Played by Emily Symons
After leaving the Bay years ago, Marilyn Chambers returns with a secret and a new lease on life.
Still tender over the cancer death of her son Byron, Marilyn has come to realise life is for living and wasting even a second of it is a crime.
Coming to terms with her own mortality, she is also for embracing Eastern religions, magic, tribal beliefs and bookstore philosophy - anything to keep her feet moving and a smile on her dial.
If this means she gets in the face of more traditional thinkers - with her vegan food, positive outlook and go-get-em attitude - then so be it. Only death itself will stop her in her tracks...and she'll be damned if she's going to run towards the light at the end of the tunnel.
Relationship status: Marilyn is single. She recently ended a relationship with Sid Walker.
Past relationships: Divorced. Was married to Donald Fisher.
Family: Lost her young son Byron to cancer.
Friends: Longstanding friends with Alf and Irene.
Living arrangements: Living with Miles Copeland and Alf Stewart at the caravan park
