Neighbours cast return for 2013 filming

The Neighbours cast and crew returned revitalised to the Melbourne studios this week after a well-earned Christmas break, ready and raring to go for 40 weeks' more filming this year.

Scott Major, who plays Lucas Fitzgerald, and Alan Fletcher, aka Dr Karl Kennedy, wrapped up their first week's shooting on the show’s back lot, which houses the exteriors of some of Neighbours' iconic sets.

This year Neighbours celebrates its 28th anniversary on Australian television screens and its 27th in the UK.

'While I admit, it did take a little longer this week to memorise the lines, it comes back pretty quickly and I’m very excited about the stories coming up,' says Alan.

    @Tashwilliamsfans, Nicola Charles has said she would like to return full time. Carla Bonner has a big announcement to make, there's rumors that Carla's annoucement could be that she is back permanently. I Contracts can be extended. Scott McGregor's original stint was revealed as 4 weeks, which was then extended to a full time role. I think Carla and Scott could be back full time and with Nicola wanting to return full time, it's just contract details that need discussing. THINGS CAN CHANGE.

    @neighbours1281 The Turner Family are replacing 5 characters who are leaving. (Summer, Tash, Andrew, Sophie and Rhys). Remember, Neighbours got a smakk budget so I don't think the 3 returnees will be back for good. Neighbours has confirmed on twitter that Mark is only back for a month. Carla Bonner has stated many times that she is back for 2 months. Nicola Charles has already finished filming... When Harold came back in 2011, he came back for 6 weeks which is what it was originally stated. The same applied for Carmella and Oliver. When Malcolm returned, he came back for 4 months as stated.

    Aren't the five members of the Turner family replacing the five departing cast members on the Neighbours salary budget? A month's guest role to give the actress who plays the terminally dull Kate Ramsay a script that she can get her teeth stuck into will suffice...

    @Lara, There's a chance Scott McGregor will extend his contract and return full time. With 5 characters leaving, in the next few months, they need the 3 returning characters to stick around. Scott is not just eye candy, he is also a very good actor. Scott's first stint in 2010 started of as a month guest stint and then his role was extended to a full time regular rol.e Hope he does stay. He will give the ratings a good boost.

    @neighboursfan1281, I'm glad you're excited about Brennan's return but Neighbours is not Home And Away. Neighbours does not need eye candy and they're not shallow about good looking actors. At least Brennan is back for a month and Neighbours can focus on its good actors which is more important than "eye-candy" actors.

    Can't wait for Mark Brennan to return. His storyline sounds interesting. Plus they will be some decent eye candy on the show again. Also looking forward to Sarah and Steph's return.
