Major has since returned to Australia after spending two years in the UK. He resides in Melbourne and began appearing in Neighbours from July 2008 as Lucas Fitzgerald. On 1 July 2013, it was announced that Major had left the show.

In December 2010 the actor revealed that he has been directing some episodes of Neighbours with the help of an existing Neighbours television director. Major has admitted that he finds the directing part of his job "very tough to fit it in with the acting" because he is "running from location to location and getting the scene shot and then putting a different hat on and directing a scene." Of his decision to take on the new role, Major has said "I want to do it all. I also do a lot of writing. I write my own plays and put them on, direct and produce them. Australia is a very small industry acting-wise. I've been doing it professionally for 21 years and you just have to have more strings to your bow than acting."

Personal life

Major has been in a relationship with singer Dallas Frasca since 2012. The couple have known each other for several years.
