Ryan Johnson has been rehired by Home and Away for a fresh upcoming role.
Johnson, who recently starred in the Australian medical drama Doctor Doctor, has previously been on the show as Paolo Rosetta in a brief appearance.
He’ll be back as Peter King, and he’ll be a part of Mackenzie Booth’s plot as she tries to salvage her restaurant from bankruptcy.
As Mac’s restaurant Salt’s financial plight worsens, she resorts to conducting illegal gambling nights in order to rescue her business.
Mac is seen taking greater chances by organizing the gambling nights in a trailer (above) for upcoming episodes airing in Australia, claiming others the events are her only way out.
While more information about Johnson’s position has yet to be released, it seems likely that he will be involved in the Salt casino nights, given he is seen in the teaser ordering Mackenzie to “name her price.”
Emily Weir, who plays Mac on the drama, recently spoke out about her character’s risky choices, stating that they “certainly make her feel like she is nearing rock bottom again.”
Weir went on to say about her plan to arrange the illicit gambling nights: “Mackenzie is initially unconcerned about it. However, as the concept develops and Mackenzie’s stress from the massive debt mounts, she views it as a viable option.”
