actor Patrick O’Connor is heating up the screen on the show with his racy scenes with co-star Sophie Dillman.
But the 25-year-old actor revealed things are a lot less sexy than they appear on the show after the on-screen lovers filmed at Parachilna at the Flinders Ranges.
Speaking to on Monday, he said: ‘It’s an awkward situation. When we were shooting, when you’re in that heat.’

Patrick added far from it getting hot and heavy, it did get sweaty.
‘I’m a dude, certain things are sweaty,’ he added, but went on to say both of them were ‘disgustingly sweaty’ by the end of the scene.
The pair play Summer Bay’s new lovebirds, with Patrick playing Dean Thompson and Sophie playing Ziggy Astoni on screen.

It comes after Sophie revealed her own secrets about love scenes, saying she calls out stars who have smelly breath.
Speaking to earlier this month, the 25-year-old said: ‘You have to call them out if they’ve got bad breath!’
‘I mean, kissing anyone with 60 people standing around staring at you is always going to be weird,’ Sophie said.

Pucker up! The actress revealed that she often eats something ‘gross’ before a kissing scene to ‘psyche’ her co-stars out
The Summer Bay star added she has a unique way of dealing with an unpleasant kisser when she’s acting.
‘Sometimes you eat something really gross before a kissing scene to psych them out,’ Sophie said.
Ziggy’s relationship with Dean Thompson has lately been heating up on the long-running soap and Sophie and Patrick were spotted getting close while filming scenes in Sydney’s Palm Beach recently.
