Cottier and Fish who have played Dexter Walker and April Scott in the Summer Bay saga for three years are to leave a co-star has confirmed. Actress Teri Haddy, who plays Rosie Prichard on the series, told Australia’s TV Week magazine the gossip was true.
I think because they have both been on the show for so long, they wanted to start a brand new chapter. I want it to be a really positive ending for April and Dex, and an open-ended one. – Haddy
Haddy’s character is also to depart Home and Away down under next week, the show airs some weeks later in the UK on Channel 5.
The way Rosie leaves the Bay is really positive, and yes, it will leave the door open for her to come back later on. -Haddy
