Former Home and Away star Bob Morley says sudden fame was ‘difficult to process’

At the age of 21, he began his career on Home and Away as the iconic bad boy Drew Curtis.

And now, Australian actor Bob Morley has opened up about the influence of celebrity on his early career.

‘For me, it was very difficult to process, the lack of anonymity,’ the now 37-year-old told TV Week.

Morley stepped into Drew Curtis’ shoes for two years before departing Summer Bay at the end of 2008.

Soon after his departure, he chastised Home and Away, telling The Daily Telegraph that he believed the show treated him like a “meat puppet.”

When he made the remarks, the actor, who was appearing in the Australian drama series The Strip at the time, said he was delighted he was now on a show “where it’s not predicated on taking your shirt off.”

‘It wasn’t a good place to be in. Home and Away is a great place to learn, but it’s a machine and it can chew people up and spit them out. I stepped out not really caring whether I had another job,’ he said.

In a 2014 interview with News.com.au, Bob apologized for his words, admitting he was being ‘totally and absolutely disrespectful’ at the time.

‘I’m still young and dumb, but I was even younger and dumber then,’ he said.

‘Now that I think about it, that’s one of the things I regret doing throughout the years.’ It was only my lack of knowledge and experience that I put upon them.’

‘They were nothing but great and kind to me and looked after me,’ he added.

In 2020, Bob finished his role as Bellamy Blake in the American post-apocalyptic series The 100, which he co-starred in with his wife, fellow Australian Eliza Taylor.

He will now star in the Australian miniseries Love Me, which will “examine modern love as experienced by various family members at various stages of life.”

Peter, a model and the father of a 15-year-old kid, is played by Bob. Hugo Weaving and Bojana Novakovic also star in the show.
