Home and Away's Georgie Parker stuns in 'ageless' throwback: 'Wow!'

Home and Away star Georgie Parker first appeared on the iconic soap in 2010, becoming the second actress to take on the role of Roo Stewart.

The actress has been an Australian favourite since appearing in A Country Practice in 1988, and has paid tribute to her role as Sister Lucy ‘Gardiner’ Tyler.

Georgie shared a photo of herself and Kate Raison, who played Cathy Hayden, from their A Country Practice days.

“Blast from the past. 30 years ago at a film premiere with my beautiful friend Kate Raison,” she wrote in the caption.


The pair are smiling in the black and white photo, with Georgie sporting a pair of round glasses and her trademark long locks.

Fans couldn’t believe how little the star had changed over the years, with one calling her ‘ageless’.

“You don’t age, Georgie,” one stunned fan wrote, while another added: “Great photo young lady, omg where does the time go?”.

“Omg stoooooop!! You are both so beautiful,” a second wrote.

“There is no way this is 30 years ago,” talent agent Mark Morrissey chimed in.

Other fans were delighted at the chance to wander down memory lane.

A Country Practice era. Loved you in that. The reason I wanted to become a nurse,” a fan gushed.

“Wow! Haven’t seen Kate Raison on anything for years. And this looks like your A Country Practice days…strutting the Lucy Gardiner look!” a second added.

“I still remember watching you both on A Country Practice and Cathy’s accident on the horse freaked me out as a kid! Lucy was my fave,” another commented.

Georgie Parker's huge sacrifice

This comes after Georgie opened about the 'wrenching' sacrifice she made while working in the 90s.

Speaking to TV Week earlier this year, the star recalled having to return to the set of All Saints just 17 weeks after giving birth to her daughter, Holly.

“It was wrenching, but I knew what I’d signed on for,” she began.

“It was really hard having a newborn and going to work for 13 hours a day. Then, in your spare time, you had publicity and photoshoots.”

Georgie acknowledged that Channel Seven made the transition as easy as possible, saying, "Holly came to set sometimes. It helped me mentally with such enormous separation.”

Much of the show's success depended on her character. She saw her hard work and sacrifice pay off a few months later when she took home the Gold Logie for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television.

However, Georgie said she has always been honest with her daughter about how a creative career isn’t easy. “It’s always been a given that it’s a tough life and, if you choose it, you have to commit to it,” she added.
