She’s best known for her role on long-running soap opera Home And Away…so do you recognise her?

She’s an Australian actress known for her roles in iconic television shows such as Heartbreak High and Police Rescue.

However her most well-known role is her appearance on long-running soap opera Home And Away. 

Her character first arrived in Summer Bay as a runaway bride, so do YOU recognise the star from this sweet childhood throwback as a flower girl?

Guess who! Ada Nicodemou posted a sweet throwback snap to her first time as a flowergirl

The star in question is 41-year-old Ada Nicodemou, who has played Leah Patterson-Baker on Home And Away since 2000.

The brunette took to Instagram on Friday to share the adorable snap from her youth.

Ada captioned the photo: ‘I think I was five or six and it was the first time I was a flower girl.’

'Still the same smile': One fan said that Ada looked the same as she did in the old photograph (Pictured at the Jersey Boys premiere)

Last year she told TV WEEK: ‘I love the people on Home And Away. I love the crew and I love the cast.

‘We have such a great laugh. There isn’t a day when I’m like, “I don’t want to be here anymore” − like, literally in 18 years, which is pretty rare.

‘I’m a Greek girl too, so I like stability and don’t like change.’

Ada also starred in 1990s hit show Heartbreak High, which was her first acting role.
