Eve out de­spite Lo­gie chances

The West Australian - - TODAY -

Eve Morey will likely not re­turn to act­ing, de­spite be­ing nom­i­nated for a Gold Lo­gie. The 36-year-old former Neigh­bours star was shocked when she was an­nounced last month as one of seven nom­i­nees for the cov­eted most pop­u­lar per­son­al­ity award.

She also earned a nom­i­na­tion for most pop­u­lar ac­tress, with the win­ners to be an­nounced on the Gold Coast on June 30.

It came af­ter Morey’s char­ac­ter, Sonya Re­bec­chi, died af­ter a bat­tle with ovar­ian can­cer on Neigh­bours this year af­ter a decade on screen, and her co-stars launched a cam­paign to get her nom­i­nated for a Lo­gie.

Hav­ing fin­ished with the soapie, Morey stepped away from act­ing to be at home with her hus­band — fel­low Neigh­bours ac­tor Jonathan Dut­ton – and their two young chil­dren.

“It re­ally for me feels like it’s

come out of nowhere,” Morey said. “I’ve been do­ing a bit of drama coach­ing, be­ing at home, do­ing a bit of work with hus­band on his com­pany.

“I’m not even on the radar.” Morey said her Gold Lo­gie nom­i­na­tion would likely not en­tice her to re­turn to act­ing but would in­stead be the per­fect way to cap off her Neigh­bours ex­pe­ri­ence.

“I want to stay in Aus­tralia,” she re­vealed.

“My thought was mov­ing away from act­ing and get­ting more into coach­ing.

“And I wanted to do stuff around in­ti­macy co-or­di­na­tion and things like that.

“I re­ally just want to tell good sto­ries.

“If op­por­tu­ni­ties came up that were is­sue-based sto­ries that were try­ing to say some­thing of pur­pose, then that’s amaz­ing, but I’m also happy to step away and be with my kids and work on some other things.”

‘It’s come out of nowhere . . . I’m not even on the radar.’

Former Neigh­bours star Eve Morey has ruled out a re­turn to act­ing.
