Actress Tasma Walton has landed a regular gig on City Homicide.
She will play profiler Det-Sen-Sgt Claudia Leigh on the Seven show, which returns to screens next Sunday night, starting with a handful of episodes the network held over from 2008.
The role will recur over the season, something that attracted her to the part.
“After three years of (Blue) Heelers I decided that I didn’t want to do a regular gig again,” Walton told the Sunday Herald Sun.
She also had a role in Nine’s telemovie Little Oberon, but it didn’t proceed to series.
“The beauty of Claudia Leigh is that she comes and goes,” she said.
Also joining the team this year is actress Nadia Townsend.
In its new Sunday 8:30pm home, City Homicide will ironically end up competing with TEN’s Rove, Walton’s partner.
“I don’t really keep my eye on that kind of stuff,” she said.
