Neighbours dialled up the nostalgia with the epic 35th anniversary again in March that noticed a slew of former Ramsay Street residents returning, and certainly one of them is ready to make a everlasting comeback as an everyday member of the solid.
Producer Jason Herbison revealed the plans some time again, and has solely teased it additional for RadioTimes.com. “This person is a Neighbours legend and their return is a huge thrill for us,” says the present runner, basking within the glory of the Australian drama sweeping the board on the RadioTimes.com Soap Awards.
“They were back for the 35th and also participated in our 30th anniversary documentary five years ago. I remember seeing them in the car park and my heart skipped a beat. To have them back in the regular cast is a dream come true.”
So who might or not it’s? Here are our picks…
Our cash is on Plain Jane Superbrain. She was a bridesmaid for Scott and Charlene again within the 1980s, certainly it doesn’t get any extra iconic than that? Annie Jones has been backwards and forwards as a recurring visitor since 2018 and tied the knot within the 35th anniversary week with outdated flame Des Clarke. The actress has not dominated out one other return, and we really feel her latest run of non permanent reappearances have paved the way in which for her full-time tenure.
Getting Des again for the anniversary was an exquisite nod to the present’s first ever episode, by which he appeared, and he reconnected with outdated mate Paul Robinson and at last get hitched to Jane. However, Herbison says it’s just one returnee for now, so if it’s both Des or Jane does that imply their marriage has already hit the rocks?
Technically one other unique character, although performed by a special actress initially, Paul’s child sister is now the high-flying boss of the Lassiters model and pops again to Erinsborough once in a while. As with Des and Jane, Luce is a newly-wed (she married ex-boyfriend Mark Gottlieb) so if she returns alone it means the pair’s joyful ever after is already scuppered. Herbison has additionally hinted the returnee may have one other new character related to them once they rock up – might that be Lucy’s daughter Annie?
Fans went nuts to see the rebellious teen all grown up as a senior cop, and to lastly tie the knot with schoolgirl crush Lana Crawford after the women shared the primary lesbian kiss again in 2004. Stephanie McIntosh has real-life household connections on the present, as Jemma Donovan (Harlow Robinson) is her niece – fellow Neighbours legend Jason Donovan (Scott Robinson) is Steph’s brother and Jemma’s dad. The drawback as soon as once more is bringing again anybody who acquired hitched on the Lassiters wedding ceremony expo means the romance has already died…
Alternatively, Bridget Neval may very well be tempted again for a everlasting return as free-spirited Lana. Despite her being concerned in one of many present’s most well-known, groundbreaking moments, Lana was not truly round for that lengthy but made an enormous impression. It can be attention-grabbing to discover the character extra absolutely exterior of her relationship with Sky. Maybe the pair have determined to do the long-distance factor?
It was surprisingly emotional to see reformed dangerous boy Dylan again in Erinsborough, particularly as he reconnected with surrogate father determine Paul and watched his ex Sky stroll up the aisle with real love Lana. Dylan is a part of the beloved Rebecchi clan so he might stick with cousins Toadie and Shane, and now he’s single there’s a lot of potential to choose up on how Dyl’s life has all of a sudden modified. Maybe he’d carry his and Sky’s youngsters with him? They’d be of their teenagers now.
