TV actor Samuel Johnson will plead guilty to an assault charge stemming from a fight last month, his solicitor has told a Sydney court.

Johnson was not in Downing Centre Local Court this morning.

His solicitor Greg Goold said the actor was in Melbourne seeking psychological and psychiatric treatment.

"He's in the process of having his first psychological and psychiatric assessment this week," Mr Goold said.

Outside court, Mr Goold told reporters the treatment was in relation to ongoing alcohol abuse and the suicide of his former partner Lainie Woodlands last year.

"What I've done today is indicate there will be (a guilty plea) entered ... (but) the facts haven't been decided yet, because what the victim has said in the newspaper doesn't necessarily conform with what he has told police," Mr Goold said.

The incident occurred on September 1 on the 17th level of Sydney's Star City Casino.

Johnson, who starred in the television series The Secret Life Of Us, was charged later that month with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

The matter was adjourned to November 1.
