Some very exciting news for Home and Away fans. This morning with channel 7 announcing that Kate Ritchie is reprising her iconic role
The AFI nominated five-time Logie winner (including two Gold), will make a welcome return to Home and Away in 2013.
As an eight-year-old, Kate captured the nation’s heart playing Sally Fletcher, residing in Summer Bay for 20 years. Now, after a five-year break, Kate is delighted to be returning to the show that made her a household name.
“There will be a wonderful sense of familiarity stepping back into Sally’s shoes for a while,” she says. “Summer Bay is a very different place these days and I am looking forward to working with all the fresh faces that have continued to take Home and Away from strength to strength.
“It will be a good opportunity to catch up with some old mates too! Those cast and crew I worked with for so many years are who I have missed the most.”
As the show celebrates 25 years, Kate will return for a special story arc that sees Sally welcomed back to her Summer Bay home.
Kate will commence filming in the coming weeks and the storyline will air over a number of months later this year.
Series Producer Lucy Addario says: “We are thrilled Kate is returning to Home and Away. Sally holds such a special place in the heart of the show and we trust fans will be as excited as we are to watch her story unfold and follow Sally’s journey again.”
As a long-time Home And Away fan I am excited to see this happen. But I’m also wary about how they have treated former characters time will tell Seven do not stuff this up
