·2-min read

Home and Away fans have gone wild over ‘unrecognisable’ snaps of former star Lisa Gormley. The star, 38, played Bianca Scott on the soap from 2010 to 2014, before making multiple guest appearances between 2015 to 2017 alongside onscreen husband Heath Braxton (Dan Ewing).

The English-born actress was introduced to fans with blonde hair, but since quitting the show, she has let her natural brunette locks grow out. After a snap was shared on social media, fans couldn’t get over how different the star looks now.

In one photo, the star is seen sitting in nature with her dog Sasha, looking at ease with a wide-brimmed hat and hiking boots on. Her curly, brown hair framed her face as she put on a big smile for the camera.

In another, the star summed up the year 2022 as “epic”, taking a selfie with Sasha while lying on a couch. She kept her face fresh and makeup free, looking cosy in an aqua sweater. She affectionately calls her pup her “best friend”, and often posts about Aussie charity Dogs’ Home of Tasmania.


In February, the Summer Bay star shared a carousel of snaps from her return to the stage in Amy's Tattoo and A Midsummer's Much Ado about Kings, Queens & Jokers. She looked at home in the productions, with Lisa even receiving an award from Theatre Tasmania for her title role as Amy Lock in Amy's Tattoo.

Fans shared their thoughts on social media, with many saying that Lisa ‘looks quite different’.

“Who remembers Lisa Gormley, she played Bianca Scott,” one fan asked. “Doesn’t she look so different now? Well, I think she does.”

“Unrecognisable I’d say,” a fan replied, while another added: “That so does NOT look like her.”

“Omg a lot different,” wrote a third, with another saying they did remember her character.


“Wow she does look different, I had to look twice lol,” a fan remarked.

“Different but still beautiful — we all get older,” another chimed in.

“Definitely different. Perhaps because she hasn’t got the longish blonde hair,” suggested a fan.
