Chrishell, who has previously had roles on All My Children, The Young and the Restless and Days of Our Lives, will arrive in Australia in July to begin filming.

She’s also appeared in the Netflix thriller, Staged Killer, and most recently the Lifetime movie, You’re Not Supposed to be Here, which received a nomination for a 2004 GLAAD Award.

In 2022, Chrishell released her debut memoir, Under Construction: Because Living My Best Life Took a Little Work. And the same year, she married her partner, Aussie superstar G Flip who, as you can imagine, is pretty thrilled to have Chrishell joining the Neighbours cast:

“HELLS YES BABY!” G Flip posted on Instagram, celebrating the news.

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

Neighbours is available on Amazoon Freevee in the UK and U.S. and streams on Prime Video elsewhere.
