Cassie Howarth is an actress, known for Home and Away (1988), Highrise (2011) and Deranged High (2010).
Born on March 25, Cassie Howarth was raised in a close knit family with two older brothers.
She likens her hometown of Avoca Beach on the Central Coast of NSW to her new fictional home Summer Bay. There's the same laid-back lifestyle and idyllic landscape but none of the drama!
Cassie describes acting as a constant challenge she thrives on. She enjoys taking the audience on a journey and evoking different emotions from them.
After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies at the University of Sydney, Cassie trained in acting across various institutions in New York and Sydney including the Atlantic Acting School, Stella Adler Conservatory and The Actors Centre.
With guest credits in Packed to the Rafters, and theatre roles in The Crucible, Happy Hour and The Circus, Cassie was 'over the moon' when she landed the role of Hannah on Home and Away.
"I had grown up watching the show and was super excited to be part of the cast. It is kind of surreal acting with household names - I keep having to pinch myself that I landed such a fantastic role and on a long-standing Australian drama."
Hannah is a free spirit but her life changed and the weight of responsibility fell heavily on her shoulders after the death of her sister. Hannah's current battle is to extract her sister's twins Oscar and Evelyn from their controlling father Ethan.
"Hannah has to now struggle to stay selfless and responsible, to make sure the twins have the life their mother wanted for them. She is a strong, determined woman who will fight fiercely for her family, but needs to feel loved as she has a fear of being alone. "
Listing travel as a hobby and passion, Cassie was based in New York for three years, backpacked through South and Central America and ticked Borneo off the list last month. Cassie loves good food, taking dance classes at Sydney Dance Company and has just started free diving.
