“People forget that I’m an actor by trade, I made a movie called ‘Greed’ a few years ago with Isla Fisher and Steve Coogan playing my parents-in-law,” he said.
“But I’d love to be in Neighbors or Home and Away!”
He concluded: “I miss Australia a lot too and can’t wait to go back as soon as I may.”
“People forget that I’m an actor by trade, I made a movie called ‘Greed’ a few years ago with Isla Fisher and Steve Coogan playing my in-laws,” he said.
In late 2015, Ed Sheeran excited fans because he had a guest spot on Home and Away.
The British singer played ‘Teddy’, a singer that Marilyn Chambers (played by Emily Symons) took care of when she lived in the UK.

During the show, Teddy also played an intimate performance in front of a delighted audience at Angelo’s bar.
Ed said earlier of his role: ‘It is an Australian institution. It’s always on at my local chip shop. ‘
‘I was asked to do it and it sounded like it could be fun. I also did Shortland Street in New Zealand and I’m sure if Emmerdale or EastEnders ever asked me in England I would too. ‘

He revealed that he feels ‘lucky’ to still be a part of the show, saying he would love an original cast reunion.
In particular, Ollie said he would love to see Caggie Dunlop, 32, come back.
“I think it would be great for Caggie to come back,” he told Daily Mail Australia, an original cast member of the franchise.
Ollie spoke fondly of his time on the show over the years, saying that he all looks back on it with ‘a real mix of emotions’.
“The pride of being on this show for so long is one of them,” he said.
Happiness, difficulties, kindness from people who watch the show, and we have to name some horrible fractures. But above all, an adventure I just couldn’t have foreseen and what a way to live in my twenties. ‘
