Todd Lasance has admitted that he was surprised to be nominated for a Logie Award this year.

The former Home and Away star was in the running for the 'Most Popular Actor' prize at the recent ceremony, following a turbulent few months which saw him arrested for possessing cocaine and ultimately plead guilty to the charge.

Speaking to TV Week about his Logie nod, Lasance confessed: "I really didn't expect it this year, after everything."

The 25-year-old added that winning last year's prize could have also led to him being absent from this year's shortlist, commenting: "This year was a total surprise because I thought people would think, 'Oh well, he won it last year' and might not get behind me again."

Although Packed To The Rafters star Hugh Sheridan eventually won the gong, Lasance said that fans are continuing to support him as he moves on from his role as Summer Bay's Aden Jefferies.

He explained: "From day one, it's been fantastic. The audience response to Aden was incredible, and to have that continued support has been awesome." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
