Home and Away actor Lincoln Younes has admitted that he is keen to live the American dream and land an acting gig in Los Angeles.

The Summer Bay star, who plays Casey Braxton on the popular soap, explained that he is heading Stateside in July in an attempt to tie down an acting gig.

Speaking to The West, Younes said: "I've booked my ticket. I'm pretty keen just to go over and catch up with some of the old Home and Away people and see what it's like.

"I think it's kind of the smart move. I'd definitely love to get into films."

Younes further revealed that there are exciting times ahead for his character, adding: "There is a lot of cool stuff coming up so hopefully the audience likes it.

"It's good, the stuff we're filming at the moment has been completely different for me, equally as hard but very interesting to do."
