She was known for playing McLeod’s Daughters with Tess Silverman McLeod.
But after being given a regular role on Home and Away, Bridie Carter will soon be making a name for herself in another TV drama.
The 50-year-old announced she will join the cast as real estate agent Susie McAllister in an interview with New Concept.
‘[The role I was offered was] in the COVID height, and I locked in my farm, my children at home school [Tobias, 10, and Otis, 15, Wilson], thinking my business is gone,’ she said.
‘And unexpectedly I received this call from my agent,’ Home and Away gave you Susie McAllister this marvellous job!,’ I was doing voice over jobs from my walk-in closet.
And Bridie had also had a head start on the task, having starred twice before as Susie on the soap opera.
‘There’s something very cool about it when someone gives you a part and they have you directly in mind for that character,’ she told the publication.
Bridie said the cast and crew fulfilled her expectations as a ‘working mum’ in a separate interview with Now To Love.
‘They were so proud of me, and of becoming a single mother as well. I was able to shoot and then return home to my [Byron Bay] children,’ she said.
And it seems like passion will be on her character’s cards, with Susie capturing the attention of the newly single John Palmer, who’s playing Shane Withington.
‘Susie is so interesting and assured that she is who she is. Playing with Shane was so much fun, and I had a blast playing out this novel,’ Bridie told Now To Love.
‘It is unique, particularly on a long-running show, when that happens.’
