Ac­tor com­ing Home

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

WHILE he lights up our screens on Home and Away ev­ery evening, Johnny Ruffo has not for­got­ten where he came from.

The boy from Bal­catta was re­cently home for his 10-year high school re­union and will re­turn to Perth next month for Polo in the Val­ley on April 19.

Cur­rently work­ing on new mu­sic, Ruffo said he was look­ing for­ward to com­ing home and sup­port­ing Telethon as part of his ap­pear­ance in the Telethon Ad­ven­tur­ers Mar­quee.

“It will be my third time from mem­ory,” he said.

“I’m a big sup­porter of Telethon and Princess Margaret Hos­pi­tal, so any­thing I can do to give back, it’s a great rea­son to do so.”

Hav­ing taken a break from mu­sic for a while, Ruffo said he was ex­cited to be back where it all be­gan and could not wait to re­lease some of the songs he had been work­ing on.

“I took a bit of time off mu­sic and fo­cused on that, which is great, but I’m re­ally happy with what I’m do­ing at the mo­ment on­screen and film­ing, so I de­cided to jump back into the studio ear­lier this year and have been flat out,” he said.

“I have a lot of new mu­sic com­ing out and will be film­ing a mu­sic video in April.”

Hop­ing to re­lease the new sin­gle in Perth, Ruffo said it was im­por­tant to be with the peo­ple who sup­ported him from the be­gin­ning.

“I’m go­ing to come back and do quite a few per­for­mances. We might even do the launch there for the new sin­gle,” he said.

Ruffo will at­tend the Polo in the Val­ley with fel­low Home and Away star Nic West­away and Telethon Ad­ven­turer’s am­bas­sador and for­mer Packed to the Rafters star Ge­orge Hou­var­das.
