15 years after saying goodbye to the Australian soap opera, Home and Away actor Mark Furze is no longer recognised.
The 37-year-old actor is most known for playing Eric ‘Rick’ Dalby, the grandson of Ray Meagher’s enduring character Alf Stewart, who originally came in Summer Bay in 2004.
Throughout his stormy time in the Bay, Ric’s use of violence was a key component of several tales, and in one occasion, the character even faced a murder accusation for a crime he didn’t commit.
Ric’s violent temper persisted throughout his career, despite his finally being one of the soap’s good guys.
With his on-and-off girlfriend Matilda Hunter (Indiana Evans), Ric relocated to Perth in 2008.
Nearly twenty years after making his soap opera debut, Mark looks entirely different.
Following his departure from the soap opera, he appeared in the 2010 television drama Underbelly: The Golden Mile and the 2011 Australian feature film A Heartbeat Away as Damian.
He later abandoned acting in favour of music, forming the rock group Falcon Road.
The Instagram bio of the former soap opera star begins, “Musician/band STONE LOVE,” then reads, “Vocals/Guitar.”
While Mark recently published his own album, Stone Love, he also joined the band Shotgun Alley in 2011, which had already produced three albums.
Mark had an appearance on The Voice Australia in 2020 while being coached by Kelly Rowland, but he was ousted in the semifinals.
On the set of ShotgunAlley’s music video for Eventually in 2011, the former actor and model Laural Barrett got to know one another.
The artist and the 36-year-old, who won the Miss New Zealand beauty pageant in 2007, were wed in Las Vegas in 2015.
In January 2022, the couple gave birth to a baby girl they called Soma.
