Home and Away has cast Packed to the Rafters star Angus McLaren as Robbo's old friend Lance Salisbury.

The actor, best known for playing Nathan Rafter in the TV series, will be making his debut on Aussie screens next week when Robbo is reunited with a blast from the past.

Robbo will get the answers he has been searching for when he comes face to face with his old friend Lance at an abandoned warehouse – but fans will have to wait and see how the rest of the story unravels.

Speaking about his character, Angus told TV Week: "He's a federal agent who was best friends with Robbo [Jake Ryan].

"Lance is intricately tied in with Robbo's circumstances, and the mystery slowly gets unpacked. He used to know Robbo well and wants him to see justice.

"[But] with the shady world [Robbo] lives in, he fears he may never see daylight again. The stakes are really high.

"It's great to work alongside Jake. He's an incredibly talented actor."

Angus's role on Home and Away also means that he is reunited with his former Packed to the Rafters co-star James Stewart – who now plays Summer Bay's Justin Morgan.

"This was a bonus. We hadn't seen each other in a long time. We actually film in the same corridors as Rafters – we were in the studios next door."

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5.
