Even though her character, Charlie, is clearly dead (we all saw her die in her hospital bed after being shot) it looks like Esther Anderson is set to return to Home and Away!
Esther confirmed it on her twitter page (@AndersonJEsther) by tweeting “Thanks for all the messages tweeters! Can’t wait to see all the cast and crew when I’m back!!!!!!!”
Fans aren’t the only shocked ones, so were her parents. According to heraldsun.com.au Esther said, “I told my mum and dad that I was coming back, and they almost fell off their chairs. They said: ‘Hang on, didn’t Charlie die?'”
While Esther has confirmed that she is returning to Summer Bay, she is not revealing how. She told heraldsun.com.au “”It was outlined to me a couple of months ago – not just the return – the whole storyline and I knew I wanted to do it… It’s hilarious, because this time 12 months ago I was keeping it the biggest secret from everyone as to whether Charlie would live or die, and now I’m in the same boat again as far as not giving anything away,”
@HomeandAway_ tweeted the following about Esther’s return, “Will be interesting to see @AndersonJEsther Return to#HomeAndAway playing charlie next year! will it be like flash backs or something else!”
Whatever it is, I just hope Charlie’s return is not going to be as tacky as Bobby’s ghostly return (Ailsa saw Bobby come out of a fridge) or Alf’s sightings of Ailsa!
In case you missed it, here are Charlie’s final moments in the Bay
Check out Bobby’s ghost emerging from the fridge
Here’s Alf seeing his beloved Ailsa’s ghost
Esther will film her scenes in December and the ‘Charlie’ storyline will air in 2013.
