Home and Away 2017 stars Philippa Northeast and Alec Snow have shared their thoughts about leaving Summer Bay.
In a two-part video shared by Network Seven, the two talked about their favorite storylines and memories in the show. Northeast (Evie MacGuire) and Snow (Matt Page) also discussed how they feel about their exit and what would they miss most about the show.
Snow admitted that he will miss the friendly atmosphere on the set of Home and Away. He said:
“I will miss coming to work at such a friendly place. Because Home and Away has been going on so long, it’s such a nice atmosphere and everyone is such good friends.”
Both are happy though on how their exit was written. Evie and Matt bid their goodbye to their loved ones in Summer Bay in an emotional country wedding this week. The two will then head to Vietnam to start their own family.
Before leaving the town, Matt apologized to Leah (Ada Nicodemou), who got upset after she found out that the former knew about Zac’s (Charlie Clausen) infidelity. Leah eventually forgave Matt. Evie also talked to Zac and urged him to fight for Leah.
Meanwhile, Northeast admitted that she was pleased on how her character finally found true love happiness after a rocky year. Last year, Evie lost her brother Oscar and aunt Hannah in a caravan fire. Her boyfriend Josh also left her after he confessed on killing Charlotte King. The actress said in the clip:
“I was really happy that it was a happy, beautiful ending because Evie has been through so much loss and mourning.”
Both Snow and Northeast first appeared on the show in 2013.
