Kimberley Cooper is returns to Summer Bay as Gypsy Nash with her daughter Lily.

With her ex...Will Smith, in prison for the murder of Penn Graham, Gypsy has been re-united with her daughter.

Kimberley returned to the set just over month ago after a stint in Los Angeles. "I left at 21 and now, somehow, I'm 26," she said.

"I did panto in London, then went to New York and did some theatre there. That was amazing - some of the best times of my life.

"I went to LA where I just saw so many people burn out trying to establish a career and a life - it's hard work, so I quit acting for three years."

Kimberley said she made ends meet working in a bar and it was at a bar that she met her husband. "I was watching a baseball game, one of my favourite players hit a walk-off home run in the 12th inning, I yelled, the guy behind me yelled, he was cute, the rest is history"
