Home and Away has cast McLeod's Daughters star Bridie Carter in a new role.
The actress will play real estate agent Susie McCalister, after previously portraying two small roles, Brooke Taylor and Toni Jarvis, in the soap over its 32-year history.
Announcing the news of her role on Instagram, Birdie wrote: "Getting blown away in beautiful Centennial Park in Sydney. Very happy to be join the team/family on one of Australia's longest running shows -@homeandaway.
"Very, very grateful in these strange times to be invited into the family fold. After filming today, I sought solace in nature at one of the city's most beautiful green spaces – not being on the farm, I need that! Very grateful for this wonderful public park.
"More pics and updates to come. Much love. Bridie xxxx."
Birdie also spoke to Sydney's Daily Telegraph about her new role, saying she wasn't expecting to be offered work at this time.
"I think it is miraculous that in these uncertain times when my industry is floundering that I got a phone call to say would I like to come to Summer Bay," she said.
'I was astounded and ecstatic at the same time. I am very fortunate and very grateful because I have a lot of friends who are sitting in a very precarious position."
Carter added: "I think it is now more than ever important for us as theatrical people to tell stories that are uplifting and entertaining in these very strange times."
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
