The Bachelorette Australia 2015 star Sam Frost is moving to Summer Bay. Australia’s Channel Seven had confirmed that the reality star would be joining the cast of Home and Away.
This year turned out to be fine for Frost. After some bad luck in the past few months, Frost landed a role in the longest-running soap after she auditioned for a couple of times.
“Sam’s audition blew us away. There is a very special something about actors, they are born with a gift of being able to bring to life words off a page. In joining the cast of Home and Away, Sam will be in great company and is about to enjoy a wonderful phase of her career,” a spokesperson told news.com.au.
The new project came just a few weeks after her 2DayFM Rove & Sam radio show with Rove McManus was canceled. Earlier this year, their prime time breakfast program on the radio station was moved into the evening slot to make way for Em Rusciano and Harley Breen. In December, Frost also split with The Bachelorette winner Sasha Mielczarek after 18 months together.
Sam Frost in Home and Away
This is the first acting role for the 28-year-old former finance account manager. Frost revealed that she went through the typical audition process as the other actors did. The reality star said she was first asked to audition while filming Hell’s Kitchen.
“I grew up watching Home And Away and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be on set and part of the cast … I auditioned against a whole bunch of people and that’s why I thought I wouldn’t get the role. After my second audition, when they finally said, ‘You got the job!’ I screamed. I was so excited,” Frost told The Daily Telegraph.
It is still unclear whether the first Australia’s The Bachelorette star will appear in Home and Away in a guest capacity or as Summer Bay’s regular. Frost will begin filming scenes in the next couple of weeks. Her first episode, however, will not air until next year.
Home and Away is responsible for launching the careers of lots of Australian stars. The list includes Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, The Great Gatsby actress Isla Fisher, and The Good Wife star Melissa George.
Sam Frost’s New Beau
Aside from a new gig, Frost also confirmed that she is dating 25-year-old Navy diver Dave Bashford. Apparently, the two have been friends for years. Their friendship turned into a romantic relationship after Frost split from Mielczarek.
Sam Frost and Bashford were first rumored to be dating when they were photographed together on Australia Day. However, she denied the rumor at the time. Recently, Frost told The Daily Telegraph, “I feel really blessed to have a friendship that has turned into something more. It’s nice to be able to share (my career success) with him.”
