Rayne Royce (Jemma Donovan) has made her presence felt since she first arrived in Hollyoaks in January.
The influencer rocked up on a motorbike back in January and immediately made quite the impression on Prince and Hunter McQueen (Malique Thompson-Dwyer and Theo Graham) – although Romeo Nightingale (Owen Warner) has also been smitten with the newcomer.
Not going to lie, we love Rayne and her iconic ways already.
However, it has become increasingly apparent that Rayne is hiding a dark secret, which seems to revolve around her ex-boyfriend Brent – and with Jemma Donovan having hinted at twists in her storyline it seems there is excitement to come.
Rayne isn’t the first soap character Jemma Donovan has played – so where else have we seen her before?
And who is the actress’ famous dad?
Where have you seen Jemma Donovan before?
Jemma, 23, appeared as an 11-year-old in the BBC One film Mr Stink – based on the David Walliams novel.
She also appeared in the 10-part Netflix series Spotless back in 2015.
However, she found soap fame in 2019 after joining the cast of Neighbours as Harlow Robinson, the granddaughter of Paul Robinson.
She said at the time: ‘I was so happy and very honoured to be a part of a series which has been enjoyed by generations.
‘The timing was also perfect because since my previous role on Spotless in 2015, I stopped going to auditions and acting because I wanted to finish my schooling, get my A levels and see what I wanted to do after that so it’s great how everything has fallen into place.’
Jemma remained in the soap until July 2022.
Whose daughter is Jemma Donovan?
Soap runs in Jemma’s family, as she is the daughter of former Neighbours legend Jason Donovan – who played Scott Robinson in the soap.
She is the oldest of Jason’s three children – who also include son Zac and daughter Molly with the actor’s wife Angela Malloch
Jason previously revealed his reaction when finding out she had landed a job on Neighbours, telling Australian publication Now To Love: I remember getting the phone call from my agent saying, “I’ve got some news,” and I cried.
‘It just made me so happy that she has an opportunity, that there is a foundation and a good reason for it.‘
Hollyoaks airs weeknights on E4 at 7pm with the episode repeated the next day on Channel 4 at 6.30pm.
