While her little sister Jessica made her big break on Channel 7’s Packed to the Rafters, Penny McNamee has just scored her dream role on another big show on the same network – Home and Away.
‘I’ve been wanting a role on Home and Away since I started acting,’ Penny told The Daily Telegraph.
Penny, 32, will play a doctor named Tori on the series, who arrives to Summer Bay looking for a fresh start – but her character also has a dark side.
This isn’t her first big role – her resume is quite impressive.
She previously performed on stage in Wicked alongside Australian Idol Anthony Callea.
She’s also had guest spots on US shows like Blue Bloods and Elementary, and even appeared in Steven Spielberg’s HBO miniseries The Pacific.
