Home and Away star Lincoln Younes killed off

ONE of Home and Away’s notorious River Boys has headed to the great surf club in the sky.

Series regular Casey Braxton, played by Lincoln Younes, was killed off in tonight’s episode.

His death came amid dramatic scenes as the gang raced to save his half-brother Josh, who had been kidnapped by Jake Pirovic.

Casey’s murder is part of a long-running drugs-and-revenge storyline that stretches back to 2012, and Pirovic also killed series favourite Charlie Buckton (Esther Anderson).

Darryl ‘Brax’ Braxton (Steve Peacocke) was Pirovic’s intended target, but fans of Logie-winner will heave a sigh of relief that the actor, one of the show’s most popular, hasn’t checked out of the Bay.

Younes, 22, has been part of the show since February 2011, and earlier this year he confirmed that he is interested in pursuing a career in Hollywood when he departs the long-running soap.

Younes will next be seen in season two of Nine’s period drama, Love Child. Fans will have a chance to farewell him from Summer Bay with his funeral episode on September 23.

Home and Away, Channel 7, 7pm AEST
