Home and Away’s Bonnie Sveen is set to join the cast of The Secret Daughter, a new 'feel-good' drama coming soon to Seven.

Described as a drama full of “heart, humour and romance,” The Secret Daughter stars Jessica Mauboy as Billie, a part-time country pub singer whose chance meeting with a wealthy city hotelier triggers a series of events that will change her life forever.

“I’m looking forward to bringing this colourful character and story to life,” said the ARIA and AACTA winning singer, songwriter and actress.

2014 TV Week Logie Award winner Bonnie will appear as Billie’s best friend, Layla. “I’m really happy to be joining the cast and working alongside such talented people like Jessica Mauboy,” Bonnie said.

“It’s an exciting time for me and I’m thrilled to be working on another production for Seven.”

Filming for The Secret Daughter begins later this month. Further cast announcements will be made in coming weeks. In the meantime, Bonnie will continue to be seen as Ricky on Home and Away at 7pm weeknights.
