Newcomer Harley dives into the deep end

Harley Bonner’s Neighbours debut has found the young drama graduate thrust into the deep end….of the pool.

The eldest son of former Neighbours star Carla Bonner, Harley plays elite swimmer Joshua Willis, a role required the super fit 22-year-old to spend considerable time in the local Olympic pool filming.

Despite his famous mother spending many summers with him at the local pool, it took Harley a number of years before he was comfortable in deep water.

'I had a real thing about going underwater and getting my head wet. I didn’t stray to far from the side of the pool,' laughs Harley, who didn’t let his fear deter him from nailing his audition for the coveted role.

While Harley prefers exercising at the gym, he has embraced his character’s pursuit and has even mastered tumble turns.

'It’s funny. In my grade 6 year book, I said I wanted to be a tennis player or an actor; swimming was never on my radar.'

Harley debuts on air next week on Eleven and on 18 June for Channel 5 viewers.
