Home And Away star Dan Ewing has teased that Summer Bay will soon get a new baddie.

The actor, who portrays Heath Braxton (pictured), revealed that Brax’s former mentor, bad boy Adam Sharpe (Martin Lynes), will make an appearance. His arrival makes Darryl ‘Brax’ (Steve Peacocke) happy, but Heath doesn’t give him a warm welcome.

“He’s one of the worst guys the Braxtons have encountered, because he’s got brains and he doesn’t like anyone who stands in his path,” Dan told Australia’s TV Week.

“Heath went to jail when he was younger and he blames Adam for that. Adam’s a bad egg, but he’s charming and has lots of money, so he’s not the cliched nasty guy,” the actor explained.

Adam agrees to help when Heath’s on-off girlfriend Bianca (Lisa Gormley) asks for drugs to ease her pain following the death of the couple’s baby son Rocco. Heath warns him off when he realises what is going on, but Adam tries to blackmail him.

“Adam basically gets to the point where he’s sick of Heath having a go at him and says, ‘If you come and work for me and do a job, I’ll stop hanging out with her’. Adam’s definitely showing his more sinister side,” Dan said.

The scenes will air on Home And Away in Australia next week, and in January on Channel 5 in the UK.
