The West Australian - - NEWS - VANESSA WIL­LIAMS

Sum­mer Bay has a new stun­ner about to join its ranks. Brunette bomb­shell Emily Weir is about to make her de­but on Home and Away this month in what will be her first ma­jor TV role. Join­ing the se­ries as the fierce and mys­te­ri­ous new­comer Macken­zie, who steps in as the new owner of lo­cal restau­rant Salt, Weir said she was thrilled to be a part of Seven’s pop­u­lar week­day soap. “I know peo­ple say it all the time but there’s some­thing about the en­tire Home and Away or­gan­i­sa­tion,” she told New Idea. “It re­ally is such a fan­tas­tic place to work and there’s a real sense of fam­ily.” Bris­bane-born Weir, who stud­ied act­ing at the Queensland Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy be­fore re­lo­cat­ing to Syd­ney more than three years ago, said her fam­ily could not be hap­pier about her new TV gig. “They couldn’t be­lieve it,” she said. “Hope­fully I’ll be able to get them into the stu­dio soon and they can meet some of the cast.” Asked about her re­la­tion­ship sta­tus, Weir con­firmed she’s still sin­gle. “It’s just me, and that’s ac­tu­ally been sort of per­fect at this stage of my life,” she said.
