He may have had his own soap opera debut on Home and Away this week, but TV weatherman Sam Mac isn’t the first Sunrise star to showcase his acting skills on the long-running program.

During Wednesday’s Sunrise broadcast, Sam reminded viewers that host David ‘Kochie’ Koch actually enjoyed a two-line cameo on the show back in 2007.

He proceeded to play Kochie’s rather underwhelming performance, which showed him mingling by the bar at the Summer Bay surf club.

Kochie is seen holding a stubby and saying ‘yeah sure.’

Sam couldn’t help but mock Kochie over his blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, saying “that’s it! That is literally it. All of two words!”

Kochie, 65 went on to reveal some insider knowledge about what its like to be an extra on-set, explaining that producers told him to mouth the word ‘watermelon’ over and over again ‘because you’re not allowed to make a noise when you’re talking’.

Sam, who appeared on Wednesday night’s episode as a ‘VIP guest’ at a Summer Bay soiree, pointed out that he, unlike Kochie, wasn't in a background scene.

‘I was actually acting!’ he teased.

Home and Away fans saw a Summer Bay charity gala turn into a disaster on Wednesday night’s episode, after a mysterious stranger launched a gas attack through the air vents.

Sam was briefly pictured in a promotional trailer for the episode, showing him arriving at the swanky event in a suit and tie, as onlookers referred to him as ‘the VIP’.
