Fans of both teams will never forget the River Boys’ impact on the peaceful beach hamlet of Summer Bay.
When the Braxton brothers Heath, Brax, and Casey first debuted on our screens in 2011, displaying his soon-to-be legendary “Blood and Sand” tattoo, they were known to be quite the heart throbs of the area.
He finished filming his final sequences in late 2014 and made his final on-screen appearance on June 10, 2015, with his character generating a lot of trouble in town throughout the years, including a 15-year sentence for manslaughter.
Brax, who was played by actor Steve Peacocke and won the Logie Awards for Most Popular New Male Talent and Most Popular Actor, was a hugely popular character, and we’re checking in on what he’s been up to since leaving the programme in 2015.
The actor quit the show to seek greater on-screen possibilities in Hollywood, but his closing scenes in Home and Away have left the door open for a future comeback.
However, the actor has stated several times that a return to Home and Away is not on the cards for him because his priority is to work on other projects.
Following his departure from Home and Away, he appeared in a number of shows and films, including Stephanos in Hercules with Dwyane ‘The Rock’ Johnson in 2014, Nic in Tina Fey’s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot in 2016, and acted in Me Before You with Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke in 2016.
Because of his enormous popularity in Ireland, he was able to get a number of paid nightlife appearances in cities all around the country.
In 2015, he went on a “farewell tour” across the country, doing Q&A sessions at the Hillgrove in Kerry, Garavogue in Sligo, and The Foundry on John Street in Waterford.
The actor has been in a long-term relationship for the past 13 years.
Steve has been in love with actress Bridgette Sneddon since 2005, when they met while studying acting at the University of Western Sydney.
From 2014 to 2015, Bridgette played Sophie Taylor on Home and Away. The couple had to defend their relationship against unsubstantiated rumours that Steve and his co-star Bonnie Sveen, who plays his on-screen girlfriend Ricky Sharpe, had “off-screen chemistry.”
The couple is quite private, with Steve telling News Corp Australia that the rumours are “bizarre” and “annoying.”
On the 7th of March 2014, Bridgette and Steve announced their engagement, and on the 24th of December 2014, they married in a private ceremony surrounded by family and friends.
The pair does not have any children at this time in their lives because they are both very focused on their work.
