RIP CHARLIE BUCKTON….
I am going to be completely honest!
When Esther Anderson first began acting on ‘Home & Away’, I was not a fan of her character Charlie Buckton at all!
Her fiesty nature and confidence somewhat threatened me…
I know that sounds odd.. but many of you who are dedicated fans of any television drama, would understand the real attachment that viewers begin to establish with a show and its characters.
That’s when you know that the producers and the actors have really excelled in their profession.
When the character of Charlie arrived, her strong, resilient persona threatened me. I felt as though she was a stranger intruding the stable dynamics of Summer Bay; a place I also called home.
But the reality and absolute beauty of life is that we never stop meeting new people, experiencing new things and making new memories.
And Charlie Buckton definitely grew on me… so much to the extent that she eventually became my favourite female character on the hit Channel 7 drama.
We do all know though that with life’s hello’s also come the goodbyes.
So today we farewell the resident Summer Bay sweetheart who we’ve all fallen in love with, who made it ok to be with the ultimate bad boy… and who made being a cop oh so sexy!
RIP Charlie Buckton!
