That’s when good neighbours become super famous Hollywood superstars.
Neighbours turns 30 this week. That’s right, it’s been three decades since the Aussie drama’s humble beginnings as a Channel Seven soapie.
Today the show, which moved to Channel Ten in 1986, is one of just three shows in the Logies Hall of Fame. It’s also Australia’s longest running drama series, bringing with it an impressively long list of former cast members who have made it big in Hollywood or right here at home.
Among the ranks are those well-known like Kylie Minogue, Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Delta Goodrem. But there’s also a few more sneaky familiar faces that you may not have picked.
