It simply goes to show you that if we all stick together and work hard, it’s worth it. I’m incredibly honored to be a member of this cast.
The crows are wrong—Home And Away got a Logie! The long-running drama series, which debuted in 1988, won the TV WEEK Logie Award for Most Popular Drama, marking the 68th trophy for the program and demonstrating how it just gets better with time.
The cast, who rejoiced in their victory while crying happy tears, wasn’t unaware of the acknowledgment.
Ray Meagher, 77, who was nominated for both the coveted Gold Logie and Most Popular Actor, says he is “humbled” by the support for not only himself but also the entire cast and crew.
The seasoned actor fought back tears as he accepted the award for Home And Away shortly after it was announced.
Alf Stewart’s actor Ray comments, “It means a hell of a lot and it’s vital to our industry.”
“For several of the young children in our presentation, this is their first Logies. It’s good that kids have the chance to do this.”
Home And Away struggled with the epidemic, which brought closures and limits on filming, like many other artists did. This makes this year’s Logie win extra-special.
Emily Symons, 52, who plays Marilyn Chambers, says it has been incredibly tough to keep the program running since “life as we know it at Home And Away has been quite terrible.”
“If we all stick together and put in the effort, it just proves to be worthwhile. I feel incredibly privileged to be a member of this cast.”
We all feel validated that we’ve been around for 30 years and that people are still enjoying it, says Lynne McGranger, 69, who has been playing Irene Roberts since 1993. Although some viewers may stop, others may start watching again. It never becomes stale.
Leah Patterson-actress Baker’s Ada Nicodemou predicted success on the red carpet ahead of the occasion.
The 45-year-old remarked, “I think we could win. I’m really proud of what we accomplished.
One thing is certain as the cast celebrates another successful year in Summer Bay: there is a hunger for local storytelling. Australians want to connect more than ever, and Home And Away is prepared to do just that.
The 57-year-old actor who portrays Roo Stewart, Georgie Parker, says, “The audience continues to support this production.” “Winning the Logie is a resounding reinforcement that we are on the right route,” said the winner.
