Rising star Meyne Wyatt has been cast in a regular role on Neighbours.

Wyatt’s character Nate Kinski already has a connection with two of Ramsay Street’s most revered residents, Susan and Karl Kennedy. 

Susan was previously married to Nates’ uncle. Nate arrives in Erinsborough to bring closure to a part of his life which he keeps a secret from his hosts initially.

At this year’s TV Week Logie Awards, one of Australian television’s highest honours, 24-year-old Wyatt was nominated for the prestigious Graham Kennedy Award for Most Outstanding Newcomer for his role in the award winning series Redfern Now.
