Daddo ready for soapie action
CAMERON Daddo has made a return to acting, joining the cast of long-running soap Home And Away.
The 54-year-old TV personality, who has worked on a slew of shows including 24, Monk, CSI: Miami, Boston Legal, NCIS and The Mentalist, was this week photographed on set of the popular Channel 7 show.
“I love it. It is a great cast, the crew are exceptional and it is just really fun and easy,” Daddo (inset) told Sunday Confidential yesterday.
“This all came about after my agent heard about the role. They said ‘is this something you are interested in?’ and I said ‘absolutely’.”
Daddo, whose career in the entertainment industry spans more than three decades, shared a photo to Instagram of himself on set with Georgie Parker earlier this week.
“Any chance to catch up with my Scorched cohort @georgieparker is one that I can’t pass up! #action,’ he wrote in the caption, referencing the 2008 telemovie he and Parker starred in.
The Daddo brothers, Cameron, Lochie, Andrew and Jamie, have been a fixture on the Sydney scene for decades.
According to Cameron, all his brothers are still in the country and keeping busy.
“Andrew is very much in Sydney and around the country doing a lot of corporate work and he has just been pushing his book,” he said.
“His latest kids book is fantastic so he has been on the publicity round doing that.
“And Lochie is running his production company so he has just been in Sumatra doing work up there. Everyone is still around and busy.”
