Viewers of the Aussie soap will better remember that Mark hopped up next to see Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Guy Pearce and the gang – but now there’s no neighbor in sight.
After leaving the show, Mark took over from Chris Evans to co-host The Big Breakfast with Zoe Ball.
He went on to appear in many acclaimed films and theater shows – winning a Laurence Olivier Award in 2000 for his one man show.
But these days, the 61-year-old ex-Ramsey Street favorite has long been saying goodbye to the showbiz lifestyle.
Mark – who played Joe Mangel on the hit show – is completely unrecognizable on his farm as he walks away from his old life.
Under a bushy beard, he lives miles away from anywhere, “finishing a magical acre in the wild” somewhere south of Lake Vyrnwy in Powys.
Mark has been an increasingly vocal political and anti-fascism activist in recent years, reports Wales Online.
He couldn’t enjoy life on his farm anymore and he tweeted, “I got out of the loop. And what a loop loop it is.
“We moved to HQ and tweaked a magical acre in nature. I’ve been as busy as a farmer
“We are now forest anarchists and proud to be Welsh. ”
He loves his place – and the previously London-based star has told fans all about the move.
“We bought before the pandemic and spent six months selling and moving,” he said.
“It was scorching to avoid Covid and fascism… but we survive… a beautiful place just south of Lake Vyrnwy.
“It was in a state but we’re doing it pretty… beautiful part of the world… away from the angry crowd… real.” ”
Mark won a Laurence Olivier Award in 2000 – and now has a new life goal, as well as more facial hair!
