Home and Away's Lukas Radovich shares 'awesome' new project

Home and Away fans were disappointed when Lukas Radovich (Ryder Jackson) departed the soap earlier this year.

Since leaving the show, the fan favourite has kept busy with multiple projects and has been branching out into other areas of the entertainment industry.

On Sunday, Lukas revealed that he directed and edited singer’s Penelope’s latest music video for her single BiConic.

“I had so much fun directing the Official Music Video for Penelope’s latest single ‘BiConic’,” he wrote. “We’re premiering the video TONIGHT at Universal Sydney Sunday Shenanigans! Hope to see you there!”


His Home and Away family showed support for the actor, with Sam Frost (Jasmine Delaney), Emily Weir (Mackenzie Booth), Lynne McGranger (Irene Roberts) and Georgie Parker (Roo Stewart) liking his post.

“Such a great song & video! Congratulations on the awesome directing,” a fan commented, with other fans leaving fire emojis.

Last week, Lukas shared some behind-the-scenes clips on Instagram for what appears to be a short film.

“A whackadoodle four day shoot for a short film with the literal dream team,” he wrote in the caption.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted fellow Home and Away star Patrick O’Connor (Dean Thompson) playing a character onscreen, seemingly as a tradie with a hard hat.

Lukas also tagged actress Claudia Doumit, an Australian star who is most well known for her role as Victoria Neuman on The Boys.

Fans were delighted at the sneak peek, with one saying it looked ‘exciting’.

“Can’t wait to see the results mate,” a second added.

“Wow, cool!” another remarked.

Lukas played Alf Stewart's grandson Ryder from 2017 and was part of the soap's first LGBTQ+ storyline in almost a decade when his character shared a kiss with Marilyn and John's foster child Ty Anderson.

"I was really excited to be part of a new storyline – something that hasn't been done before, and something that I could explore with a TV show which is such a part of Australian culture,” Lukas told Digital Spy at the time.

Even though his character was a teen who was still at school and Lukas was in his mid-20s, he could still relate to him.

"Even though the character is a little bit younger, I can still easily relate to that point in my life and it's been a lot of fun revisiting those years," Lukas revealed.
