Aussie actress Tammin Sursok tearfully reunites with parents in Brisbane after two years apart

Tammin Sursok has finally reunited with her parents for the first time in two and a half years.

Due to COVID-19 border restrictions, the South African-Australian actress was unable to reunite with her mum and dad in Australia, despite having been Down Under for half a year.

In an emotional series of Instagram stories, the 38-year-old tearfully details how she had felt “numb” for the past two and a half years, and now that she was reuniting with her parents, she couldn’t believe it was happening.

“My parents are almost at the border. Please think good things that all goes smoothly,” Sursok, who lives in Brisbane, wrote on her Instagram Story yesterday.

Due to “so many people” wanting to cross the border into Queensland, Sursok’s parents’ drive was taking “a lot longer” than usual.

Sursok then shared text messages between herself and her mum, who sent her a photo of them stuck in traffic at the state border.

“Tell me when you are through. My heart is [pounding],” Sursok wrote to her mum.

“AND WE ARE IN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Sursok’s mum eventually sent, to which Sursok replied: “Omg. I’ve been numb [because] I didn’t want it to not happen.”

In a series of tear-filled videos, Sursok then explained how she had been feeling throughout the separation.

“I feel like I’ve been so numb,” Sursok said as she wiped her eyes.

“Like I haven’t been able to cry about the situation for like two and a half years and then like the minute that I heard she was like through the border, it’s like I can’t stop crying.”

“There’s like a lot of… I know for so many people around… this time there’s a lot to lose, and a lot of time that you can’t get back, and I feel like almost… I feel angry,” Sursok continued.

“I feel angry for my kids that they missed out on years of their life, they’ll never have those memories, and I know that a lot of people are in much worse situations but I do believe that pain is valid, all pain is valid, so we should be careful about comparing people’s trauma or pain, whatever it is.”

Sursok said she wanted to share this experience and her feelings because even though it feels “really uncomfortable being vulnerable,” she feels that honesty and sharing stories such as hers is “the only way.”

“We couldn’t come into Australia for almost two years and then when we did, there was a surge and the borders closed the second day we arrived in hotel quarantine. We were in the same state for 6 hours but were not able to see each other.

“The borders opened two days ago and my parents drove 10 hours to meet us. I’m never letting them go. If you are in this situation my heart is with you.”
