Summer Bay is set to gain a new resident, but while he’s a fresh face to the locals, fans might recognise the actor from another TV soap.

Set to play the role of Dr. Logan Bennett on Home and Away, Harley Bonner comes as TV royalty, where he’s best known for his role as Josh Willis on Neighbours.

Harley was also a guest star in House Husbands, and featured in a documentary series called Creative Kids.

He is also the son of Carla Bonner, who played Stephanie Scully, another iconic character in the soap opera Neighbours.

Commenting on his upcoming arrival to the Bay, Harley said: “It’s been a while since I’ve had the privilege of working on a program that’s such a hallmark of Australian television.

“I’m happy to say I picked it back up a lot faster than expected. I really love working on shows like Home and Away, I love my character and I can’t wait for Australia to meet him,” he said.

He is set to join the cast as a fully-qualified trauma surgeon, who is brought in following a life-saving intervention, and it’s his urge to see his patient’s journey from start to finish that keeps him around.

The 29-year-old said viewers can expect his new character to be “a bit of a nomad”, as well as being “capable, compassionate, intelligent and fun”.

“He’s seen and done a lot in his life, some of which he tries his best to avoid getting into. I’m intrigued to find out what we’ll discover as time goes on,” Harley added.

With the sandy shores and endless stream of drama-filled action, Summer Bay is what one might call a whole new playing field for the young doctor.

Although, it may just prove to be the change of pace and scenery he’s been looking for. Then again, fate has a funny way of shaking things up.

Home and Away fans can expect Harley to make his way to Summer Bay very soon.
