Cariba Heine on joining Home And Away: “I got an offer via email!”
The former H2O star is ready to shake up Summer Bay.
Home and Away newcomer Cariba Heine rolled into Summer Bay last week and her character, Ebony has a sinister agenda. She’s sister of big, bad Boyd (Steve Le Marquand) and she is out for revenge following his shocking demise. The vengeful woman hopes to befriend policeman Colby (Tim Franklin), who shot her brother. At the same time, friends will become foes as Ebony spins a web of lies. But how far will she go for revenge? Ahead of Ebony’s debut we chat to the former H2O and Dance Academy star about what we can expect from her crazed character.
Welcome to Home And Away. How did the role come about?
I auditioned via tape from overseas. A few weeks later, I was at the Toronto Film Festival and got an offer via email!
Tell us about Ebony.
She’s a real piece of work. She doesn’t think twice about taking a wrecking ball to someone’s life if they’re in her way. I wouldn’t want to know her.
Does playing the villain scare or excite you?
I’m so excited – it’s a lot of fun. She’s pretty despicable, so I hope she gets a rise out of people!
So, what else can we expect from Ebony? Cariba’s co-star, Tim Franklin, says Ebony is a woman on a mission.
“Ebony is after anyone and everyone who had anything to do with Boyd’s death,” Tim, 27, tells TV WEEK.
And he says she’ll stop at nothing to get what she wants! In an intense week in Home And Away, Ebony even pierces the tyres of her own car to get cop Colby’s attention. “She’s pretty specific about who she wants to take down,” he says. “Revenge is her game, and she won’t stop until she wins.” Uh-oh! Watch out, Summer Bay!
Episodes to air after the break will also introduce us to another new character involved in the kidnapping—Ebony, played by Cariba Heine. In a dramatic promo which aired in some regions after the finale, Ebony is seen with a wealth of photos and information on Justin, Brody, Ava, Tori, Willow, Colby and Dean, commenting that she will “make every one of them pay”, with Hazel also stating that they should burn them to the ground. As the search for Ava intensifies with news coverage and police searches, Ebony is seen seemingly concocting a series of elaborate plans to reel in those on her list. Whilst we don’t know much about the Bay’s newest villain, her connection with the Easton family means she’s likely looking for revenge after the way Justin treated Boyd – and that can’t end well.
Cariba was again written about in Daily Mail Australia about her debut on Home and Away. You can read the new article about her role here. She was filming in a polka dot bikini with Tim Franklin. I am so curious what will her character be like because all those bts photos look very interesting! Cariba is believed to be making her debut in early 2018.
