Character: Evan Hancock
Actor: Nicholas Opolski
Teacher
A teacher at Erinsborough High, Evan Hancock moved to the street with his wife Maggie and children, Leo and Emily and Matt, (a son from his first marriage to Genevieve). His other son Chris was at boarding school when the Hancocks moved to the Street.
Progressive education
Although thought of by some as a bit of a ‘daggy lefty’, he was very committed to progressive education and was a devoted father. Evan's easy going manner made him popular with his kids and students alike. That's not to say he didn't run into problems. Sometimes, his kids were embarrassed to have a high school teacher as a father, while his students have been known to take advantage of his good nature.
Devotion
Maggie and Evan's darkest hour came when their two year old daughter was killed. It looked as if lightening may have struck twice when young Matt was involved in his own automobile fiasco, luckily he surived.
But while his culpability led to their home being auctioned off to pay expenses, Evan’s support for his son was always rock solid. After the accident, Evan and the family moved to the country so that he could take up another teaching position.
