Jeremy Lindsay Taylor is joing the cast of Offspring.
Viewers will meet his character Dan when Billie (Kat Stewart) returns to the dating game following her split from husband Mick (Eddie Perfect).
A cautious Billie develops a foolproof plan to ensure no man she meets will fall in love with her: coming on way too strong in a needy, bordering on obsessive, way. It is genius, that is, until Kerry (Ash Ricardo) sets up Billie with the mysterious Dan.
Jeremy said: “From the moment Kat Stewart blasted onto our screens as Roberta Williams in Underbelly, I knew we were witnessing a true artist at work. Fearless and spontaneous, she masters both comedy and drama, a near impossible feat.
“I feel blessed to finally have the chance to work with Kat on a show that has produced some of the bravest, hilarious and unique television this country has ever seen. Seven seasons and still going strong – incredible!”
Network Ten Head of Drama, Rick Maier, said: “Jeremy has to be top of our list of go-to actors. We loved him in Bikie Wars: Brothers In Arms and in Puberty Blues – and he’s brilliant in this new role in Offspring.
“We couldn’t be happier to have JLT on board and especially to see him working his charm in his scenes with Kat Stewart. It’s a masterclass.”
Endemol Shine Banks Producer, Imogen Banks, said: “This is one of those rare on-screen partnerships that becomes even greater than the sum of its magnificent parts. Jeremy Lindsay Taylor can do anything.”
Since graduating from the University of Newcastle, Jeremy has garnered numerous television credits including Hyde & Seek, Love Child, Puberty Blues, Bikie Wars: Brothers In Arms, Gallipoli, Home and Away, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Underbelly: Razor.
Jeremy will debut in Offspring on Wednesday, 26 July at 8.30pm, only on Ten
