Played by Dan EwingMad, bad and dangerous to know, Heath Braxton was easily the most volatile of the River Boys. Feared by police, Mangrove River residents, and most of the River Boys themselves, Heath had a short fuse, foul temper, and powerful left hook. He rarely thought things through and was always getting in trouble.
More so than either of his brothers, Heath was a River Boy through and through. He loved the camaraderie and sense of family, not to mention the respect that came with being a member.
Life looked pretty simple for Heath, that was until he met Bianca Scott. She was gorgeous, intelligent and way out of his league.
Whilst opposites attract, he had no idea how to deal with such a sophisticated woman but the chemistry between them was undeniable. Even when she married Liam Murphy, he still couldn’t let go.
Heath’s softer side emerged when he found out he had a daughter, Darcy, the result of previous fling with her mother Tegan. He became a devoted father and has tried everything in his power to maintain a relationship with her, even though her grandmother has made things impossible at times.
The revelation of Heath’s paternal nature, appealed to Bianca and after many ups and downs they acknowledged their love and were blissfully happy when their son Rocco was born. Tragically, his life was cut short when he became the victim of SIDS.
Heath and Bianca took a long time to recover, but once they pulled through they realized that their love was still strong and they finally married (after one aborted wedding) in front of family and friends on a cliff top overlooking the ocean.
Will the bad boy and school principal survive all the challenges thrown at them? Lets hope love conquers all!
