Neighbours casts new ally for Tash

Actor and musician Sebastian Gregory, who was applauded for his portrayal of a solitary teenager in the 2009 feature movie Beautiful with Asher Keddie, is currently filming a guest role in Neighbours.

Sebastian, 22, who divides his time between Los Angeles and his hometown of Melbourne, plays Ed Lee, a mathematics genius who becomes an unlikely ally of wild child Tash Williams (Valentina Novakovic).

If Sebastian looks familiar to fans of the longtime soap, he had a fleeting part as a 16-year-old as the boyfriend of former Neighbours starlet, Caitlin Stacey.

'It was a very short romance, about three episodes,' jokes Sebastian.  In his latest role, which is currently scheduled for four months, he is set to have more of a memorable impact on Ramsay Street as his character introduces Tash to some of his unusual pastimes. Say no more.

'He is very different but also likable; I’m really enjoying playing him,' adds Sebastian.
