Following Emily Weir’s character Mackenzie Booth’s downward spiral, the cast of Home and Away has heaped praise on her.
The Summer Bay resident has been going through a rough patch since her boyfriend Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) dumped her, only to find out she was pregnant and then lose the baby due to an ectopic pregnancy.
Emily’s co-stars have paid tribute to her for her portrayal of Ziggy, who recently kissed her best friend Ziggy’s boyfriend Tane Parata (Ethan Browne), and whose downward spiral is set to continue.
“I got to hang with the divine, funny, generous, energetic, hard-working @weir.emily today,” Roo Stewart actress Georgie Parker wrote on Instagram on Thursday (June 3).
“I know Mack’s character is going through a difficult time, but this is a timely reminder that it’s all a fantasy.” “Our Em is a good egg.”
Patrick O’Connor and Sam Frost, both from Home and Away, responded in the comments.
“She’s the best,” Patrick said, adding, “And we love you, Em.” You’re doing an incredible job!! “I’m very proud of you.”
Emily previously told Digital Spy about the difficult storyline: “There’s a lot of sadness.
“Everything was fine until her boyfriend left, she discovered she was pregnant, her boyfriend went into a coma, he was reunited with his ex, and she lost her baby.
“So there are all these catastrophic events that occur, and the pressure cooker’s release bursts. Because she doesn’t feel worthy and is in so much pain, she goes into a downward spiral in which she self-destructs, pushes everyone close to her away, and severs ties with many important relationships in her life.”
