Homer Yanos played by Deniz Akdeniz

Tomorrow When The War Began Homer

The larrikin of the Tomorrow movie is Homer Yannos who is played by 21 year old Australian actor Deniz Akdeniz. He is best friends with Ellie -- they grew up together in neighbouring properties and both have a deep admiration and respect for each other, though they are both very competitive and try to outdo each other in just about everything whenever they get a chance.

For all his joking around, when the group has to come to terms with the country being invaded, Homer steps up to the task in a big way and shows a maturity and strength beyond his years that helps to organise the group into a cohesive guerrilla force to be reckoned with.

Before his role as Homer Yanos in the Tomorrow When The War Began movie,
Deniz Akdeniz was involved in musical theatre when he was younger and has also made various appearances on Australian television, the most recent being his role in Disney Channel Australia’s “As the Bell Rings” from 2007 to 2009.
