Actress Georgie Parker, 55, is close friends with all of her mates, judging from the constant Instagram snaps of her Home and Away co-stars.
But it’s her relationship with Alf Stewart’s on-screen father, played by Ray Meagher, that fans really enjoy.
Georgie admitted the close relationship applies to real life in a recent interview with the UK’s Radio Times and revealed that the couple also has affectionate nicknames for each other.
Home and Away’s Georgie Parker (right) revealed her nickname for her co-star Ray Meagher (left) is “YOF” which stands for “Your Other Father”.
“He is a terrific man. He calls me ‘Parker’ and I call him ‘YOF’ which stands for ‘Your Other Father’. His number is actually stored on my phone like that!” “Said Georgie to the publication.
Ray is a very generous, great storyteller and has a wicked sense of humor. I really love him.
“Alf has softened a little, but he can still get riled up and give what to give people. On the show, we need that kind of character, you can’t have everyone holding hands and skipping off into the sunset!”
Georgie plays Roo Stewart, the daughter of Ray’s character Alf.
In the beloved Channel Seven drama, the actress racked up a decade playing Alf’s daughter and reflected on her favorite storylines over the years on Monday.
One of her best memories, of course, was a dramatic plot shared with Ray in 2018 when her character Roo got stuck alongside Alf in a sinkhole.
“She told New Concept,” The sinkhole episode when Roo found out that her mother was alive and well, was another big one.
“At the time, when we were practically filming in a semicircular hole, we called it the ‘Pizza Oven’ set and Ray was lying under a pretend piece of concrete.”
“But it could well be with Ray if you’re going to be trapped in a sinkhole! And it sure makes for great suspense.”
“Ray is a great storyteller, very generous and has a wicked sense of humour. I love him,” Georgie gushed.
Georgie also shared that Alf’s wedding day, which took place in 2020, was another favorite of hers.
“The marriage of Alf and Martha, the parents of Roo, was lovely,” she said.
It was genuinely lovely for the audience to see Alf in a mature, romantic relationship with his daughter’s mother. And Belinda is so good at playing Martha-she’s so stunning.
