Home and Away star Lisa Gormley has opened up about her departure from the popular soap.

The 29-year-old actress, who plays Bianca Scott on the Australian show, is set to depart the small screen in the coming weeks, but the star revealed that she left the show months ago.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Lisa said: “I’ve been away from the show for about six months now. At first it was hard, just like any change in life is – but it was my own choice to leave, so it was up to me to find my new path”.

When asked about her final scene, she said: “Once they had cut on the final scene, there were so many tears. They all did lovely speeches, but my speech was very short because I was very emotional!”
