Home and Away newcomer Nicholas Cartwright crashes ‘cop car really badly’ on his first day

Seven years after leaving the army, Nicholas Cartwright made his debut as Senior Constable Cash Newman on Channel Seven’s Home and Away.

And it appears that the former soldier’s first day on set in Summer Bay did not go as planned.

‘I had a fairly serious crash with the cop car,’ Nick, 33, told The Daily Telegraph on Sunday.

‘In the scene, I get out of the car, get my weapon, and there’s a scenario going on inside the structure.’ ‘However, I hear the crew start to panic.’

‘I got out of the car and put it in drive,’ he added. I’ve entirely forgotten about it. I leapt back in through the window, legs swinging out the window, trying to crank the handbrake, but it was one of those fancy new vehicles with the button handbrake, so I sat there flailing out the window till we struck the wall.’

Nick revealed that the group nicknamed him Crash Newman following his awful event.

‘Before I joined the army, I was always in creative spaces, and I just gravitated back there,’ he explained.

Nicholas admitted that putting on a mask’makes you feel a certain way, and playing a cop on the show is simply the best.’
