Samara Weaving is the latest star to join the Bonds family as the new Bonds Youth Ambassador. The stunning actress, who stars as Indi on Home and Away, recently stripped down for the fun photo shoot to model great basics and underwear (check out her campaign here), and we’ve got your exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Samara working the camera. We also quizzed the 20-year-old, whose uncle is Hugo Weaving, on whether she’ll make the jump to Hollywood and what she likes to do in her downtime.
How did you get involved with Bonds?
I've always worn Bonds. I love their effortless basics and also their cool work out gear offerings. I think I embody a certain attitude and style that comes with the brand.
What have been your highlights from your time on Home and Away? Favourite storylines?
Hawaii! It was an amazing location to shoot. I hope they write another storyline overseas somewhere exotic for Indi!

Home and Away has given us some of our brightest stars — is Hollywood on the cards for you?
Home and Away has definitely been a breeding ground for talented actors. It’s been a fantastic opportunity to be able to work on the show and I enjoy it so much. I'm not sure where my career will take me but I'd love to work overseas at some stage.
What’s a typical day for you like?
Every day is so different, the set gets a little crazy sometimes! But normally I’d be waking up really early to get to the studio or location. Wardrobe and hair is always first up and this is when I need my daily coffee! I could be doing between 1 and 10 scenes depending on the day and storyline and each scene takes on average an hour to film. So I could have a really short day and go home at 10 a.m. and have some me time or I could be on the beach till 10 p.m. trying to stay awake and warm! It always changes.
What do you like to do in your downtime?
I’m a book worm and I’m addicted to sitcoms and cartoons. My perfect me time is a cup of tea, an episode of Friends or a good book and I am set.
Who’s your favourite Bonds girl?
That is such a hard question! So many amazingly talented women have embraced the brand. Sarah Murdoch and Rachael Taylor are definitely up there!
