Neighbours legend Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Maloney) is to be joined by his cousin Georgia later this year on the C5 soap, it has been revealed.
Lawyer Toadie whose most recent storyline has seen his partner Sonya Mitchell (Eve Morey) fall pregnant with their first child together will be joined by cousin Georgia Brookes, played by Saskia Hampele later this year.
Georgia's first appearance will be aired on Australian screens in October with UK viewers seeing her make her Ramsay Street debut the following month. Hampele revealed that she was in Kakadu in the Northern Territory with TV presenter boyfriend Kayne Tremillis when her agent called notifying her about the role.
With a strict deadline to submit her audition video, she was forced to film the clip whilst on her trip. She quipped: ''It was really funny, the backdrop of the audition is outback Australia - a far cry from Ramsay Street."
Hampele has had previous supporting roles in various films and television shows such as City Homicide.
