Jake Ryan on Kiwi gangs, Robbo's wild ride and 'Home and Away' in prisons

·Lifestyle & Entertainment Producer

Home and Away’s resident ‘bad boy,’ Jake Ryan, joined host Danny Clayton in the Build Series Sydney studio to chat about how popular the long-running Aussie soap is in prisons.

It’s something Jake discovered while preparing for his role as a Kiwi gang member for his upcoming film Savage.

“No word of a lie, a lot of them watch Home and Away,” Jake revealed of the inmates he spoke with in the lead up to the film shoot.

“They were fans of [my character] Robbo, because he is your quintessential bad guy and at that time what was airing, I wasn't a federal agent. I was still a bad tough guy with tattoos on Home and Away,” he added.

The 36-year-old also hinted at what's in store for Robbo, who tied the knot with his on-screen love Jasmine, played by ex-Bachelor star Sam Frost, earlier this year.

“Trouble follows him where ever he goes,” he said.

“Action man Robbo is back,” he added.
