Last month, it was confirmed that Will is to pay a visit to the town after a five-year absence, to the delight of his former foster mother Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger).
In scenes which air in Australia next week, Will turns up in the Bay alongside his young daughter Lily - and soon admits that all is not well with his marriage to Gypsy.
Speaking to TV Week, Drayson explained: "He and Gypsy are going through a rough patch, so he comes home to clear his head. They're not divorced - they're just having a break."
Asked how long Will stays in Summer Bay for, the actor replied: "I can't tell you that, but I'm going to be around for a while!"
Drayson also claimed that Gypsy's portrayer Kimberley Cooper would be interested in making a comeback of her own in the future.
He said: "I've spoken to Kimberley and she's really keen to return, but she couldn't fit it around her wedding plans."
Lily - now 11 years of age - is being played by actress Charlie Rose Maclennan, who previously portrayed Zoe O'Donnell on the BBC's Sydney-based soap Out of the Blue. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
