He may be a long away from home, but Russell Crowe didn’t forget Anzac Day.

“Anzac Day dawn service has started at home….I’m a long way away, only in miles though, not in my heart. #LestWeForget” Crowe posted on Twitter on Friday.

The actor also retweeted a picture of a soldier standing in front of a cenotaph at the Coffs Harbour dawn service.

“@russellcrowe Dawn service at Coffs Harbour huge crowds as usual,” he wrote.

Crowe, who owns property in Nana Glen near Coffs Harbour on the NSW north coast, has been filming his directorial debut, The Water Diviner, in Turkey. Crowe also stars in the Gallipoli drama.

The film is being shot among the ruins of the Greek Ghost Village in the town of Kayakok, nestled against the Taurus Mountains in southwest Turkey.

The Water Diviner tells the story of a man who travels to Gallipoli after the bloody World War I battle to find his missing sons.

Rising Australian star Jai Courtney also features in the film, as well as Bond girl Olga Kurylenko.

The Water Diviner is due for release this year.
