Exciting news for Australian pop singer Samantha Jade, who has joined the cast of Home and Away!
After her role as Kylie Minogue in the INXS telemovie last year, she has now scored herself a permanent spot on the very popular Channel 7 show.
‘It is really exciting. I’ve wanted to do more acting and I wanted to do something unexpected and different and this is very very different to Kylie (Minogue),’ she told The Daily Mail.
Although she isn’t allowed to say much about the character she will be playing, her name will be Isla and it looks like she won’t be making friends anytime soon.
‘I can’t say too much but I can say she comes to the Bay with bad intentions. She has a bit of a past and she falls for one of the favourite boys on the show,’ she said.
She also revealed that she wasn’t too nervous about learning lines, but the bikini scenes were a little intimidating.
‘It is always a bit nerve-wracking for a girl (being filmed in swimwear) but if they shoot it right, I’d like them to make me look a bit taller,’ she said.
Samantha’s scenes will air early next year.
