Neighbours’ When the programme returns in 2022, Freya Van Dyke will play Amy Greenwood’s daughter Zara Selwyn.
The first peek at next year’s episodes reveals that adolescent Zara will be visiting Amy (Jacinta Stapleton) in Erinsborough, thus signalling the end of Amy’s polyamorous relationship with Levi Canning and Ned Willis.
Freya uploaded a photo of herself as Zara on Instagram, expressing her joy at becoming a part of the Ramsay Street serial.
“I’m ecstatic to announce that I’ve joined the cast of @neighbours as Zara Selwyn!” she posted.
While nothing is known about why Zara chooses to come to Erinsborough or what her early storylines will be, Amy appears to be adamant in the 2022 teaser that her daughter comes first.
She says, “Right now, it just needs to be Zara and me.”
In early 2022, Zara isn’t the only newcomer; “ultimate mystery girl” Freya Wozniak (played by new series regular Phoebe Roberts) is also due to make her debut.
Amanda Holden will also appear as Harriet, Harlow’s aunt and the sister of the late Prue Wallace, in a unique plot set in London.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor was also spotted filming for the UK plot of Harlow.
The show will premiere in the UK and Australia on January 3 – but with 10 Peach sticking to its four-episode weekly schedule, it won’t be long before the UK catches up to Australia.
