Coffee helps when career is brewing
FORMER Home and Away star has a tip for every aspiring Hollywood actor: learn how to make a good cup of coffee.
After departing the Channel 7 soap in 2012, Whitehead moved to the US. Despite scoring a role on TV’s Shameless in 2014, he soon hit a work drought and “ran out of money”.
He turned to bar work for several months to keep the cash flowing.

On their way to Europe for a holiday, Elliott surprised Love with a stopover in Singapore.
“Lee and I take our anniversary from when our finale was filmed, or as he likes to put it, when I stopped dating his mate,” Love said.

He heads to Poland today to film the series, which will air next year. “I flew back to Melbourne to do an audition a couple of weeks ago and then got the phone call that I am going to be the host,” Whitehead said. “I am over the moon. “Stepping into a new genre I am nervous but I am super excited.” 24 hours there and to stay in the same hotel that we filmed the finale at last year.

Love is also preparing for further appearances on Channel 10’s Studio 10 panel show and has a new TV travel venture pending.
