"Home and Away" chronicles the lives, loves, happiness, and heart-breaks of the residents of Summer Bay, a small coastal town in New South Wales, Australia.
Shane Withington is an Australian actor best known for playing surf life guard John Palmer in Home and ...
John Palmer is a loveable larrikin, he likes to think he is a capable handyman, but an electrician he is not, which was highlighted when he blew up the fuse box on Indi and Romeo’s opening night of the Gym. However he has tried his hand at a few things, running for council, managing the Juice Bar and working as a Surf Life Saver.
He can be very competitive, as was seen when he challenged Harvey Ryan to a fitness test. He ended up in hospital but still thought he had won.
His past relationships were complicated. He was very tough on his step-son Trey and discovered he had a daughter, although an imposter claiming to be his daughter made things very confusing.
He fell in love and was married to the Principal of Summer Bay High, Gina Austin, and they were in the process of adopting Jett James when Gina died suddenly from a brain aneurism.
John was left shattered and with serious doubts about his ability to be accepted by the adoption agency as a suitable father, due to his past health issues. John and Jett were delighted when it was finally agreed that they could live together and they now have a wonderful relationship, although Jett often appears to have more maturity than John.
He also has a close friendship with Marilyn Chambers and the attraction between them has been growing, but both are terrified of rejection and doing the wrong thing by Gina and Jett.
They have started a business together 'Summer Bay Tours', and this could make or break them but Jett is convinced that they belong together.
