Angelina Thomson: “It’s going to shake up the Bay”

The saga with Stunning Organics continues on Home and Away with a bomb set to explode during the June 6 episode of the long-running soap and Angelina Thomson’s Kirby is smack bang in the middle of it.

While iconic character Marilyn (Emily Symons) was the one to set the ball in motion with her feud against the fictitious brand, Kirby is the one to not only receive the explosive but pass it around the whole of Summer Bay!

“It’s going to be a huge episode,” Thomson told Mediaweek prior to the instalment. “As the episode goes on and as the story develops, the bomb gets exchanged amongst many hands.”

For fans of the drama, we’ll see the bomb be passed through homes, the infamous Morgan House and even the Surf Club, one of the most recognisable places in the series.

“There are so many people that could be involved in this explosive episode. It’s going to shake up the Bay!” she said, which is concerning given that the promos suggest someone “won’t come home”!

What will the ramifications be for Summer Bay?

If you thought touching our beloved Surf Club was already dramatic enough, the ramifications of the explosion will be even worse.

“There is definitely a lot of trauma that comes from this whole experience of Stunning Organics and it’s not the end of the line for the company either with this big explosion. It’s the bottom of one mountain and then the beginning of another one,” Thomson admitted.

But there is a bright side for the 26-year-old actor and that was working alongside Symons every day.

“It’s actually been such a gift to be able to work with Emily,” she said. “Being able to do this storyline and get to know and hang out with Emily so much more has been such a treat.”

Thomson could also say the same for her other co-stars.

“Sometimes it gets super intense but it’s always good because you have people around you that are very supportive and on your side. It does feel like a team, that’s for sure.”

Angelina Thomson always knew she would be on Home and Away

Thomson, who has been playing the role of Kirby for one year, grew up watching the show from her family home on the Gold Coast, with her ultimate goal to play a role on the soap.

“I remember being like, ‘I could do that’,” she revealed. “Even when I got older, I remember really feeling I was like, one day ‘I’m going to be on that show’.

“I didn’t know in what capacity it was going to look like…but I’m going to be on Home and Away whether anyone likes it or not.”

A proud Cook Island Australian, Thomson feels fortunate to be able to represent the Polynesian Islands on national television.

“Being able to represent my culture when I didn’t get to see that growing up feels like it was exciting, but also heartbreaking,” she admitted. “It’s an honour to be able to represent my culture — and not just from the Cook Islands, all of Polynesia, anyone who is a person of colour, to be able to see themselves represented is something that I didn’t get to see often growing up.

“That is, something I hold in high regard, that I find is a privilege and it is so important, and it’s always my motivation, to be that for other people.”

Home and Away’s explosive episode airs at 7.00 pm on June 6 on 7 and 7Plus.
