Home and Away star Jacqui Purvis reveals she wants her character Felicity to die ‘a really intense gory death’ on the long-running soap
Felicity Newman, a beloved character on Home and Away, is depicted imprisoned inside a burning automobile in the trailers for the upcoming season.
While the actress Jacqui Purvis is keeping quiet about the result, she did tell Yahoo! Lifestyle that if necessary, she’d love to leave the show with a bang.
“[I]’d want to be eliminated…” She told the publication, “I want a really dramatic death, like a really, intense, horrible, like everyone’s crying death.”

Jacqui was later asked in the interview how long she planned on hanging around Summer Bay – a subject she quickly skirted.
‘Who knows?’ she replied coyly.
‘I mean, you get offered this role, this experience and as an actor, it’s incredible…you’re acting every day, which is an actor’s dream and having a consistent job is very rare in this industry,’ she added.
Felicity’s on-screen nuptials to Ethan Browne’s Tane, who she married this year, were one of the major difficulties Jacqui encountered.
Because it’s such an important event in someone’s life and I’ve never been married before, she added, “It felt cool, but also incredibly bizarre.”
I felt as though I had nothing to relate to. I don’t have any references at my disposal. Therefore, I was attempting to determine how you might behave in a wedding.
Jacqui had a warm welcome when she arrived in Summer Bay playing the challenging part of Felicity, police constable Cash Newman’s sister.
Since then, authors have included her in a variety of plots, from being a victim of an abduction to having the safety of her life threatened following a terrible car accident.
Channel Seven will air Home and Away again in the coming year.
