His childhood was plagued with sexual abuse at the hands of his grandfather, while Aden's father, Larry Jefferies (Paul Gleeson) became an alcoholic.
Lasance and scriptwriters have both pointed out that these events impacted on Aden's life and contribute to his destructive personality.
En el 2007 salió con el actor Bobby Morley, quien interpretó a Drew Curtis en Home and Away, la relación terminó en marzo del 2008.
A further search leads them to Amanda but despite Dean's best efforts he is unable to save her.
It’s a big role for Jess Tovey too, who’s in the middle of her 20s and a peaking career. I imagine that’s one of the hardest things you’ve done. I had such a great time on that show, the cast were really close to each other, so I was saying goodbye to a lot. My family and my friends all got together and held a wake for Belle — we all wore black, lit candles, the whole thing! And then the aftermath, the funeral, when all these characters — who are my friends in real life — are mourning my character, crying, talking about her, how much they miss her; it sounds silly, but it was like watching them miss me, in a way. [Laughs] This is embarrassing, but quite a long time.
Recently, she’s enjoyed lead roles in two acclaimed Australian series — ‘s main characters in 2006. And on top of that I was really close to the guy who played my husband [Todd Lasance, who plays Aden Jefferies]. I mean when you leave a show, you mourn the time you’ve spent there – that’s one thing.
Belle was a fan-favourite and a focal point of the show for three and a half years, until the actress decided to quit in 2009 — and the writers decided to kill her off. ’ It’s a weird thing to be told, that you’re going to DIE. I was lying on a bed, and he was crying, screaming, and the cast and crew are watching, but I have to be dead. But the finality of it, the fact that this character that you spent so long playing is not going to come back. The other thing is I was 17 when I started on , and I was playing a character who was going through a lot of the same things I was. I really felt connected to her, so in that way it was kind of like losing a friend or something. Did people come up to you on the street after you died, to talk it through?
After a hard battle with drugs and a cancer diagnosis, Belle died dramatically in her husband Aden’s arms soon after their honeymoon.? But in some ways it made sense — and I was kind of glad, because it felt pretty final. It’s weird to admit this, you know — it’s a TV show — but I was with those people for ten hours a day for four years. People still come up to me to talk about it, which is weird.
En el 2006 obtuvo su primer papel importante en la televisión cuando se unió al elenco de la exitosa serie australiana Home and Away donde interpretó a la atrevida y única Belle Taylor hasta el 2009 luego de que su personaje muriera en las manos de su esposo a causa del cáncer.
