Donna's real father cast in 'Neighbours'
Former All Saints star Brian Vriends has joined the cast of Neighbours for a guest stint.

The actor, who played Ben Markham in the medical drama from 1998 to 2003, is to appear in the role of Donna Freedman's father Nick in a forthcoming storyline.

Earlier this year, viewers saw Donna (Margot Robbie) left stunned as her manipulative mother Cassandra (Tottie Goldsmith) spoke about Nick for the first time. The Ramsay Street teenager had been brought up to believe that police officer Matt was her real father.

Announcing Vriends's casting, executive producer Susan Bower told the soap's official website: "The Freedman family have provided fantastic drama for us so far and we have lots in store for Brian, it's great to have him with us. This is just one of many, many great storylines we have coming up in 2010."

The star is expected to make his first appearance on Australian screens in April. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
