Home and Away actress Georgie Parker revealed she is taking an extended break from the Channel 5 soap but admitted her future as Roo heavily revolves around another person

Georgie Parker, a popular cast member of Home and Away, is taking a long hiatus from the drama to perform on stage.

Since 2010, the actress has played Roo Stewart in place of Justine Clarke, who left the part in 1989.

The 58-year-old said she is leaving the show temporarily and that she has no intentions to return.

Ray Meagher, who has intermittently portrayed Georgie’s on-screen father, Alf Stewart, since the show’s debut episode in 1988, had a significant role in her decision to stay in Summer Bay.

Since I play his daughter and my plot centers around him, I wouldn’t leave while he is present, Georgie admitted to Yahoo Lifestyle.

It’s a relief to the fans who have been heartbroken by the departures of Paddy O’Connor and Sophie Dillman since it’s obvious they don’t want to see the character go.

“Please don’t leave, you are a great actor,” one begged on social media. Don’t leave Summer Bay since everyone here likes you.

Another said, “Love Georgie. She is a fantastic performer, and she, Alf, Irene, John, and Marilyn’s characters are what make Home and Away what it is.

Then someone else said, “I love Georgie Parker, it [wouldn’t] be the same without you.”

The brunette beauty said she feels “very fortunate” to be able to take on other projects in addition to Home and Away. She will be taking a seven-week vacation from Home and Away to star in the play Rhinestone Rex and Miss Monica.

She told the publication: “I’m very fortunate that [producers] are very flexible, and they let me go to do other things which is very important for me. I’m very, very grateful for it”.

During Friday’s episode (June 8), Roo resisted Marilyn’s attempts to become a brand ambassador for Stunning Organics and offered to buy a product instead.

But things took a turn for the worst when Roo experienced a burning sensation after putting on a face mask, forcing Bree to take her to the hospital.
