As a friend, actor turned solicitor Ben Unwin was loving, supportive and loyal.
Tributes are flowing in for “Onion” as he was affectionately known, after the former Home and Away actor died aged 41 in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales.
A NSW police statement released to Yahoo Lifestyle said police responded to a welfare call on August 14 when they found his body. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
Here is some of the news coverage. Post continues after video.
The Australian actor was most known for his time in Summer Bay, but he actually started his career in 1991 as a 13-year-old in the Aussie sitcom Eggshells. The show ran for two seasons and 15 episodes on the ABC.
He joined the cast of Home and Away in 1996, a month after completing high school, and was there until 2005 (with a two year hiatus between 2000-2002).
His character was “bad boy” Jesse McGregor, which was especially written for him after he failed to get the part he auditioned for.
