Who is Sam Frost’s hunky new Home and Away love interest Nicholas Cartwright

Sam Frost and Nicholas Cartwright have great chemistry onscreen, so it’s only natural that they’d ignite relationship rumors in real life.

Nicholas portrays Senior Constable Cash Newman on the long-running soap, and is the love interest of Sam’s Jasmine Delaney.

Rumoured romance: They have undeniable chemistry onscreen, so it’s only natural that Sam Frost and Nicholas Cartwright would spark romance rumours in real-life

On Saturday, the on-screen couple fueled romance rumors after Sam, 32, posted a series of intimate images with Nicholas on Instagram.

‘I mean, we’re basically the same person.’ Except @ nicholas cartwright_ is way funnier,’ Sam wrote in the caption.

‘Edit: This is not my boyfriend,’ she explained afterwards. This is my great friend, who also happens to be my H&A co-star…

‘However, I agree that we are gorgeous.’ ‘I’m fortunate to work with such a lovely individual who is constantly on my side.’

Nicholas spent six years in the Australian Army as a rifleman before winning his part on Home and Away.

Nicholas admitted to feeling “lost” after resigning from the army after tours in East Timor and Afghanistan.

‘When you leave the military, you can feel a little lost, and no one wants to take a regular job,’ he told PerthNow.

‘So I decided to go to NIDA [National Institute of Dramatic Art] and see what the craziest thing I could do.’

He met Ethan Browne, who plays Tane Parata on Home and Away, while studying at NIDA, and the two forged an enduring friendship.

‘I immediately thought of this man when I heard there was a search for a new cop in the bay,’ Ethan, 30, posted on Instagram shortly after Nicholas was cast.

‘Perfect for the part, and he absolutely nailed it! One of the most dedicated and deserving people I’ve ever met! ‘I’m extremely proud of you, brother.’

Nicholas confessed in a July interview with Stuff that after leaving the army, he almost took an altogether new career path.

‘When I got out, I was thinking about joining the police force or the fire department, or other government agencies that were similar to the military,’ he stated.

‘Then, as I settled into civilian life after the military, I found myself drawn to the creative arts and didn’t know what to do about it because it didn’t seem like a realistic career to me.’

‘You can kind of feel a little lost when you get out of the defence force, and no one wants to do a normal job,’ he told PerthNow

‘Then one day, I just decided to take the plunge and enroll in a three-year degree at NIDA.’


Nicholas ‘was active in acting and music from a very young age,’ according to his NIDA biography, and ‘abandoned his profession as a singer in a rock/blues band to join the Australian Army.’

Nicholas revealed to Stuff that he was still adjusting to his sudden celebrity, and that several of his co-stars had ‘given some really solid practical advise.’

On set: He paid tribute to his colleagues in a post on Instagram back in June, which showed him in the hair and makeup chair

‘The attention the program receives is beyond anything I’ve ever experienced before, but I’m extremely enthusiastic about it all, and it’s a true honour to be here,’ he added.

In a June Instagram picture, he paid respect to his coworkers by showing himself in the hair and makeup chair.

‘It takes a village,’ they say. I’m ecstatic to be moving in with my new family @homeandaway in the coming days. He remarked at the time, “Can’t thank the cast and crew enough for helping me out along the way.”
