Rebecca Elizabeth Breeds (born 17 June 1987) is an Australian actress known for her roles as Cassie Cometti in the third series of Blue Water High and as series regular Ruby Buckton in the soap opera Home and Away.

Early life[edit]

Breeds attended Sutherland Shire Christian School from kindergarten to year 10 and then St Andrew's Cathedral School for Years 11 and 12, and was Drama Captain in 2005. At the end of 2005, Breeds, in her capacity as Drama Captain, along with the Music Captain organised a Year 12 Revue; she participated in a few acts including a Spice Girls tribute and a mashup song, co-written with Nick Hansen, titled Steal My Essays/Textual Healing which discusses the Year 12 NSW HSC Advanced English Syllabus she completed in 2005.


Her acting career started with her appearance in TV ads and in a 2000 episode of Water Rats called "Jump in the Mouth". She landed her first lead role as Leah Pointin in the 2008 Australian film Newcastle.

Breeds played Cassie Cometti in series 3 of Blue Water High, but she made her first appearance in series 2, episode 3 as Tina. It was during filming on Blue Water High that she discovered she had been hired to play the role of Ruby Buckton on Home and Away, and her first scenes aired in June 2008. In June 2012, TV Week's Erin Miller reported that Breeds had filmed her final scenes and had left Home and Away.[4][5] The actress made her last appearance as Ruby during the episode broadcast on 15 August 2012.[6]

In August 2012, Nellie Andreeva from Deadline.com announced that Breeds had been cast in Rob Greenberg's We Are Men as Abby Russo. We Are Men marked her first US television role, however, the show was cancelled after poor ratings.[7] Breeds also appears in the 2013 Hindi-language Bollywood film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.[8]

In 2015, Breeds appeared in the sixth season of Pretty Little Liars and was cast as Aurora in the supernatural series The Originals.[9]
