Host Lawrence Mooney played a clip from a Dan’s introductory video package, which shows the thespian bizarrely referring to himself as ‘Dan Ewing’. 

‘This is Dan Ewing. What does Dan Ewing do when he is sleep-deprived? What does Dan Ewing do when his back’s against the wall?’ he said in the clip. 

Dan laughed, responding: ‘I refuse to believe your listeners believe that for a second’, before blaming the show’s producers for taking his statements out of context.  

The truth! Elsewhere in his interview, Dan revealed the truth about why he kept referring to himself in third person while speaking to producers on SAS Australia – explaining that his statements were taken out of context   

‘[Producers asked me] a lot of questions about Home And Away’s fanbase. Obviously, it changed my life, changed my career,’ he explained. 

‘[During filming, producers] were saying ‘So, what would your fans think of you on the course?’ So I answered, ‘I think they know me as Heath Braxton… but it’s going to be interesting for them [to see], what will Dan Ewing [do]?’  

Dan also insisted his ‘villain’ edit was a ‘missed opportunity’ for the producers, who could have instead focused upon his mental health battle. 

Dan said he believes a a storyline about mental health could have encouraged ‘blokes at the pub’ who watch the show to speak openly about their own emotional struggles. 

Setting the record straight. Dan explained that producers had asked him how Home And Away fans would react to seeing him on the course – prompting him to reply – ‘I think they know me as Heath Braxton… but it’s going to be interesting for them [to see], what will Dan Ewing [will do]’.
