Watch: Home and Away's Steve Peacocke talks about Charlie's mysterious return to life

One year ago, Home and Away fans were left stunned by the shooting death of Charlie Buckton (Esther Anderson).

Now, with recent reports that Esther will return for some new episodes, her co-star Steve Peacocke, who plays Brax, has dropped a few hints about his character's deceased love returning to the show. But how?

Steve told Digital Spy, "I just thought, 'How the hell are they going to do it?' because she's dead! But then I read the material and I thought, 'Wow, this is actually a really cool way that they've gone about it'."

"[Charlie is] not back in real life, but the way she comes back is pretty clever. When I read it, I thought, 'Oh wow, that's a cool way to do this'."

Check out the video above for a few more insights into Charlie's return to Aussie screens.

Curious about how many episodes Charlie might grace?

"We've shot some stuff and there's more to come, I think. Well, maybe!" Steve explained.

Sounds like a few dream sequences – or maybe a Ghost-style romantic haunting! Or perhaps a what-if scenario if proposing what could’ve been? Share your predictions below!
