Jake Speer sat down recently with TV Week to discuss his role as Oscar on Home and Away. After a dramatic year for Jake’s character in 2015, he talks about his personal growth as an actor and how it has mirrored Oscar’s growth on the show.
“The past 12 months have strengthened relationships on the show, as I’ve transitioned from newbie to regular cast member. And, I’m feeling more grounded and more mature and still curious. It’s been an interesting time.”
Jake also discussed the pace of shooting on Home and Away, often only getting one take he described it as a “baptism of fire”. Jake says, “it’s the nature of the beast and that’s why it’s important to have those connections with the other cast members. Trust [between actors] is very important.”
