Walter Mitchell



Actor Chris Haywood has been cast in the role of Walter. He will be a familiar face for Australian TV fans as he has previously starred in All Saints, Home and Away, Water Rats, McLeod's Daughters and Stingers among other shows.

Haywood's film credits include Beneath Hill 60, False Witness and Jindabyne.

Walter's first scenes introduce him as a "mysterious visitor" to Erinsborough who watches Sonya from afar.

When he finally tells Sonya who he is, Walter seems reluctant to disclose too much information about his past. However, as the Rebecchis get used to having Walter around, one of the other local residents will be smitten with him.

Neighbours airs Walter's entrance on Monday (June 17) in Australia and on July 15 in the UK.
