Meyne Wyatt is a prolific theatre actor who has also been featured in The Sapphires and Redfern Now. He has scored a role on Neighbours in a role which is not culturally or ethnically specific.
A spokesman for Channel Ten said the decision to cast an indigenous actor was unintentional. “While cultural diversity is definitely important, in cases where we don’t need a specific ethnic background, our brief to agents is to put forward their best people and that was the case for this character,” says Neighbours series producer Jason Herbison. “Meyne is an exceptional young award-winning actor and very much on the radar of casting directors. We feel very privileged to have him join our regular cast. From his first audition, we knew we had found the best actor for the role.”
