Love is greater than the physical.
Since making his debut as Tane Parata at the beginning of 2020, Ethan Browne’s Summer Bay journey has been closely followed by Home And Away viewers.
When we say the 30-year-old has quickly turned into one of the program’s most adored heartthrobs, we definitely mean it. He is far from an eyesore.
Tane, a Summer Bay character, has had a very turbulent first year on screen and, unsurprisingly, similarly volatile romance storylines, whereas Ethan keeps his personal life much more under wraps.

Ethan shared a breathtaking Instagram video of the moment he reunited with Aaylah in 2020, who was completely unprepared for his arrival.
“surprising my child after being apart for almost a year. “An occasion I had long fantasized and visualized,” Ethan captioned his post.
“This stretch’s most challenging section defies description. It defies explanation and is incomprehensible. COVID has restricted our ability to physically visit our loved ones and travel without restriction.
Despite the fact that Aaylah appears to live in New Zealand and Ethan is on the Home And Away set in Australia, the actor expressed his joy at being reunited with his daughter.
“But love is not limited by space or time, and the separation and passing of the years have only made our relationship stronger. Our hearts are once again full because we are where we are right now,” he wrote in the heartfelt reunion video.
“I send all of my love and strength to the parents who have lost contact with their kids as a result of this year’s events, as well as to those who won’t be able to spend Christmas with their loved ones. You are my entire heart to my daughter. “My angel, my love, and my life.”
Ethan was only 16 years old when he gave birth to his daughter Aaylah. This incident, according to his NIDA profile, was a “major turning point” in his life.
Despite the fact that Ethan doesn’t frequently discuss his daughter in public, the young father shared a touching tribute to Aaylah in September 2022, the month in which her 14th birthday fell on Father’s Day.
“Happy 14th birthday to my amazing daughter, Aaylah,” he wrote alongside a collection of father-daughter pictures taken in his native New Zealand. “Truly blessed to have spent both Father’s Day and her birthday together,” he added.
He shifted his focus away from the performance. Ethan made the decision to pursue a career in civil engineering because he wanted to support his family. This choice ultimately brought him back to his acting passion and landed him a job in Brisbane.
Ethan claimed that people in Wairoa, New Zealand, “frowned upon” performing.
“Rugby culture was very prevalent where I grew up, a small rural community. A man refused to perform in the theater; last year, he provided the Daily Telegraph with an explanation.
