“I had a couple of meetings upstairs.”
Matt Evans of Home and Away made the new plot line for his character real.
He portrays Theo Poulos in the Australian soap opera, a passionate singer whose salvation has recently been praised by followers.
Evans also discussed Theo’s involvement with Salt’s resident band, Lyrik, which makes use of his musicianship, while catching up with Stuff.
The actor described his desire to showcase his abilities: “I had a couple of meetings upstairs where I indicated that I’d love to be able to do it and they were extremely accepting of it.”
“I knew there would be some music I could add to the character, but nothing else,” the author said. It’s also hilarious how they kind of hid it from me.
“There were rumours that this band was coming in, but I was unaware of them. I was one of the last to learn, but it’s been incredible.
As for whether Home and Away gets to break out some Evans originals on screen, he went on to comment: “I do not know but that’d be great. I would love that to happen.
“The stuff that I’m writing is really fun, sort of funky pop so I think it would work really well. Maybe I have to have some more meetings (with the writers).”
