On Home and Away, Emily Weir will soon be involved in some dramatic scenes. On Tuesday, the actress flew to Sydney’s Palm Beach to film a new episode of the soap, which necessitated the use of a body double for some of the stunts. The 30-year-old flaunted her toned figure as she slipped into a brown bikini and joined co-star Patrick O’Connor in the water.
Emily was bundled into a surf rescue raft alongside some lifesavers in uniform as she filmed the scenes. After that, she was wrapped in a warm towel and escorted off the beach by her stunt double.
Emily laughed as she was escorted away from the water, snuggled in a blue towel, and appeared to have washed off her makeup in the sea.
A water cameraman followed the buxom double into the waves because there was big surf that day.
The stunt performer, who was dressed in the same bikini as Emily, expertly navigated the waves.
Emily made her breakthrough on Home and Away in 2019 as restaurateur Mackenzie.
She had previously appeared in the 2003 television series The Sleepover Club.
In a 2019 interview with Stuff New Zealand, Emily described her casting on Home and Away as “a dream come true.”
‘It felt like I’d won the lottery for myself and my entire extended family,’ she said.
‘Home and Away is still watched by my family. It’s known as Homie. When Homie is turned on, everything goes dark. You are not permitted to make any phone calls or do anything else.’
