What Are Your Favourite Home & Away Stars Up To Now?

It's Australia's longest running TV drama, and has spawned some mega Hollywood stars over the years.

But where are some of the Home & Away stars that we can't catch up with in the latest movie blockbuster?

1.  Selina Roberts (Tempany Deckert)

SHOW: She was a rebel at heart who fell in love with her teacher Steve, but left him at the altar.  Selina also was brainwashed into joining a cult that was headed by the villainous Saul, and we can't forget when she found a baby on the beach in Summer Bay that was "fate".
