Home and Away welcomes Walker family

Home and Away will welcome a new family shortly.

The Walkers are set to move to Summer Bay from the city, so that patriarch Dr Sid Walker (played by Robert Mammone) can provide maternity cover for Rachel at the hospital.

He may look like the perfect family man, but he’s a serial philanderer and his wife Jody (Victoria Haralabidou) is hoping a fresh start in a new town will inspire her errant husband to behave himself in future.

The couple have two teenage children – Indigo (Samara Weaving, niece of Matrix and Lord of the Rings actor Hugo Weaving) and Dexter (Tom Green).

They’re not happy about being forced to leave the city, especially Indigo, who feels particularly cut off from her old life and friends after having her mobile phone confiscated by her parents following a 500 dollar bill.
