    Home and Away: Meet Summer Bay's fiery new addition
    Shaking things up!


    https://www.newidea.com.au/home-and-...r-joining-cast

    Chatting to Home and Away’s newest star Emily Weir during a break in a busy day on set, it quickly becomes clear to New Idea that the gorgeous actress is about to make her mark on our screens in the best possible way.

    Bursting with excitement, Emily couldn’t be more thrilled to have landed the career break of a lifetime – the pivotal role of mysterious Summer Bay newcomer Mackenzie. And Emily, who has been making a name for herself in the world of stage and film, has every intention of making the most of her first major TV gig.

    Born and raised in Brisbane, Emily studied her craft at Queensland’s University of Technology before moving to Sydney three and a half years ago.

    And through it all, Emily’s family have been avid fans of Home and Away. Safe to say, they were over the moon when she landed a major part in the drama the clan has fondly dubbed ‘Homey’.

    “They couldn’t believe it,” says Emily with a laugh. “Hopefully, I’ll be able to get them into the studio soon and they can meet some of the cast.”

    As for Emily herself, she’s happy to report she was welcomed with open arms.

    “I know people say it all the time, but there is something about the entire Home and Away organisation,” she says. “It really is such a fantastic place to work and there’s a real sense of family.”

    At present happily single, Emily smiles as she says: “It’s just me, and that’s actually been sort of perfect at this stage of my life. With everything going on, it’s been really nice to rely on myself and get to know myself even more with all the wonderful things that are coming.”

    In the meantime, Emily appears in the Bay for the first time as Mackenzie, the new owner of Salt.

    “Mackenzie is a very fierce and independent, smart woman,” says Emily. “We don’t really know what her motivation is for coming to the Bay – there is quite an element of mystery there.”

    Indeed, it quickly becomes clear that running the popular restaurant is far from Mackenzie’s sole reason for setting up home in the coastal town. Stay tuned!

    Ringing Reminder.
    Mackenzie Shuts Down Colby's Kiss.


    There's no denying sparks have flown between Colby and Mackenzie since she moved to the Bay. Despite their trepidation, however, Colby makes a bold move, which doesn't quite go to plan...

    After shocking Dean (Patrick O'Connor) last week with the news that she's his sister, Mackenzie (Emily Weir) seeks him out, looking for help - she wants revenge on their manipulative dad. But Dean wants nothing to do with it.

    Dean's strong words on the subject leave the owner of Salt with plenty of food for thought. When Colby (Tim Franklin) finds Mac deep in thought, the pair chat and bond over their complicated families. Before long, the cop leans in and kisses her. But, after a moment, she pulls away.

    Mac explains that she likes Colby, but can't get involved while he's still wearing his wedding ring...

    "It's a strict moral thing that she won't excuse," Emily tells TV WEEK. "She knows he's separated, but she needs that official symbol to be gone so that he's a single man."

    Will Colby be able to let Chelsea (Ashleigh Brewer) go for good?

    Home and Away to reveal Mackenzie Booth's hidden agenda
    What does she really want from Dean?


    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...ompson-agenda/

    Home and Away newcomer Mackenzie Booth reveals her true agenda on UK screens next week.

    Mackenzie (Emily Weir) was introduced to Channel 5 viewers earlier this month when she took over the Salt restaurant, and it'll soon be confirmed on screen that she's Dean Thompson's half-sister.

    Dean (Patrick O'Connor) and Mackenzie have the same father – Rick Booth – and this shared connection is a major factor behind the new arrival's decision to come to Summer Bay.

    Scenes airing on Channel 5 next week see Mackenzie tell Dean that she wants his help with bringing down their dad, who is currently trying to embark on a new career in politics.

    Mackenzie explains that she wants Dean's support as she knows that she'd be viewed with scepticism if she went public with her grievances against Rick on her own. With Dean's back-up, she may be taken more seriously.

    An unimpressed Dean insists that he wants nothing to do with it, but when Mackenzie continues to push the issue, she makes the mistake of bringing up his troubled mum Karen.

    Mackenzie's incorrect assumptions about Karen's history with Rick irritate Dean further, leaving him more determined than ever to stay out of this revenge plan.

    Despite this, Mackenzie sticks to her guns and still thinks she can win Dean round. Who'll win this battle of wills?

    Home and Away airs these scenes on Wednesday, July 31 and Thursday, August 1 at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5.

    Home and Away spoiler: Mackenzie and Ari strike up a romantic connection
    But what about Colby?


    https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebri...ri-colby-63440

    Mackenzie has never shied away from what – or who – she wants. But when it doesn't work out as planned, she's also not one to wait around.

    In Home And Away this week, Mackenzie (Emily Weir) is getting impatient in her relationship with Colby (Tim Franklin).

    The couple have been on and off since she arrived in Summer Bay. But the policeman's commitments to his duties, his past history and care for his sister Bella (Courtney Miller) caused him to call it quits.

    "Mac felt Colby didn't prioritise her in his life," Emily tells TV WEEK. "He didn't have time for her. Granted, he had a lot going on with Bella and with his police work, but she's tired of coming second."

    Now, Colby wants her back. But someone else might have stolen her heart.

    Newcomer Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) has been coming to Salt every day to scour the papers for jobs. So far, he's had little luck, and Mackenzie has been a shoulder to lean on. Despite his reluctance to talk about himself, the bar owner is intrigued.

    "Ari appeals because he seems drama-free," Emily explains. "He's relaxed and easy and she finds him attractive."

    "She's craving simplicity and wants to avoid 'complicated'. Ari seems someone who's calm and relaxed with himself."

    Of course, viewers know he's actually a former prison mate of her brother, Dean (Patrick O'Connor), and is secretive about his criminal past. And when Mackenzie mentions her new friendship to Dean, he attempts to push her back to Colby.

    Whether she listens to his advice, however, is another issue...

    The following day, Dean finds Mackenzie sulking at Salt – Ari hasn't shown up, which she takes to mean he's not into her.

    Little does she know that Dean warned him to stay away from her.

    Determined to get answers, Mackenzie heads to the caravan park to confront Ari. Not only is she met by a bemused response to her blunt approach, but also the surprising truth about his past. Ari finds himself opening up in a way he hasn't before.

    "Mackenzie isn't threatened or judge anyone for having a complicated past, as she has one herself," Emily says. "She judges only on what is in front of her."

    At the same time, Colby is preparing himself to fully commit to a relationship. But Mackenzie is moving on.

    "Mackenzie has gotten to a point where she thinks it's over," Emily says. "Although she still thinks the world of Colby – and feels a strong connection to him – she knows that going around in circles with him is affecting her self-esteem. She needs to get back to basics and start putting herself first."

    Looks like things are about to get very awkward...

    Ari and Mackenzie’s relationship heats up

    The Parata family have caused a stir ever since they arrived in Summer Bay. But not everyone is upset by them being there.

    Mackenzie (Emily Weir) has been getting to know Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) thanks to his daily visits to Salt and turns on the charm.

    This week, their flirting leads them to spent the night together in his caravan. It's fun, carefree, and exactly what Mackenzie is looking for right now.

    "She doesn't regret it," Emily tells TV WEEK. "She enjoys the freedom of sleeping with Ari – it's uncomplicated and fun. It makes her feel like she's found her swagger again and she enjoys the breath of fresh air."

    The next day, John (Shane Withington) spots Mackenzie leaving Ari's caravan. He's had it in for the Paratas from day one and hurries off to tell his wife Marilyn (Emily Symons) what he's seen.

    Meanwhile, Mackenzie's ex, policeman Colby (Tim Franklin) has grand plans to win her back.

    Will she tell him about her night with Ari? Or will he find out?

    "Mac doesn't know if it's over with Colby for good, but she's starting to see she feels a lot better when she isn't pining after him," Emily says.

    Home and Away reveals a second new love interest for Mackenzie Booth
    "There is an instant attraction."


    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...ckenzie-booth/

    Warning: Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers

    Home and Away has revealed a second new love interest for Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir).

    Following an unsuccessful romance with Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) and a burgeoning relationship with Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams), the unlucky in love Summer Bay resident will next catch the eye of hunky newcomer Tane (Ethan Browne) who is Ari's brother.

    With no love lost between the brothers, will Tane's attraction to Mackenzie send their relationship over the edge?

    According to Tane actor Ethan Browne, the new hunk can't wait to get under his brother's skin following a blossoming attraction with Mackenzie.

    So, things are set to get interesting!

    "Mackenzie immediately catches Tane’s eye," Ethan Browne told Australian magazine New Idea.

    "There is an instant attraction."

    "But that certainly doesn’t put Tane off. He thinks, 'OK, OK, that makes it even more interesting!'

    "He likes to get under Ari’s skin whatever way he can."

    With Tane set to stick around Summer Bay for a while, it seems Mackenzie has a difficult decision ahead.

    Which brother will she choose? Ari or Tane?

    And, will the losing brother deal well with the rejection?

    Home and Away airs on Channel Seven in Australia and Channel 5 in the UK.

    Home and Away's Mackenzie Booth makes a big confession over Tane Parata
    Will she act on her feelings?

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...ta-confession/

    Home and Away spoilers follow from recent Australian-pace episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.

    Home and Away has kicked off a new love triangle storyline, with Mackenzie Booth admitting that she has feelings for both of the Parata brothers.

    Mackenzie (Emily Weir) is currently in a relationship with Ari Parata, but has attracted the attention of his bad boy sibling Tane in recent episodes too.

    After tell-tale signs that the feelings could be mutual, Mackenzie finally acknowledged the truth of the situation in this week's Australian episodes.

    The revelation played out after Mackenzie offered Tane (Ethan Browne) a job at Salt, wanting to help him support his family.

    Tane has been relying on risky criminal jobs in order to pay the rent, so Mackenzie hoped that her help could provide an opportunity for him to go straight.

    When Tane initially turned down Mackenzie's offer, she reacted badly and the public tensions were witnessed by her brother Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor), who wanted to know why Mac cared so much.

    In a heart-to-heart with Dean, Mackenzie confessed that she has feelings for Tane but doesn't plan on acting on them because she's with Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams).

    A surprised Dean tried his best to offer support, but was privately fearful that this complicated situation could affect his friendship with Ari in the future.

    Things became more tricky when Tane decided to accept Mackenzie's job offer after all, meaning that they'd be working in close proximity.

    Is it only a matter of time before Mackenzie and Tane act on their feelings for each other and leave Ari heartbroken?

    Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in late August.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).

    I think she is still renting her own place. If my memory serves me correctly, we saw it a couple of times early on after she arrived (didn't Bella catch her in bed with Colby there once??? or am I remembering that wrongly?). But I don't think we have really seen the place again since. And now she is with Ari, we only ever see her when she (regularly) stays over at the Parata's.
