Jessica Grace Smith has joined the “Home and Away” cast as the character Denny.
She will begin on the U.K. soap sometime this spring.
Smith told Digital SpyUK that “Denny’s pretty straight up and she’s really honest. She’s ‘what you see is what you get’. She’s definitely not your typical girl – she works in the bait shop with Alf!”
Smith got the role just a week before she was going to move to Los Angeles; she called the quick change in plans “crazy,” but said that she’s “so stoked to be a part of the show and have full time work.”
“It’s an actor’s dream,” she added.
