Valentina LARPs around on Neighbours

Valentina Novakovic has had to do some pretty crazy things playing her Neighbours character, wild child Natasha Williams - and today has been no exception.

Valentina Novakovic  has had to do some pretty crazy things playing her character, wild child Natasha Williams - and today has been no exception.

On set at Neighbours’ Melbourne studios, the plucky 22-year-old experienced probably one of the more unusual activities expected of her - LARPing, a live action role-playing game with a medieval theme.

Without giving too much way, Tash is introduced to the hobby by a new guy friend who has a surprising impact on her, taking her on an interesting adventure.

'It's probably not my thing, I kept saying sorry to the LARPers I was whacking with my sword, which is not something you do in the thick of battle,' jokes Valentina. 'However, because it was so different from what Tash normally gets up to, we had a lot of fun.'

Look out for Valentina's LARPing debut on air in July.
