On “Neighbours,” Stause will portray Yasmine “Yas” Shields, who is described in a press release as “a glamorous and successful businesswoman in pursuit of an exciting new opportunity.”

“I am honored and excited to join such a beloved and iconic show,” Stause said in a statement. “Coming from the world of soaps in the U.S., 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!”

The iconic Australian daily soap, which has been airing since 1985, was picked up by Amazon Freevee after its cancellation and series finale in 2022. The show resumed in September 2023 and recently earned two Daytime Emmy nominations, including for outstanding drama series, marking its first awards nods in the U.S.

“We are thrilled to welcome Chrishell to the cast of ‘Neighbours,'” executive producer Jason Herbison 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.”

Beyond “Selling Sunset,” Stause is also an advocate for LGBTQ rights and married her partner, the Australian musician G-Flip, in 2022.
