Lincoln Younes joins Home and Away as Casey Braxton, the youngest member of the troublesome Braxton brothers. Overshadowed by his older brothers Heath and Darryl, Casey has always struggled to fit in. He starts at Summer Bay High after being expelled from his last school.
Having played soccer for 14 years, Lincoln originally had his sights on a sporting career. But after being part of the Global Rock Eisteddfod Challenge in Japan in 2006, where he performed in Peter Pan, he realised acting was the passion he wanted to pursue.
Having grown up in Gosford, Canberra and Bendigo, he moved to Melbourne for his VCE and was accepted into NIDA’s one-year weekend course, “A Young Actor’s Studio”.
In 2008 while completing high school and NIDA, Lincoln successfully auditioned for the acclaimed Australian television series Tangle. He played the role of Romeo for two series and guest starred in City Homicide before starring in the Australian feature The Wedding Party (headlined at the Melbourne International Film Festival in August 2010) with Isabel Lucas and Josh Lawson.
During his final year of high school, Lincoln focused on studying and went on to start an Arts/Law degree at Melbourne University. After six months he decided to defer university to travel to London. But before he could leave, he auditioned and was offered the role of Casey and relocated to Sydney instead.
f his character Casey, Lincoln says: “I’m still figuring out Casey, he’s a mixed bag. His family has a bad reputation and he definitely has anger issues, but he is trying to break out of the mould set by his older brothers.”
