"We are thrilled to welcome Chrishell to the cast of Neighbours," the producer said. "We created a character especially for her and we can’t wait for her to bring the storyline alive. Expect intrigue and surprises – and many implications for the residents of Ramsay Street.”

Chrishell also said: "I am honored and excited to join such a beloved and iconic show! Coming from the world of soaps in the US, it’s back to my first love in the entertainment industry. They pitched me an idea for a character, and I was immediately excited to figure out a way to make it happen. Ramsay Street, here I come."

As mentioned, Chrishell got her start acting in soaps before she found a whole new level of fame as one of the real estate agents in Selling Sunset.

Chrishell was a mainstay of the US soap world in the early 2000s, playing Amanda Dillon in All My Children and later earning a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for portraying Jordan Ridgeway in Days of Our Lives.
