Heine attended Telopea Park School and St Clare’s College in Canberra, Australia.
And while their romance was tumultuous on the show, off-screen Burgess and Cariba Heine, who played Rikki for four years, became a fully-fledged couple.
They spent time together in Australia late last year, enjoying the company of a koala and taking in the sights of Sydney Harbour.
Cariba is currently finishing filming for TV movie Everything Is Doing Great.
Beyond the teenage drama series Burgess also worked on Dance Academy in 2010, Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door in 2015 and Australia Day in 2017.
And as most Australian celebrities get their start, he reprised the role of Sean Evans on Home And Away.
Born on the Gold Coast Burgess has certainly enjoyed roles with a number of national productions, but the love story of Prince Harry and his American fiancé Meghan Markle will spell the beginning of his international career.
