It’s been five years since the series finale of Packed to the Rafters – that’s right five years.

Many stars of the show have continued their careers in the entertainment industry.

Jessica Marais (Rachel Rafter) went on to star in hit series’ Love Child and The Wrong Girl; James Stewart (Jake Barton) now stars on Home and Away; and Rebecca Gibney (Julia Rafter) is the star of Seven’s drama series Wanted.

But what about George Houvardas who played Nick ‘Carbo’ Karandonis?

Since filming for the show wrapped, the actor has kept a relatively low profile.

He actually hung up his acting hat after the Packed to the Rafters, instead deciding to go into business with his family.


George has been running Greek restaurant ‘Piato’ with his loved ones, located in McMahons Point in Sydney.

However, the 29-year-old appears to be ready to return to the spotlight, and is set to hit the big screen on August 23 in Chasing Comets.

Along with his new role, comes a serious physical transformation.

“Proud of this little gem Chasing Comets out August 23… yep that’s Me not Mel Gibson with beard..,” he recently wrote on Instagram, referring to his new facial hair. 

The new flick also stars a whole host of Aussie actors including Dan Ewing, Isabel Lucas, Stan Walker, Rhys Muldoon and Kat Hoyos.

Take a look at the trailer for the movie below.
