Angelic Saskia Burmeister is bringing a bad girl to Summer Bay. She's joining the cast of Home and Away as River Girl Tegan, the manipulative surfer chick who "mysteriously comes into the bay to ruffle some feathers". When offered the role, she jumped at it. "Home and Away is Australian TV history," she says. "To have my piece of it is so thrilling."

Often cast as the girl next door, Burmeister relishs the naughty role. "I love her. I find myself gasping at what she is doing." Bleaching her usually brown locks to blonde for her character has also proved shocking. "Nobody is recognising me. When I came home, my husband said, 'I have a new wife.'"

Married to actor Jamie Croft, Burmeister already feels at home on set, especially considering Josh Quong Tart (who plays Miles) was best man at her wedding.

It can't be too rough, either, working alongside spunky River Boy Dan Ewing. So does her husband get jealous? "He laughs! I'm very lucky I have an actor as a hubby; he gets it." But at the same time, she confesses to having a bit of a perve.
