As of 2017, Ray Meagher (Alf) is the longest-serving cast member (3,646 episodes so far), as well as remains the only original cast member still on the show since it's premiere in 1988. Kate Richie (Sally) left the show in the early part of the 2008 season, and Norman Coburn (Fisher) left in 2003. Other long serving cast members include Lynne McGranger (since 1992) and Ada Nicodemou (since 2000). Lynn Collingwood was also a recurring cast member (appearing during the 1988-1989 seasons). However, she left the show for several years before returning briefly in 1997, and again in 1999 as permanent cast member. See more »
When Carly Lucini had her baby in 1992, it was a girl. But when the Ross family tried to help Pippa regain her memory in 1997, they said Carly had had a boy! See more »
Home & Away had its best days in the mid 90's when they actually had good actors and a few decent storylines. It started to go down hill after about 1997 when the characters became all to similar and the storylines revisited (but then again what soapy doesn't?). This show is watchable until you feel the recycling and then its a turnoff. I do admire a couple of the actors though who have stuck with the show and not got stars in their eyes and expectations beyond their abilities.
