Home and Away star Dan Ewing wants to visit the bright lights of Hollywood.

The 27-year-old actor, who has played the part of Bay's Heath Braxton for two years, revealed that he would also like to star in a US production.

Speaking to Manly Daily, Ewing said: "I'd definitely like to step into American film. I think America's doing a lot of good television at the moment as well."

"I think you should never go over there with any fear, because that will restrict you. It's being prepared. Having good representation here, being ready and having your craft down.''

Ewing further revealed that he would like to follow in the footsteps of former Home and Away star, Chris Hemsworth, adding: "I do like watching The Avengers and stuff but I really like the gritty stories you see.

"When they take the special effects out and they just do really good character pieces and make the action secondary. Like Warrior, that Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy did."
