Ray went on to say everyone on Home and Away worked incredibly hard this past year, with filming made harder due to covid.  

‘Everybody has worked incredibly hard through the Covid period and for our show to be nominated six times is just fantastic,’ he said. 

‘It is a reflection of everybody in the cast and crew,’ he told the publication.

Ray is one of the longest-serving actors in the business, appearing in every season of Home and Away since it began in 1988.   

‘It felt pretty good but it’s also a bit of a surprise,’ Ray said of his nomination, which was announced on May 15.  

Ray previously won a Gold Logie back in 2010.

‘I sort of thought my golden days were over 12 years ago when I won it.

‘I don’t see myself as a Gold Logie sort of a nominee. There are always plenty of people more deserving.’

Ray recently revealed the pitfalls of being an actor.

‘When I was younger as a freelance actor, I wondered whether I’d be able to feed myself let alone anybody else,’ he said in a resurfaced Telegraph interview. 

‘It’s a funny old profession, it’s very precarious, it’s a pretty dodgy old profession employment-wise.’
