Devastated! We’ve just heard that popular Home and Away star, Ben Unwin, has died.

He may have been off our screens for many years but I will never forget his bad-boy character, Jesse McGregor, on the popular TV soapie.

NSW police confirmed the incident and released a statement to Yahoo! Lifestyle saying:

“Police attended Minyon Falls, Whian Whian, responding to a concern for welfare.

“The body of a 41-year-old man was located. The death has not been treated as suspicious.”

The publication noted that he tragically passed away last week but was not specific about the cause of death.

Such A Loss

Unwin starred as Jesse between 1996 and 2000, and then returned to the Channel 7 drama in 2002 for a further three years.

He was nominated for a Logie in 1997 for Most Popular New Talent.

Unwin then quit acting in 2005 and reportedly had a career change, studying law and working as a solicitor.

Our thoughts are with his family.
