Elsewhere in the interview, the soap star says that Home and Away devotees have a treat coming in next year’s season of the show. 

When asked what’s next for her character, Leah Patterson she said: ‘The fans may finally get what they have been asking for a while’.  

Nicodemou has played Leah for over 20 years since her debut in 2000, and she said her recent storylines were the toughest to play out on screen.

‘It was a wonderful opportunity to sink my teeth into the story, but it was very draining,’ she told TV Week.

‘It amazes me that Ada has been doing this for a while and still finds performances like she does,’ he remarked.
