Meet Summer Bay’s newest resident! Stunning actress Kirsty Marillier is the latest to join the cast of Home and Away and hopes the long-running soap is her ticket to Hollywood stardom
Home and Away has been the training ground for countless Aussie actors who have gone on to make it big in Hollywood.
And actress Kirsty Marillier is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Chris Hemsworth, Isla Fisher and Melissa George, as she makes her big debut as the soap’s new character Rose.
‘It is really like that big break you crave and wish for as a student and young actor,’ she told The Daily Telegraph.

While she has only spent five weeks on the set of the show, Marillier is hoping that the big break is her ticket to Tinsel Town.
‘Getting to shoot this amount of content, the amount I’ve already done already, is an experience that will make me prepared for Hollywood, prepared for America, and just a really strong working actor, which is what I’ve always wanted to be.
‘I feel like I will grow so much being in Summer Bay,’ she added.
According to Kirsty’s IMDB, she previously had a guest role on the series in 2018, but her new character will show up on screens early next year.
Marillier has worked in the theatre sector in the past, with her most recent being the stage production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in Melbourne.
