Reality television icon Chrishell Stause is heading to Ramsay street, with a guest role in Aussie soap Neighbours.

Stause, who found fame on the reality series Selling Sunset is set to play Yasmine ‘Yas’ Shields, a glamorous and successful business woman looking for new opportunities in Erinsborough.

“We are thrilled to welcome Chrishell to the cast of Neighbours. We created a character especially for her and we can’t wait for her to bring the storyline alive,” Neighbours Executive Producer, Jason Herbison said. 

“Expect intrigue and surprises — and many implications for the residents of Ramsay Street.”

While it might seem unusual for an American star to take a role in the long-running Australian show, Stause is no stranger to the country, having married Aussie rapper G-Flip back in May, 2023. While the couple still call Los Angeles home, since tying the knot, they frequently visit Australian shores, including G-Flip’s hometown of Melbourne.

It’s also not the first time Stause has flexed her acting chops in a soap opera, having already had parts in All My Children, The Young and the Restless, and Days of Our Lives. She was even nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Guest Performance in a Drama Series.

“I am honoured and excited to join such a beloved and iconic show,” Stause said in a statement about the news.

“Coming from the world of soaps in the US, it’s back to my first love in the entertainment industry. They pitched me an idea for a character, and I was immediately excited to figure out a way to make it happen. Ramsay Street here I come!”

Stausse is the second big-name international star to have a stint on Ramsay Street in recent years, after Neighbours was axed after a 37-year run in July 2022, before being revived by Amazon Freevee and Prime Video in early 2023. The O.C. alum Mischa Barton made an appearance on Neighbours in late 2023 for 32 episodes, as part of a bid to attract more viewers in the US and UK.

Stause will head Down Under in July to begin filming. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
