Nic Testoni, the dreamboat fisherman on Channel Seven's Home And Away, arrived at our studio apologising for his muddy arms. No, he hadn't been foraging for crabs. It was make-up mud and he'd just finished filming a segment of the show. Hadn't had time to wash it off. Didn't want to be late.

He's an outdoorsy guy - camping, bush-walking - who spent the first four years of his life on the north Queensland gem fields when his father was prospecting there.

So he's perfectly comfortable modelling casual blokes' wear. "I'm not what you'd call a suit and tie man," he explains.

Nic's had plenty of experience in front of a camera. After doing two years of an Arts course at Sydney University, he decided, aged 19, to "get a life". Three years' modelling in Milan, Paris, London and Tokyo followed.

He returned to Australia with plans to try something more challenging and began working for community television presenting a youth infotainment program, Couch Potatoes Revenge.

This led to a stint as a reporter on commercial TV and inevitably (with his looks) into the world of soap.

Aged 24 now, he's been with Home And Away as Travis Nash since January last year and recently won the Logie award for most popular new talent.

Future plans? "There's a year remaining on my contract and after that I'd like to spend time in the UK sussing work opportunities. Writing, directing, maybe even comedy - I'd love to have a go at it."

Nic's love on Home And Away is the female doctor. His real-life girlfriend is a fourth-year psychology student at Sydney University.

Here he's showing trendy weekend looks from shops at Westfield Shoppingtowns.Well suited
