SAS Australia: Dan Ewing denies talking about himself in the third person

Home and Away’s Dan Ewing rubbishes claims he talks about himself in the third person after footage from SAS Australia went viral


Dan Ewing has hit back after he was viciously trolled for talking about himself in the third person during his SAS Australia introduction earlier this month.

The former Home and Away star, 36, says viewers don’t understand how television works and clarified that he doesn’t speak like that in real life.

He told the Imperfectly Perfect podcast: ‘I worry about any Aussie who hasn’t figured out how TV works by now and who actually believes I talk about myself in the third person.’ 

Not what it seems: Dan Ewing (pictured) has hit back after he was viciously trolled for talking about himself in the third person during his SAS Australia introduction earlier this month 

‘I mean, I haven’t done it before. Why the heck would I magically start now?’ he added.

Dan also said he believes viewers aren’t getting an honest depiction of what really happened on set of Seven’s military-style show.

‘It has more stitch-ups than a patchwork blanket,’ he said of the editing.

Fans had mocked the actor after he bizarrely referred to himself in the third person while introducing himself on the show.

‘Stepping into SAS selection is quite interesting undertaking. There’s no acting. This is Dan Ewing,’ he said.

‘So, what does Dan Ewing do when he is sleep deprived? What will Dan do when he hasn’t eaten, when he is freezing cold, getting screamed at, called all sorts of things?

‘What does Dan Ewing do when his back is against the wall?’

Viewers flocked to Twitter to ridicule his monologue, including one who wrote: ‘Why is Dan Ewing referring to himself in the third person?’ 

Another said: ‘I had zero idea who Dan Ewing was until he said his name multiple times.’

‘Dan Ewing likes to talk about Dan Ewing a lot,’ a third tweeted, while a fourth said: ‘Why does Dan Ewing speak in 3rd person? Answer: Because he’s an actor.’ 

Awkward: 'So, what does Dan Ewing do when he is sleep deprived? What will Dan do when he hasn't eaten, when he is freezing cold, getting screamed at, called all sorts of things?' he said

Dan, like his fellow SAS recruits, was exposed to tear gas in an enclosed tent and forced to strip down during the season premiere.

He added in his introduction: ‘I have nothing to prove doing SAS; I’m doing SAS because I choose to. 

‘I’m really great at my mental health, my spiritual health, I keep my emotions in check.’ 

Dan is best known for playing Heath Braxton on Home and Away from 2010 to 2014.
