As first revealed in November, a new Summer Bay twist will see Ruby decide that Romeo is the man for her - despite his romance with Indigo Walker (Samara Weaving).
In an interview with Adelaide Now, Breeds commented: "Ruby heats things up with Romeo this year. There's some fun there just for sure. She's just looking for true love and she thinks she may have found it in Romeo. There's the obvious drama, because Romeo is with someone."
Defending her alter ego's behaviour, she continued: "Ruby genuinely believes they are meant to be together. She's been told by a clairvoyant they are meant to be together. I guess when you're her age and you're told something like that, that it's destiny, she's now wondering if it's meant to be - is she supposed to wait, or is she supposed to be a catalyst for it?
"Ruby has a lot of insecurity because Ruby never really had a father figure. There's a lot of looking to belong and looking for love because she's had a displaced family life, and she feels like Romeo is her family.
"Romeo has some issues of his own. He is struggling with his relationship with Indi. The pair find themselves in a similar place of understanding."
In real life, Breeds has been in a relationship with Luke Mitchell - who plays Romeo - for nearly a year.
