While news of her new TV gig made it the real deal that Bonnie Sveen would be waving goodbye to Summer Bay, the bubbly star and Home and Away favourite has confirmed the news herself.
In a post to her Instagram account, she took the time to announce the news and thank colleagues for her time on the popular show.
Posting a photograph of herself on set with make-up artist Sherri Meissner, the 27-year-old wrote: ‘It is with a sad but proud heart I announce the end of my Home & Away journey. ‘
‘If someone had told me 10 years ago that I’d be playing a staunch, surfy chick in Summer Bay (and that it would bring me more joy than I could imagine) I wouldn’t have believed them.’
She went on to thank co-stars and crew ‘for the banter, the laughs and the lessons’, and added that taking on the character had ‘shaped’ her ‘forever’.
‘I carry every bond that was forged and so many fond new memories into the new beginning. Very excited about what creative exploration the future holds,’ she concluded.
We will miss you Ricky Sharpe!
