Harley Bonner, a former Neighbours star, has been cast as the new doctor in Summer Bay on Home and Away.
Harley will play Dr. Logan Bennett, a trauma surgeon who arrives for a life-saving operation and stays to see his patient through the whole trip.
The actor is best known for his appearance on Neighbours as Josh Willis. Carla Bonner, who played Stephanie Scully for 19 years, is his girlfriend.
“It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of working on a programme that’s such a staple of Australian television,” Harley said of his new job.
“I’m pleased to report that I was able to pick it up much faster than anticipated.” I enjoy working on shows like Home and Away because I enjoy my character and can’t wait for Australia to meet him.”
Harley characterised his character as “capable, compassionate, intelligent, and friendly,” adding that he is “a bit of a nomad.”
“He’s seen and done a lot in his life, some of which he tries his hardest to avoid getting into,” he said. I’m curious to see what we’ll learn as time passes.
“This is a whole new playing field for Logan.” Summer Bay may be the change of pace and scenery he’s been waiting for, but fate could have other plans.”
