Dieter Brummer, who was best known for his role on Home and Away as heartthrob Shane Parrish, has passed away at the age of 45.

The actor was found dead in Sydney on Saturday afternoon. His death is not being treated as suspicious.

Fans would remember Brummer as the hunky Shane Parrish on the iconic Australian soap opera, which he starred on from 1992-1996.

Starring alongside Melissa George's character Angel Brooks, he became one half of Australia's favourite onscreen couple.

In 1995 and 1996, Brummer took out the Most Popular Actor Silver Logie for his role on the show.

Brummer went on to appear in various TV dramas, including the Underbelly series in which he played Trevor Haken, Rescue Special Ops as Nathan Pearl, Winners and Losers as Jason Ross and Neighbours as the character Troy Miller.

Brummer worked as a window cleaner between acting roles and ran his own successful business, cleaning high-rise buildings around Sydney.
