Channel Seven Network says it ‘respects’ star’s decision to leave ahead of Covid vaccine mandate

The Seven Network has confirmed Sam Frost has left Home and Away.

‘We support and appreciate Sam’s choice to leave Home and Away,’ a spokeswoman said of her departure on Friday. Sam departs with our heartfelt gratitude and best wishes for the future.’

Sam, 32, who has portrayed nurse Jasmine Delaney on the long-running serial since 2017, left two months after receiving outrage in October after revealing she had not received the Covid-19 vaccine.

Her departure comes just weeks before the deadline for all actors, staff, and presenters to be double-vaccinated, which is set for January 10th.

However, a source told the Daily Mail Australia that this isn’t the case. Sam’s choice to depart had nothing to do with the network’s vaccination policy.

The role of Jasmine will not be recast.

On Thursday, Sam was photographed looking upbeat while filming her final scenes on location in Sydney’s Palm Beach.

Despite the fact that she still has a few interior scenes to shoot at Eveleigh Studios on Friday, it’s likely that this was her character’s final visit to Summer Bay.

She was joined on set by co-stars Kirsty Marillier, Jacqui Purvis, and Nicholas Cartwright.

After their day on set, Sam and Nicholas documented their night out on Instagram Stories.

One video showed Nic inhaling from a hookah pipe alongside the caption ‘Celebrate!’

After Seven Productions issued a vaccine mandate for all actors, staff, and presenters, Sam quit Home and Away on January 10.

In an emotional Instagram video posted in early October, the former Bachelorette confessed she was unvaccinated.

She also admitted she was having mental health issues as a result of people criticizing her immunization status.

‘I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing, but I feel like it’s getting to a point now in the world where there’s a lot of segregation,’ she said.

‘There’s a lot of harsh judgment and opinions being thrown around a lot and it’s taking its toll on my mental health for sure, and I know people around me are struggling – particularly if they’re on the side of they don’t want to get vaccinated, for whatever reason.

‘There are lots of different reasons why people are not getting vaccinated and it might be because of their medical history, their concerns, they might have a family history, it could be religious reasons.’

Sam then claimed she hadn’t been vaccinated, but that she had discussed her option with her doctor and a psychotherapist.

‘It’s a really hard moment to be in society right now, and you feel like you’re less of a human, and you feel like others criticize you,’ she continued bitterly.

‘And you’re too afraid to express your thoughts or sentiments, and a part of you wants to leave,’ “It’s none of your business why I’m not here! And there are valid reasons for this, and I don’t want you to pass judgment on me.”

‘I’m struggling a lot with my mental health and I like to think that I’m pretty on to it. I see a psychologist regularly. So I can’t imagine what it’s like for people who don’t have a support network around them.’

Her video sparked a firestorm of criticism, largely due to her use of the word “segregation” to describe how society “judges” unvaccinated people.

‘Segregation’ is typically used to describe societies that are divided due to race, religion or sexual orientation.

In the following weeks, Sam was pictured on the Palm Beach set of Home and Away.

However, Seven announced a vaccine mandate across all shows in late October.

From January 10, the network would “only engage fully vaccinated presenters, actors, and crew,” putting Sam in a difficult situation.

On November 2, she certified that she would be fully vaccinated by late February, around seven weeks after the vaccine mandate takes effect.

In the meanwhile, she claimed, her character would be ‘written out temporarily.’

She claimed she couldn’t have the shot sooner because of an unspecified medical operation scheduled for January.’

She also stated that she would not be leaving the soap indefinitely and that she has the full backing of Seven executives.
