& # 39; We write a movie every week & # 39 ;: actor Shane Withington reveals the secret behind the continued success of Home and Away

He is the actor that John Palmer has played on Home and Away for more than ten years.

And Shane Withington has revealed why the popular Australian soap is relentlessly successful.

With the Daily Telegraph on Monday, the 60-year-old revealed that the show & # 39; has the ability to reinvent itself & # 39 ;.

& # 39; In 10 years it has gone from strength to strength, it has the ability to reinvent itself and stay at the forefront of whatever happens. It's multi-year, & he told the publication.

Shane added that Home and Away writes no less than two and a half hours of scenes per week – which comes as a shock to one movie per week.

& # 39; Writing a feature film a week is an extraordinary amount … Sometimes a thin storyline slips through & # 39 ;, he said.

Shane also grumbled at the amount of & # 39; hard-hitting issues & # 39; who investigated Home and Away.

& # 39; We've had Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which came out as a gay in a small town, bullying, anorexia, dealing with a serious injury … that's not common for a soap – and there I am I'm proud of, & # 39; he said.

And Shane, who initially became famous for A Country Practice, has been playing surfing basin John Palmer on Home and Away for the past ten years.

In June last year, Shane hit reality TV series and & # 39; cheap & # 39; productions for making television broadcasts are likely to go online.

Speaking to Starts at 60, he said: & # 39;[The TV industry] has changed dramatically. There is a lot more reality television that I think is a deep shame. & # 39;

& # 39; Our dramas & # 39; s in crisis, children's TV is in crisis because people want to make cheap TV, cheap reality shows that don't cost much & # 39 ;, he added frankly.

& # 39; Broadcast TV is ending. I think I see the end of my career. Our show will survive if it goes online, a bit like Netflix … But there is just something romantic about the term & # 39; going to the air & # 39 ;. & # 39; & # 39;

& # 39; Broadcast TV is ending. I will see the end of my career I think & # 39 ;: and in June last year, Shane hit reality TV shows and & # 39; Cheap & # 39; productions for putting on television broadcasts run the risk of going online
