“Midway through the huge Lassiter’s Hotel explosion storyline we had a six week production break.
“During that time, the set had 24 hour security guards watching over it keeping people away.
“As it was outdoors the entire building was fenced and covered in tarpaulins so no one could sneak in, take photos and reveal the upcoming storyline.”
The filming of scenes doesn’t always go in order
“A lot of the time we will shoot the ending of a storyline before the start.
“That makes it difficult to keep your characters continuity right. Especially if you have to throw on the waterworks for a scene like the Brennan boys did after we learned of our Dad’s death.”

“Fletch [Alan Fletcher] also loves golf or working on his other show ‘Photo #6’. Lily and Zoe both love a surf. Felix, if you didn’t know already is an incredibly talented musician and usually writes music in down time.
“Me, I’m looking for a new adventure. As I write this I’m broken down in the middle of the Australia desert waiting for a tow truck. The local river is full of crocodiles.”

“All the time. Usually between Scotty, Travis and myself. Just like real brothers, you have to watch your back.
“Sometimes it’s a bucket of water above the door or an airhorn whilst you sleep. One time I had a sign made up that said: ‘Hi, I’m Tyler from Neighbours’ and stuck it to the side of Travis’ car. His drive home was interesting.
Who is the biggest prankster?
Scotty is the O.G. prankster. It always starts with him. His latest is leaving notes on cast members desks calling them up to the office.
