From reel life to real life: Patrick O’Connor and Sophie Dillman’s relationship in pictures

Summer Bay has long been a breeding ground for the romance-finding stars of Home and Away.

The newly married James Stewart and Sarah Roberts, Bec Hewitt (nee Cartwright) and Beau Brady, Luke Mitchell and Rebecca Breeds, Chris Hemsworth and Isabel Lucas are all among the Home and Away stars to entertain fans by dating while the cameras weren’t rolling.

Sophie Dillman and Patrick O’Connor are only the latest co-stars to find love when starring in the popular show together.
But Sophie and Patrick, unlike many of their fellow lovebirds, actually met long before stepping into the fictional little town.

“We actually knew each other at uni – we went to acting school together years ago,

“We were friends then, and then we were in different years, so we didn’t really see each other – but then when found each other on the show. And conveniently, our characters got together on the show.”

In September, the heart-wrenching break-up scenes of Sophie and her real-life boyfriend Patrick’s on-screen characters Ziggy and Dean were aired.

And although many supporters struggled with their division, Sophie says they were able to distinguish the fictitious plot that had some influence on their personal lives.

“We’re both actors by profession so our aim was to make it the best work that we could do and we were really proud for doing that,”We are both actors by profession, so our mission was to make it the best job we could do and we were really proud of doing that.

Dean and Ziggy, much to the dismay of heartbroken fans, look to move on from each other. Who knows what 2021 might bring, though.

This year, Dean was put through the ringer. But ideally, fans will be able to see why things ended up where they are between them, “Dean has been put through the wringer this year. But hopefully, fans can see why things have ended up where they are between them,”

The pair, both of whom were born in Queensland, now live in Sydney together and have been working closely on the set for years.

In their social life, the fun they have spills over and the pair are never afraid to share with their followers lighthearted selfies.

In the days after Christmas, the loved-up couple rang out in the festive season together with Patrick sharing this romantic beach selfie with his girlfriend.
