Death threats shake Sum­mer Bay’s Sam

The Sunday Times - - CONFIDENTIAL -

HOME and Away star Sam Frost has re­vealed she was left shocked and shaken af­ter get­ting death threats be­cause of her char­ac­ter’s dra­matic sto­ry­lines on the hit soap opera.

Frost was tar­geted per­son­ally af­ter her char­ac­ter, Jas­mine De­laney, killed off the much loved Sum­mer Bay cop played by Pia Miller.

“I re­ceived aw­ful mes­sages when I first started on Home

and Away be­cause I had killed off one of their favourite char­ac­ters,” Frost said.

“It was part of the sto­ry­line and I had death threats.

“That re­ally rocked me be­cause I thought I was on top of it all (so­cial me­dia bul­ly­ing).”

Frost said the is­sue was dealt with by Seven and she blocked and re­ported those post­ing the com­ments.

Frost, who came to promi­nence on The Bach­e­lor and The Bach­e­lorette, has spo­ken bravely about her men­tal health bat­tles and her ex­pe­ri­ences with on­line ha­rass­ment and bul­ly­ing.
