Spoiler: Neighbours’ gay youth Chris Pappas (James Mason) will finally get a romantic interest when actor Bobby Morley joins the TEN soap.
The former Home and Away and The Strip actor will play male nurse Aidan Foster who becomes a couple with Pappas.
The role is currently set for a six month stint, but could be extended.
“To be true to the Chris character, now he is a regular in storylines, we knew at some stage he needed to meet someone,” Neighbours executive producer Susan Bower told the Sunday Herald Sun.
“How it unfolds, all will be revealed, however I think viewers will find the story compelling.”
Given romantic storylines go hand-in-hand with Erinsborough youth, it’s certainly been a long time coming for Mason’s character, who came out last August.
