There were hints dropped in the recent edition of Who magazine, that she is picking up her studies where they were left off prior to Packed to the Rafters becoming a major success and dominating her time.
Also, after starring as a love-torn soul in Home and Away in 2007, McNamee is probably tired of playing relatively one-dimensional, man-orientated characters.
“Any opportunity I get to do something a bit different -- a bit controversial -- I grab," she told the Telegraph.
McNamee’s last episode goes to air on Seven in September, but will not be sitting around twiddling her thumbs. She stars in the upcoming Australian horror movie The Loved Ones, which will be released at the end of September 2010.
Now it just remains to be seen how the production team will dispose of her! Tragic car accident? Peanut allergy? It remains to be seen...
