There were recent whisperings that the show might be making a comeback, but they never eventuated into a full series return. It also definitely wouldn’t have been the same without seeing sisters Claire and Tess together.
Now, 15 years later Lisa Chappell, the actress who portrayed Claire, has told TV Week as part of a series of interviews with the cast and creators, what it was like filming that pivotal scene.
After filming three seasons, Chappell decided to not renew her contract and leave the show. From the moment the cast and show creator, Posie Graeme-Evans, knew about her decision they had a very difficult and painful decision to make.
“I said, ‘Look, I’m not coming back – Claire would never leave the property, so we have to kill her off,'” said Chappell.
