into her childhood.
Penny, 38, took to Instagram to share a series of never-before-seen pictures of the property where she grew up, which included a swing, freshly cut grass, and a stunning view.
The actress wrote, To accompany the stunning images, Mum and Dad have been married for 35 years and have lived on the same farm. Going home on Sundays is a magical experience. It’s the grass. The horizon. The unpleasant odour ..
The star was soon inundated with messages from awe-struck fans who marvelled in the serenity of the pictures. A few of Penny’s close friends were visible in the comments, eager to share their memories of the estate.
So many fond memories of long afternoons playing under those trees, wrote one of the Home & Away star’s old pals. Pen, you take such lovely pictures. It seems like a long time ago!
Penny responded quickly to the nostalgic post, saying, Such lovely memories of you too:) xxx.
Penny responded, Some of my best childhood memories are with you all – building forts!” to another friend who fondly remembered the house, writing, “Beautiful memories there with you all.
Postie bike under the fence is a third fond memory. Penny replied cryptically, Give me the medical bill. I have so many wonderful memories there x.
Among the sweet memories were comments from Penny’s fans who couldn’t get over the property’s elegance, describing it as “so peaceful.” We’d have to agree, though Penny might disagree.
Penny admitted that her upbringing was far from idyllic when she spoke exclusively to New Idea earlier this year.
Penny revealed that growing up with a large family was chaotic, before clarifying that it was the best kind of chaos, with plenty of laughter and fun.
The mother-of-two currently portrays Tori Morgan on the iconic soap Home & Away, and she is ecstatic about her role.
Penny said in the same interview, It’s been five years since I joined Home and Away, and it’s one of the best jobs I’ve ever had. It’s a job I’ll always cherish and remember fondly in the years to come.
