Ada Nicodemou, star of Home and Away, stunned viewers with a “intense” behind-the-scenes glimpse of the popular Channel 7 show.
The 46-year-old shared a video of herself and her co-star James Stewart, looking bloody and wounded with realistic-looking makeup.
They are a part of an astonishing Home and Away plot, which explains their messy and dishevelled appearance.
After winning a luxurious vacation, Leah (Ada) and Justin (James) are ready to enjoy the time of their lives—until they are abducted and held captive for days without access to food, water, or plumbing.
Even with the tragic plot, when the cameras were not rolling, neither actor could hold back their laughs.
Ada remarked in the video, which she uploaded on Thursday, “Well, another one bites the dust.”
I wanted to share some entertaining BTS videos from tonight’s chaotic episodes. 😂 “Tune in to @channel7 🙏🏼, it’s on now,” she said as the post’s caption.
In response to the video, fans dubbed the scene “intense.”
“Looking like hell,” someone said, referring to their battered looks.
“Both of you are amazing actors and actresses. ♤️ had me gripped from beginning to end,” another remarked.
“How did you get there? I missed something,” one person enquired.
Outstanding! Another said, “I love watching the behind-the-scenes jokes and then the thrilling TV version.”
Ada joked that she “hates” the grime and makeup needed for these sequences as the actresses discussed the plot with The Morning Show on Thursday.
She said, “I’ve told the writers that’s it; going forwards, I can only look glamorous.”
“No, but you know, it was really great shooting this because for weeks on end, it was just the two of us, so it felt like we were doing a movie.”
Hosts Kylie Gillies and Larry Emdur shared never-before-seen pictures of Ada and James when they were younger.
The most astounding images, though, were of James and his twin brother Nicholas.
The same two were seen looking straight at the camera in one picture with cute bowl-cut hairdo.
Another picture showed them together as older guys, with their hair styled long and adopting a similar hands-in-pocket stance.
As the pictures appeared, Larry made a joke, asking, “Were you the naughty one or the cool one because there’s always a naughty one.”
Yeah, James said, “we switched.”
We traded all the time. We laid blame on one another.
Let me just say that most people experience a period of dorkiness. Once again, the screen displayed James and his brother enjoying long hair and a bohemian atmosphere. “I’m not seeing your dorky phase,” Kylie exclaimed.
Larry chuckled, “We’re only halfway through the photos.”
At that moment, an absolutely stunning picture appeared, leaving Kylie looking shocked.
Kylie explained to James, “You and your brother are twins, which people may or may not realise.”
But your girls practically seem like twins, and you both have girls. Observe this picture!
In fact, the picture in question featured Scout, James’ daughter from his divorce with Jessica Marais, smiling with her uncle, dad, and cousin Grace.
Yes, their separation is roughly 14 months. James said, “The girls have the same DNA in them because Nick and I have the same DNA.”
It has to do with science. I won’t get into it, but don’t they look precisely the same?
“I was like, ‘Wow,’ when I saw that picture. Did they always have the same appearance even as children?
James acknowledged that they were “very similar and like two peas in a pod.”
