Home and Away veteran Lynne McGranger tells of ‘dramatic’ exit plan

Actress Lynne McGranger says she desires a “dramatic” exit after spending more than 30 years portraying Irene Roberts on Home and Away.

The 70-year-old McGranger has no immediate intentions to retire.

However, the topic of discussion has come up as a result of departure announcements from other celebrities, including Sophie Dillman and Patrick O’Connor, and a brief break from Georgie Parker.

For three decades, fans have seen McGranger’s character Irene as a gentle motherly figure and could not possibly fathom the “really sad” farewell plans the actress has for her sweet character.

She told Stuff.co.nz, “I want to go with the biggest bang, the most dramatic departure.

“I want to be lost at sea, or I want to suffer a really long, sad death, with everyone crying and wail[ing] around me.

Or Irene might drown at sea, the body would never be found, there would be a memorial ceremony and everything, and then she would just walk back into town.

Fans of Home and Away could not fathom the idea of McGranger departing the show, especially after saying goodbye to so many other characters who were cherished by the audience.

“No! I don’t want to lose you,” a member of the Home and Away secrets Facebook group wrote.

We adore you, Irene, don’t leave, the second said.

“Alf and Irene must experience a dull demise, such as old age or something. Because we’ll lose our elders or parents.” one remarked about the persona played by Ray Meagher and thespian McGranger.

Parker’s departure, while only transitory, comes after the long-term departures of two other Home and Away favorites.

In February, on-and-off-screen couple Sophie Dillman and Patrick O’Connor made their exit official and shared their intentions to begin a new phase.

O’Connor wrote in a tweet from last month, “Our time in the bay is coming to an end, remain tuned next couple weeks @homeandaway.

The day in the water with Dean and Ziggy is coming to an end. I continue to deny everything. Keep an eye out for their remaining weeks! @homeandaway #diggy #lildiggy,” Dillman wrote in a statement on another website.

Fans were quick to take to the comments, with one sharing they are “absolutely gutted you guys are leaving. Literally my favourite couple of the bay. Please don’t go”.

“Heartbreaking 💔 but excited to see what comes next for you both!!” added a second.

Dillman joined the series in 2017 while O’Connor arrived a year later
