The latest episode to air on Network Seven in Australia saw the actress's character Ruby Buckton bid farewell to Summer Bay after confessing to a terrible crime.
Earlier this week, Australian viewers saw Dexter Walker (Charles Cottier) at the centre of a horrifying road accident while driving his sister Indi's new car. The incident was a result of Ruby tampering with the brakes in a desperate attempt to get rid of Indi.
Plagued with regret and realising that she deserved to be brought to justice, Ruby handed herself in to the police after saying a final farewell to Brax (Steve Peacocke).
Writing on Twitter today (August 15), Breeds told followers: "Thank you. Such beautiful feedback. So sad that it's all over, but kind of relieved to let poor Ruby go and heal... And my Eyes.. Love you."
Breeds's fiancé Luke Mitchell, who plays Romeo Smith on the show, paid tribute to the 25-year-old on his own Twitter page after the episode had aired.
Mitchell tweeted: "Ladies & Gentlemen, put your hands together for the incomparable Miss Rebecca Breeds! #HollywoodIsWaiting #HomeAndAway"
Meanwhile, Lincoln Younes - better known as Casey Braxton - wrote: "Congratulations to @BecEBreeds on a phenomenal last episode... It was a pleasure working with you. See you on bigger and better things!!! X"
News of Breeds's decision to leave Home and Away first emerged in May and was confirmed the following month.
Home and Away fans in the UK will see Ruby's final scenes on Channel 5 on Wednesday, October 10.
