When drama strikes in Summer Bay, you can always rely on the local doctor to save the day, be it a shoulder to lean on or to dispense medical advice to grateful residents.
Newcomer Juliet Godwin, who will don a stethoscope and a surfboard in upcoming episodes of Home And Away, is right in the middle of the action.
The actress, who was born in Zimbabwe and reared in Perth, Washington, alludes to “trouble” awaiting Bree Cameron. But it’s still unclear what exactly it is.
The 28-year-old talks about what’s to come with TV WEEK.

Welcome to Summer Bay! How did you come to be involved in the show?
I’m grateful. After reading Bree’s character description and receiving the audition request from my agency, I was quite eager to record my audition. I had the good fortune to be selected for the job after being called back for a second round of auditions.
Tell us about your character.
Bree is a friendly, sympathetic doctor who enjoys a good laugh. She is gentle, thoughtful, yet as sharp as a whip. She was born and reared in Newcastle, New South Wales. Bree is dedicated to her work and thinks that by working hard and showing compassion, she can assist others who are in need.
What brings Bree to Summer Bay?
She needs a new beginning, so when a position opens up in the Yabbie Creek emergency room, she seizes the opportunity. Summer Bay seemed to be the ideal laid-back community, similar to Newcastle, where she may continue to assist those in need and surf whenever she pleases. She first fits in well at the Bay since she enjoys her new home, the great surf, and the kind inhabitants. But as the weeks pass, we find that Bree’s narrative has a bit more to it.
Does she know anyone in town?
No, but she’s excited to become a part of the community and slow down.
Bree’s both a doctor and a surfer chick – do you enjoy that aspect of her?
I love that aspect of her! I’ve actually been getting into surfing myself, as it’s a big hobby of my partner. So it’s been great to get in the water as Bree.
