Actress Zoe Bertram steps onto the Neighbours set this week to begin a four week role playing a Polish cleaner, Lorraine Dowski, who works for Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis).
Bertram’s CV has a number of soaps and dramas, dating back to her role as Olivia Baxter on The Restless Years in 1977.
She has also appeared in Prisoner, A Country Practice, Blue Heelers, The Flying Doctors, Home & Away, Rush and City Homicide.
Playing the less than diplomatic cleaner, Bertram had to perfect a distinct Polish accent.
“She certainly isn’t like any of the characters I’ve played before and the accent was fun,” she said.
Her episodes will begin on air in late September.
