The former Neighbours actor, recently seen in Designated Survivor, will play Jake Amato, the hot building manager of the TJ Maxx, a cute blue collar guy who has a flirty relationship with Laura (Young).

He will also be seen in season 2 of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

  1. It was such a bad time for Neighbours, coincidently after the period of Izzy leaving (who has just returned). 2007 was so convoluted, too many cast changes, new theme, new producers, new direction/feel all in an attempt to boost declining ratings to a massive Home and Away. It worked for a while, ratings were strong for Ten later in 2007/2008/2008 before plunging to levels seen now on Home and Away in 2010 (final year of main channel).

    In modern era, early-mid 2000s were the most popular, plus periods in the 1990s. Scullys, Hoylands, Delta Goodram, Kennedys, Toadie
