Home and Away star Sasha Bezmel, played by 19-year-old Demi Harman, has said that her character will find herself in danger thanks to her new friend Rosie Prichard (Teri Haddy). Warning: Spoiler Alert!

Summer Bay newcomer, Rosie, is said to become overly attached and obsessive with Sasha as the pair get to know each other.

In an upcoming episode of the hit soap, Rosie coaxes Sasha into an extremely dangerous situation at the beach, which almost causes her to drown.

Speaking to TV Week, Demi said: "Rosie becomes a bit obsessive about Sasha's company and wants to make sure their friendship is genuine."

She continued: "There's huge danger. The beach is unpatrolled and Sasha doesn't swim - she hates the water - so she's not very confident and doesn't want Rosie to go in. It's her worst nightmare."

Demi further stated that she felt genuine fear when filming the water scene, adding: "When we were shooting, we got stuck in a rip for real. It was pretty scary. I was supposed to be saving Teri and I ended up getting dragged out further than her.

"There were a couple of moments where I was like, 'Oh no, I'm stuck and can't move!' But we had everyone watching us and lifesavers there. I felt safe, but at the same time, it was scary."
