The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

AUSSIE ac­tor, Home And Away’s Steve Pea­cocke (pic­tured), has been cast in the new Dwayne John­son ac­tion flick Her­cules: The Thra­cian Wars. The Aussie ac­tor has nabbed the sup­port­ing role of Stephanos in the movie, di­rected by Brett Rat­ner ( Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand). He will com­plete film­ing in Bu­dapest, Hun­gary, with co-stars in­clud­ing John­son (aka The Rock), John Hurt and Ian McShane, be­fore re­turn­ing to Aus­tralia in Septem­ber to con­tinue his role as Brax in Home And Away. Pea­cocke says he’s grate­ful Seven is giv­ing him time off, al­low­ing him to be a part of the movie. ‘‘This is an in­cred­i­ble op­por­tu­nity for me to ex­pe­ri­ence film on a mas­sive scale, work with a world-class di­rec­tor, ac­tors and two of the big­gest stu­dios in the world,’’ he says. Home and Away pro­ducer Lucy Ad­dario is ‘‘thrilled’’ they can sup­port Pea­cocke. ‘‘Steve is a truly great ac­tor so it is no sur­prise that Hol­ly­wood has come call­ing,’’ she says.

Home and Away: Week­nights, 7pm, Seven, Prime7. Her­cules: The Thra­cian Wars is set for a July 2014 re­lease through Para­mount/MGM stu­dios.
