Former Home and Away star Tessa James has reportedly flown to Los Angeles in a bid to launch her Hollywood career.
The actress, who is best known for playing Nicole Franklin in the soap, only married National Rugby League player Nate Myles in December. However, she is now said to have left Australia for three months to audition during the annual TV pilot season in LA.
A friend of Myles told The Daily Telegraph: “Tessa is away for three months and it’s fair to say Nate is doing it a bit tough.”
James is believed to be heading back to their Gold Coast home in late April.
Shortly before their Christmas wedding, James and Myles were plagued with relationship problem rumours around the same time that Myles was fined and sacked by former club Sydney Roosters for breaking the rules of a team alcohol ban.
James’s former Home and Away co-star Esther Anderson, who left the soap shortly after James, is also believed to be trying to launch her Hollywood career.
She recently said: “I don’t have a plan set in concrete to move there just yet. But there is so much more work over there.”
Anderson is currently believed to be dating AFL player Joel Selwood.
Hello fellow Tessa fans A new video of the Home and away cast has been released! They all talk about what they want for christmas, and it’s a really cute video. Watch it below to find out what Tessa want for christmas…
Continuing on from our previous update, I have now uploaded Tessa’s Drink driving message for you! It’s quite short, but Tessa looks amazing – and I love how she promotes such an important cause. Screencaptures are up in our galleries, and the video clip can be seen below. Enjoy all the new updates – and make sure you continue scrolling down after reading, because there has been a lot of new updates in the last few days!
Note from webmiss: This article was originally posted in March earlier this year, but unfortunately we must have missed it. It is such an important cause, and I think it’s really great how Tessa is using here fame to promote it! Therefore, I’ll post it to you now, 8 months too late hehe.
IT was a tragedy in her family decades before her birth but Tessa James is still left with the message it brought – drink driving kills. “My grandpa’s brother was killed in a car accident when he was 21,” the Home And Away star said yesterday. “Two people were drunk in a stolen car and they hit his motorbike when they went through a red light.”
The 18-year-old actress has had her P-plates since moving to Sydney from her native Melbourne two years ago. P-plate drivers must have a blood-alcohol content of zero and James has become an I Promise ambassador to remind other young drivers of their responsibility. “Being a P-plater you can’t have any alcohol in your system at all and I think that’s really good because then I’m not even tempted at all to drink,” she said.
“When I go out I take cabs or if I don’t want to drink I offer to drive . . . it’s not that hard. If someone is the designated driver that’s their responsibility for the night. “It makes such a difference.”

Leading the pack were TV sweethearts Jessica Marais and James Stewart, left, who made their first official public appearance as an engaged couple. Other celebrities included Erica Packer, Kerri-Anne and John Kennerley, Megan Gale, and Katherine Jenkins.

Kelly Osbourne was mobbed by photographers, as was Mel B. Dame Edna Everage and Jennifer Hawkins posed for photographers while Kris Smith flew solo, with Dannii Minogue in the UK. Kerri-Anne Kennerley said she was celebrating her 27th year in The Birdcage.
“It’s all about The Birdcage,” she said, wearing Alex Perry. “Everybody puts in such an effort; it’s exquisite.”

Hello netters Following the galore of updates here at Tessa James Fan the last few days, I am bringing you some more screencaptures of Tessa as Nicole! Since Telisha is capping the more recent episodes, I decided to start capping old ones for you. The episode I have added today is the episode that was shown in Norway today, here where I live – 4750.

The Halloween Party
Melody tells Ruby she’s going to get Geoff to be hers by the end of the night.
When Melody overhears that Nicole is going to the Halloween party in a devil’s costume, she gets an idea…she will wear the same outfit as Nicole! Nicole is in a pretty good mood, as things have been going well with her mum and with Geoff – even though she lost the school captaincy position.
Everyone dresses up for the big night in costumes – and Nicole isn’t impressed to see Melody in the same costume When the lights go down, Melody kisses Geoff! Nicole is furious! The two girls argue over Geoff and Geoff asks Melody to stop. Melody mentions telling Bartlett about Nicole getting in trouble with the law so Nicole says they’ve slept together. Geoff is shocked – and so is everyone else, especially Annie. Melody says Nicole has ruined Geoff. Nicole apologises for telling her in such a way and says that she loves Geoff. Geoff tells Melody he loves Nicole too.
