On the day that he bowed out of playing Brody Morgan after 3 years on Home and Away, actor Jackson Heywood posted a heartfelt Instagram message paying tribute to his fellow actors and the producers of the show, alongside a number of backstage photos of his time in Summer Bay:
What a ride.
Thanks to everyone of you who came along for the journey over the last 3 years.
Brody is now and will be, a part of me forever, and i’m grateful beyond words for all the support and cheers I’ve received along the way.
In 3 years who woulda thought someone could have such an eventful time, but after 4 kidnappings, 5 arrests, 1 plane crash, 1 horrific car accident, getting lost in the bush, falling off a cliff, an Ice addiction, a rehab stint, a family in witness protection, a doomsday prepper girlfriend, a long lost lil sister, a bushfire rescue, a forbidden love, a marriage, an affair, a divorce, a restaurant of my own, which i bought, sold, then bought again, a restaurant of my own, which i bought, sold, then bought again, a hidden musical talent, a bunch of other events I’ve probably missed, and a family with more baggage than an A380 Airbus, its safe to say Brody definitely didn’t waste his time in Summer Bay.
Thanks for all the incredible friends i’ve made an people i’ve met throughout. My life is changed forever, for the better and i will sorely miss but will never forget my time there.
Thanks Summer Bay, its been 👌.
