Actor Dan Macpherson is counting down the days until he is reunited with his one-year-old son Austin Xavier.

The former Neighbours star, 40, is completing a mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine in Sydney after returning from Spain.

On Thursday, Dan shared a cute throwback photo with Austin, writing: ‘Not long now til crisp autumn mornings & surf checks with the Little King. Day 8.’

‘Not long now!’ Dan Macpherson counts down the days until he is reunited with son Austin, one, as the actor completes his THIRD hotel quarantine after wrapping AppleTV sci-fi series in Spain last month

Just a few days earlier Dan had said he was using the forced isolation to ‘decompress, unwind the beaten body and chill the whirling mind’, adding he was most excited for ‘family hugs and ocean swims on the other side’.

Dan had been in Fuerteventura, the second largest of Spain’s Canary Islands, for almost weight weeks to film Apple TV’s new science fiction series, Foundation.

Based on the book series of the same name by Isaac Asimov, Dan is set to play Hugo.

‘That’s a wrap on Foundation for me. A final Fuerteventura sunset. What an adventure it’s been,’ he wrote on March 30.

Dan added: ‘Time to get home and hug my son, and one day soon he will get to see his dad up there in space, in the sci fi world of Isaac Asimov. What a ride.’
