Photo Gallery: Soap hunk pulls Newbridge crowd

Australian actor and TV hunk Dan Ewing, who plays Heath Braxton on the TV soap Home and Away, spent two-and-a-half hours chatting to excited fans and posing for photographs in Whitewater Shopping Centre on Saturday afternoon, writes Paula Campbell.

Excited fans turned out at the centre in their droves hoping to meet the soap star “in the flesh”.

The Home And Away star – who also appeared in Superman Returns – is currently on a whistlestop tour of Ireland which will include hosting a summer party at Time Nightclub in Naas on Saturday, July 20 next.

The Summer Bay heart throb is following in the footsteps of his on-screen brother, Daryl ‘Brax’ Braxton – played by Stephen Peacock – who also underook a tour of Ireland last Christmas.
