The Australian actress, who quit the soap recently after five years of playing Martha McKenzie, said that she is currently going through a "time out" period in her career.
Gordon told The Daily Telegraph: "I have to admit it has been a really huge transition for me. I think anyone who leaves a show like Home And Away needs to go through a transition period.
"You just need time out, you need to figure out what you want [and] what direction you are heading. Home And Away is the only thing that I know in terms of acting. I really need to expand my knowledge and learn as much as I can."
Gordon recently said: "The whole audition process, oh my God, it is terrifying. I did it on Home And Away and I got the job and I know it is not that easy. Now it is like, 'Welcome to the real world, Jodi'."
