Romance could be on the cards for Home and Away's Ryder Jackson, as a new love interest has been cast.

Sam Barrett – who previously played Daisy in Australian series The Heights – is joining the Summer Bay soap, and paparazzi pictures show her unknown character and Ryder (Lukas Radovich) getting close on the beach (via Daily Mail).

In the photos, the pair are seen playing with each other on the beach and in the water, as well as sharing an embrace.

Not much else is known about Barrett's character or their storyline.

Ryder's last notable love interest was backpacker Jade Lennox, played by Mia Morrissey, but that didn't go well. After confronting her over money that she stole, Ryder was framed by Jade over a sex tape that she uploaded.

His storylines this year have also included meeting and then saying goodbye to his long-lost father Evan Slater.
