Phoebe dated Kyle after they grew up together in Melbourne, but was left brokenhearted when he suddenly moved away.

Phoebe is described as a "bright, attractive and boundlessly energetic young woman" who, though usually strong and focused, will become vulnerable when reunited with her former love.

The role is newcomer Giovinazzo's first acting job. The actress has a background in filmmaking and graduated after completing a five-year course in March.

In a Yahoo! video introducing her new character, she said: "It's been a lot of fun. I'm still figuring out what to do. Phoebe's been a really great person to start with.

"Just developing her character and rounding this woman has been wonderful and I've got a lot to play with because she's a little bit kooky."
