Sam Frost has made hints that she would reprise her role as Jasmine Delaney after leaving her “dream job” on Home and Away at the end of 2021.
Sam first joined the cast of the long-running Channel Seven serial opera in 2017, despite having no prior acting experience. Sam first rose to popularity on Blake Garvey’s season of The Bachelor, followed by her own season of The Bachelorette in 2015.
“In order to take care of my mental health, I left my ideal job at Home & Away. I had to step back, return home, and spend time with my family. As she outlined her reasons for quitting, Sam stated in an Instagram post, “And most importantly, take good care of my health and well-being.
“I now spend the days doing the things I’ve always wanted to do but couldn’t because I was working with the people I love. I spent 4.5 years missing important milestones as a sister, a distant friend, and a distant girlfriend.
“I’m now catching up on lost time. My relationships and health are my top priorities.
Despite this, the 34-year-old mother of one might be planning a trip back to Summer Bay soon.
The reality star turned actress answered a fan’s question about whether she will ever return to Home and Away on her Instagram stories.
Sam’s tease was brief and sweet: “Maybe one day.”
When asked if she could see herself performing again in the future by a different fan, Sam responded, “Definitely.”
“Keen to get back out there soon-ish,” she retorted. “I love acting so much.”
It is unclear, however, whether Home and Away would signal her return to acting given that she “quit” the lucrative role with three years left on her contract after receiving severe criticism for her anti-vax beliefs.
Sam revealed her lack of immunisation in a video she posted with her 500,000 Instagram followers in October 2021, inciting outrage across the country.
“There are a lot of different reasons why people aren’t getting vaccinated,” Sam said in the film. “It could be their medical history, it could be their concerns, it could be a family history, it could be religious reasons, it could be anything.”
Her final scenes as Jasmine were filmed in December 2021, although the show didn’t end until June 2022, six months later.
