Pop singer Samantha Jade will play the new bad girl in town on “Home and Away.”
Jade will be portraying the role of bad girl Isla in the drama series, but the pop princess assured that her character is nothing like herself, The West Australian reported.
“It is such a great role because it is nothing like myself and it is nothing like the Kylie [Minogue] role that I played,” she said.
Jade portrayed Minogue in the INXS telemovie last year.
“It is really different for me and really exciting. I can’t say too much but my character comes to the Bay with some bad intentions and she is a bit of a bad girl with a dark past, which is definitely acting for me,” the singe revealed.
Jade refused to disclose the specifics of her role but hinted that Isla will also fall in love with one of the favorite characters in “Home and Away.”
She added that viewers will also see her character in a bikini, the Daily Telegraph wrote.
The “Firestarter” singer is set to start filming next week, but according to the Daily Telegraph, her scenes will not premiere on the soap until early next year.
Jade won the 2012 season of “The X Factor Australia” and is set to release a new album in October.
