In real-life, she is dating her on-screen boyfriend at Home And Abroad.
And now actress Sophie Dillman talked honestly about her friendship with co-star Patrick O’Connor, who stars on the soap with Dean Thompson.
She said the couple were able to find a perfect balance between their private and professional lives.
For eight years, the pair, aged 27 and 28 respectively, knew each other and also went to the same acting school in Queensland.
‘First of all, we were working partners, and it made us work well together now, so we’re fortunate in that respect,’ Sophie told TV Week.
‘We are best friends and treat each other like that, but beginning that way, it has also made our friendship better.’
Patrick added that his friendship was ‘pretty cold’ with the blonde beauty.
‘When we go out as a couple, we get spotted by people, but that [fame as a couple] hasn’t changed too much,’ he told the newspaper.
Since meeting in the Channel Seven soap, Sophie and Patrick have been heading out.
It is uncertain when things between the two got extreme.
Sophie has been a cast member for marginally longer than Patrick, since June 2017, having played Ziggy.
In the other side, Patrick joined the cast of Home And Away in 2018.
Their characters did not get along at the beginning. Over time, however, they became close friends and, finally, lovers.
Similarly, the intimate relationship between Sophie and Patrick appears to have blossomed from a friendship.
