Packed with surprises
PACKED to the Rafters regular Zoe Ventoura has revealed she never thought she’d be cast in the hit drama. ‘‘I remember thinking, ‘They are not going to cast me’ because originally she (Melissa) was a British backpacker,’’ Ventoura says. ‘‘But once in the (audition) room the vibe was right and it all changed. It’s been lots of fun.’’ Introduced to the Rafter family during season one, Ventoura says she’s looking forward to some juicy storylines.
