Home and Away Kirby star ‘bawled eyes out’ as she read ‘heartbreaking’ exit twist

Home and Away’s Kirby Aramoana recently split from the band Lyrik to embark on a solo career and actress Angelina Thompson confessed she was in tears after reading the script

Star of Home and Away Angelina Thomson “cried uncontrollably” when discovering Kirby was leaving Lyrik.

Alongside the three other band members of Lyrik—Rob Mallet, Adam Rowland, and Stephanie Panozzo—who were cast in the roles of Bob, Remi, and Eden, Angelina debuted as Kirby in the middle of 2022. Theo (Matt Evans) joined the band as the fourth member when Bob left Summer Bay after only a few months.

She continued, “I know the grass isn’t always greener and I’m very grateful where I am.” Although being cast as Kirby was a dream come true, Angelina talked on other aspects that moviegoers might not always notice.

“But I think you often put dreams on a pedestal but the reality of the dream is very different, she said. “There are so many other things to consider when you’re actually living out the reality of that dream.”

Angelina added: “It’s difficult, it’s exhausting, it’s tricky. It feels confusing – there are lots of different elements that you could probably have warned me about before I booked the job, but I wouldn’t have listened. I would just say, ‘I want to do it, so
