THE TRUTH BEHIND THE TATTS
SEVERAL hours sitting in a makeup chair having distinctive tattoos applied was a bit like “Batman putting his cape on”, actor Dan Ewing says.
It’s been a few years since he’s looked like his Home and Away character Heath Braxton – a bad boy with a penchant for body ink. “I almost missed them in some ways,” Ewing laughs.
“Heath speaks so differently to me but I find it easier to pick up that way of speaking when the tatts are on.”
According to the script, Heath and his partner Bianca (Lisa Gormley) have been living in “the city” with their kids since both actors left the show.
“I’d suggest he thinks about removing a few tattoos,” Ewing jokes.
“He has a teenage daughter now. If I was him, I’d get rid of the grenade on his neck and the gun on his back. He’s going to parentteacher nights now, after all.”
