Chrishell Stause (“All My Children,” “Days of our Lives”) is joining the cast of Amazon Freevee’s “Neighbours” as a series guest star, it was announced on Wednesday. 

The “Selling Sunset” star will begin taping in July at the Australian soap’s studio. She will play a newly created character named Yasmine “Yas” Shields, a glamorous and successful businesswoman who is in pursuit of an exciting new opportunity. 

“I am honored and excited to join such a beloved and iconic show!” said Stause. “Coming from the world of soaps in the U.S., 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!”

“We are thrilled to welcome Chrishell to the cast of ‘Neighbours,’” said executive producer Jason Herbison. “We created a character especially for her and we can’t wait for her to bring the storyline alive. Expect intrigue and surprises – and many implications for the residents of Ramsay Street.”

In addition to a career in soaps, Stause has appeared in several made-for-TV movies, including the Netflix thriller “Staged Killer,” and the Lifetime movies “A Rose for Her Grave: The Randy Roth Story” and “You’re Not Supposed to be Here,” which was nominated for a GLAAD Award this year.

Stause released her debut memoir, “Under Construction: Because Living My Best Life Took a Little Work,” in February 2022. That same year, she received the Best Reality Star award at the MTV Movie & TV Awards for her work on “Selling Sunset.” The show also took home Best Docu-Reality Show. Stause has also received a People’s Choice Award nomination for Favorite Reality Star, and in 2023, Variety recognized Stause as one of the 40 Most Powerful Women in Reality TV, and Us Weekly named her one of the Top 10 Reality Stars of the Year.
