Sveen earlier confirmed that she was leaving Summer Bay after playing Ricky since April 2013. She broke the sad news on Instagram and shared a photo of herself on set with make-up artist Sherri Meissner.
“It is with a sad but proud heart I announce the end of my Home & Away journey. If someone had told me 10 years ago that I’d be playing a staunch, surfy chick in Summer Bay (and that it would bring me more joy than I could imagine) I wouldn’t have believed them,” she wrote in the caption.
And so…It is with a sad but proud heart I announce the end of my Home & Away journey. If someone had told me 10 years ago that I'd be playing a staunch, surfy chick in Summer Bay (and that it would bring me more joy than I could imagine) I wouldn't have believed them. A magical place to shoot scenes all colours of the rainbow, 😆😍😩😜😤🤒😭with a tireless crew and production team… And a cast that I have learnt from and grown amongst. Thank you for the banter, the laughs and the lessons. Playing Ricky has shaped me forever. I carry every bond that was forged and so many fond memories, into the new beginning. Very excited about what creative exploration the future holds… And thrilled to be diving into LAYLA, on 7s new #SecretDaughter @jessicamauboy1's character (BILLIE)'s best friend. 💁🏽🙋🏼 Snap 📸 is with one of my H&A sisters @makeupbysherri 💗
