Home and Away spoilers: Lynne McGranger teases ‘exciting’ new character

    Lynne McGranger of Home and Away recently hinted the arrival of a “exciting new character” in Summer Bay. The actress, who has been Irene Roberts since 1991, posted a cute photo of herself and Cash Newman, played by Nicholas Cartwright, on Instagram.

    In the selfie, the couple was grinning from ear to ear, with a kissing emoji covering the enigmatic new actor. Since Cash is wearing his police uniform, it’s conceivable that the new individual is connected to a crime.

    Cash and a fascinating new persona are giving off Saturday vibes. Coming soon,” Lynne wrote as her caption.

    Fans quickly speculated on the identity of the new character in the comments, with some appealing with the show’s creators not to separate Cash from his on-screen lover Eden Fowler, who is portrayed by Stephanie Panozzo.

    One admirer said, “Can’t wait to see who the new character is.”

    Another person said, “Exciting new character, I love the sound of that, hope it’s Flick & Cash’s foster dad Gary.”

    A third added, “I’d love to see Damian and Fin make an appearance,” alluding to Damian Roberts and Finlay ‘Fin’ Roberts, who appeared on the serial in the 1990s.

    Harper comes to Summer Bay

    There’s a high chance that this mystery character could be Harper, played by Melbourne-based actress Jessica Redmayne. She’s no stranger to the screen, previously appearing in 800 WordsNeighbours and Five Bedrooms alongside former Home and Away star Stephen Peacocke.

    In March, a call sheet and script pages were accidentally revealed by Ada Nicodemou (Leah Patterson) on social media. While it’s not clear if the new characters would be regulars or guest stars, the new information is still intriguing.

    On Ada’s rehearsal call sheet, Jessica’s character Harper was in a scene with both Cash and Irene. The star was also spotted filming out at Palm Beach in March, looking cosy with Nicholas’ character Cash.

    We may see Harper around August since the show normally shoots about five months in advance. Fans are concerned about what Harper’s plot will include even though it’s unclear whether she will be the police officer’s new love interest or just a buddy.

    One fan asked on social media, “Is she going to be a love interest for Cash, please tell me no!”

    I love Cash and Eden together, so please don’t tell me they split up, said another.

    “On spoiler sites, it was suggested that she might have been Lily Smith, Gypsy’s daughter. However, I don’t believe she is connected to Irene,” a third person added.
