Zoe Cramond and Camille Keenan

Meet the new Rafter girls

AFTER a spate of exits, the cast of Packed To The Rafters is about to welcome some newcomers.

New Zealanders Camille Keenan and Zoe Cramond have joined the cast as regulars.

Cramond will play the role of Emma Mackey, a character who will be a potential love interest for Ben Rafter, played by Hugh Sheridan.

Keenan — who is best known for her roles in Satisfaction and Rush — will play Bree Jennings, sister of Coby Jennings, who is played by Ryan Corr.

The new blood in the cast comes after stars Jessica Marais, Jess McNamee and Zoe Ventoura left the top-rating show.

Keenan said everyone on the cast had been very welcoming.

"Rebecca Gibney welcomed me in lingerie, as a tribute to my Satisfaction days, which was nice," she said.

Cramond has been a regular on top-rating shows in New Zealand including Shortland Street, Outrageous Fortune and Go Girls.

Packed To The Rafters is as popular in New Zealand as it is in Australia.
