Netflix offers counselling to stars of Heartbreak High ‘to help them deal with the pressures of fame’ after the show became an international success

Netflix has offered counselling sessions to the stars of the Heartbreak High reboot to help them cope with the pressures of overnight fame.

The Australian teen drama, based on the ’90s soap opera of the same name, became an international hit when its first season was released last year.

Josh Heuston, who plays Dusty Reid, said on Friday that mental health professionals were made available to the cast if they needed help navigating stardom.

‘[It was important] especially considering it’s a cast of young adults who were suddenly thrown into the spotlight,’ he told The Daily Telegraph.

Josh added he was pleasantly surprised fans of the show were respectful when it came to differentiating between his personal and professional lives.

‘Anything personal I keep offline… it’s probably best to keep something to yourself considering the rest of [my] life is on show,’ he said.

Heartbreak High became one of Netflix’s most-watched shows within days of its launch last September. 

Speaking of the impact the show had on his career, Josh said it ‘opened doors for all of us and definitely changed the caliber of roles you can go for’.

‘I get to do something I haven’t stopped doing since I was a kid, which is dressing up and sword fighting, but now people don’t think I’m crazy,’ he added. 

Josh, who dating model and DJ Carla Martinez, is expected to return for the second season of Heartbreak High, which starts filming later this month.

He has recently been flying between Sydney and Budapest after being cast in the upcoming TV series Dune: The Sisterhood.

The original Heartbreak High and its reboot are available to stream on Netflix
