Home and Away star Lynne McGranger reveals she suffered from an eating disorder and performed while high on marijuana in tell-all biography

In her new biography, Acting Up, Lynne McGranger will reveal truths from her background.

The Home and Away actress, 68, told The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday that the book will include details about her previous marijuana addiction and weight issue.

The actress, who quit using cigarettes and marijuana in 2005, admits she had a serious problem and even worked while high.

‘I’ve done stoned theatre, but not Home And Away.’ ‘I didn’t drink,’ she explained,’so that was my wine.’

Lynne, who has been playing Irene Roberts on the serial series for almost 28 years, admitted to growing the illicit plant in her backyard.

‘It’ll be really scandalous, and it wasn’t even close’ (of marijuana). I smoked a lot of marijuana. It was fantastic. ‘I’d smoke joints,’ she said.

Between the ages of 15 and 28, the actress confessed that she struggled with bulimia.

‘I had a type of bulimia where you binge and then take laxatives instead of vomiting,’ she explained.

‘At the time, it seemed like a decent idea.’ I now realise it was a sort of bulimia, although it had no term at the time.’

Acting Up: Me, Myself & Irene is a ‘warm, humorous, and personal peek into the life of one of Australia’s living TV icons,’ according to publishers Allen & Unwin.

‘One of Australia’s most well-known TV actresses lifts the lid on life – both on and off-screen – with comedy, honesty, and self-deprecating charm.’

Lynne will discuss everything from her childhood to her television career.

Lynne McGranger’s novel Acting Up will be released in November.
