Home and Away's newest addition Bridie Carter has opened up about her role on the show as a love interest for John Palmer, calling it "one of the best" she's ever played.

She's set to play real estate agent Susie McCalister, a part which Bridie said came as a bit of a surprise with a phone call from the soap's producers coming out of the blue.

"And they said, Home and Away would like you to take a look at this role," she told Now To Love.

"I was shocked, but they had just returned to filming [following a COVID-19 filming hiatus], so I read the brief and spoke to the producers about this wonderful character. It was crazy and wonderful all at once!"

"It's one of the best roles I've ever played," Bridie added. "Susie is so intriguing, and confident about who she is.

"It was so much fun to play out with Shane [Withington], and I've had a ball playing out this story. It's special when that happens, particularly on a long-running show."
