Steve Peacocke to depart Home and Away

Everyone’s favorite Home and Away bad boy is leaving the bay.

Two time Gold Logie nominee Steve Peacocke has revealed he will leave the soap later this year.

It wasn’t something I was looking forward to because I love the show and the people I work with so much,” Peacocke said.

“But I think the key to any good TV series or any good storytelling is to leave the audience at the right point, and where we got to with Brax, we hit a point where it was the best point for him to exit the show. It was just the perfect time I guess.”

Peacocke intends to try his luck in Hollywood  after getting a small taste of it thanks to his role in  the Brett Ratner blockbuster Hercules last year.

His departure marks the end of the original River Boys on the show following Dan Ewing and Lincoln Younes departures  last year.

Steve                         filmed his final scenes in December and is expected to be on screen till at least April.

Home and Away returns to Seven tomorrow night at 7 PM.
