Sarah Roberts has teased a return to Home and Away.

Sarah, who is of Sri-Lankan descent, said that her role on Home and Away as the gambling-addicted Willow was a welcome change of pace in her career.

The Wog Boys Forever star said that up until Home and Away, she was largely offered stereotyped roles based on her ethnicity. 

She told the publication she loved playing the ‘bad girl’ on the Aussie soap.

‘And I was still Sri Lankan, but it wasn’t rammed down everyone’s throats.’

After marrying Home and Away co-star James Stewart in 2019, Sarah eventually left the series two years later, but says she remains close to her old castmates. 

‘Being on that show feels like a holiday too, because you just get to hang out with all your favourite people at work every day.’

Meanwhile, rumours that Sarah and James have split have emerged once again, after months of speculation.

The Home and Away favourite was notably absent from the premiere of his wife’s latest film, Wog Boys Forever, earlier this month in Melbourne.

James was ‘nowhere to be seen on the red carpet’ and is no longer following Sarah on Instagram.

However, Sarah’s agent shut down claims of a split and the actress was still wearing her wedding ring at the event. 

Rumours of the pair’s breakup had been swirling for many months and they had reportedly been undergoing couple’s counselling in a bid to restore their relationship.

James and Sarah got engaged in November 2018. He proposed at the restaurant where they’d had their first date the previous year. 

‘Family life is going great; we’re both really proud of each other,’ Sarah told Stellar Magazine last week.

The actress added that the couple are happily parenting Scout, the ten-year-old daughter her husband, 46, shares with his ex, Jessica Marais, 37. 

‘We’re busy bringing up Scout. She’s in Grade 4 now [and] becoming a little lady’ Sarah said. 

Sarah denied all rumours of a break-up in Stellar Magazine earlier in September, telling the publication that family life was going great
