In-Home and Away, actor James Stewart plays Justin Morgan. And the 46-year-old actor broke character on Wednesday to play the biggest part of his life, giving his father an eight-year-old daughter, Scout.
His lookalike baby, who he shares with Logie-winning Love Child star, Jessica Marais, was spotted tenderly chatting with the actor.
James looked excited to see Scout talking with her father happily while waiting in the wings of the set in Palm Beach.
When her father was shooting scenes, Scout looked dutiful as she held a bottle filled with water as well as an iPad.
He checked in at one point to see if she was okay with the young person happily nodding as she waited in ‘Summer Bay.’
As the pair played out their scenes as they strolled along with the lawn, James kept hands with Home and Away veteran Ada Nicodemou. During the scenes, Ada watched James adoringly.
With a pair of semi-faded blue jeans, James chose to wear a simple white V-neck t-shirt. He completed the look with a pair of tan sneakers. Meanwhile, along with a pair of thigh-grazing floral shorts, Ada had a burnt orange singleton.
A pair of white sneakers, sunglasses, and a trendy crossbody bag completed her look.
In a high ponytail, Ada was wearing her brunette hair. Just recently, while speaking to The Daily Telegraph in September, James spoke about how the pandemic had wreaked havoc on his waistline.
The Home and Away star told the publication, ‘I went from 95 kg to 104 kg in the first six weeks of ISO, to be honest.’
“The chicken burgers and kebabs were my favorite snacks. Every day, and a glass or two of wine every other day, I will take comfort in a bowl of ice cream.’
The star says that when his lifestyle started impacting his family, he finally decided enough is enough. ‘It was when my mom, Sarah, was able to tell me that I was waking up heavier and without my normal zest for life,’ he said to the paper.
‘And my daughter Scout was also beginning to pursue me down the road of poor eating habits and not getting a lot of exercises,’ he said. James made a list of things he should and can’t eat to get back in shape, based on a nutritionist’s recommendations, and made sure to exercise once a day.
He was also inspired by his family, telling himself that he did it for them, but emphasized that it was important to have a cheat day and not all the treats had to go. Fellow Home and Away star Sarah Roberts, 35, is James’ wife.
Last year, Sarah and James tied the knot at Luttrellstown Castle, just outside Dublin, Ireland.
In an interview with Now To Love, the couple recently disclosed specifics of their big day.
‘It was special indeed. “We were married in a palace, I think it’s a dream come true,” Sarah told the press release.
