Steve Peacocke is 29 and from a small town in the bush called Dubbo in New South Wales.
He has had a variety of jobs since leaving home at 16 - from labourer, to shifts on the dock unloading ships, and a stint as a 'jackeroo' on a sheep ranch.
Home and Away is his big break but he has appeared in other Aussie TV shows, including All Saints and Packed To The Rafters.
He studied communications at university and is a keen rugby player.
It was while out injured from rugby that he took up with a theatre group and discovered his love of acting.
He has a girlfriend, whom he met on an acting course.
