Neighbours

Connor to return to Ramsay Street

It may be six years since Patrick Harvey was breaking hearts on Neighbours, but the actor has had no problem slipping back into the groove of Ramsay Street.

It may be six years since Patrick Harvey was breaking hearts on Neighbours, but the charismatic Irish-Australian actor has had no problem slipping back into the groove of Ramsay Street.

Patrick, who was one of the show’s biggest stars last decade, this week returned to his old stomping ground to reprise his role as  lovable larrikin Connor O’Neill, which in 2003 won him a Logie Award for Best New Talent.

During his previous stint on the soap, many of Patrick’s scenes were shared with Ryan Moloney. The double act were housemates at Number 32, then a true bachelor pad fondly known as the House of Trouser. Connor was also famed for a rather unique sense of style.

'As soon as the wardrobe department pulled out the boxers and Hawaiian shirt, I was back in character,' jokes Patrick.  'However, it wasn’t until Ryan dropped his dacks in a scene that I knew I was home.'

Patrick's four-week guest role can be seen in Australia from late October and on Channel 5 in November.
