Neighbours heartthrob unrecognisable 28 years after soap and quitting acting for 'normal job' | The Sun

NEIGHBOURS heartthrob Dan Falzon looks unrecognisable 28 years after his role in the soap.

50-year-old Dan may have been a heartthrob star of the Aussie show, but he's since quit acting for 'normal job'.

Nearly three decades after playing young tearaway Rick Alessi, the Maltese star now works in eco tourism – and previously qualified as a paramedic with St. John Ambulance.

Dan might have secured a nomination for Most Popular Actor at the 1st National Television Awards, but he bade farewell to Ramsay Street in 1995.

He said at the time, "I had a phenomenal run on the show and leaving was a big decision to make but there comes a time when you know that it's finally right."

After training in healthcare, Dan shared his skill in the 2014 Nine Network docuseries, Outback Paramedic.

Now, he's the managing director of operations at Earth Sanctuary, an eco-tourism and astronomy business.

Tom, as well as their sibling Ben and dad Joe, are members of the team too, and ever-busy Dan gives tours to visitors as a Senior Adventure Guide.

The brothers said, “We have built the business up to offer award – winning day and evening tours to visitors to the central Australian outback.
