HOME AND AWAY STAR ANNOUNCES SHOCK DEPARTURE FROM THE SHOW

Penny McNamee, the star of Home and Away, has announced her retirement from the show.

Since 2016, the Australian actress has played Tori Morgan on the soap opera.

The 38-year-old explained her decision to depart to Who Magazine, stating she wanted to spend more time with her family and concentrate on her singing career.

She said: “I’m not someone who looks backward. I’m a real believer in everything has its season and leaving the show felt like the end of a season to me.”

Tori’s narrative will conclude with a storybook wedding to her lover Christian, and she will then relocate to London.

Penny said: “Who doesn’t love a wedding storyline? It’s the perfect send-off for my character. I was definitely holding a few real tears back on the day.”

Speaking on her character, Penny said: “Being gifted such an amazing character was incredible. She was a career woman, a doctor, she’d lost both her parents, and she opted to have a baby on her own.”

“It was a challenge to play this complicated woman every day but I loved it, too.”

She added: “I’m going to miss the banter on-set between the cast and crew so much. Because he plays my brother Justin, I’ve had a lot of scenes with James Stewart. He and the crew would make me belly laugh 20 times a day!”
