Peter Flanigan has revealed he thought his acting days were over before winning his role in Neighbours.
Peter cut his acting teeth in long-running US serial As The World Turns during his early days as a model in New York.
But Peter – who was once the face of Gillette – didn’t enjoy the experience and thought his time as an actor was over.
“A friend of mine convinced me to go back to acting, so I decided to give it another shot and I got the role as Andrew Simpson,” he explained.
Peter added that he was enjoying his time on the soap.
He told the official Neighbours website: “I’m really enjoying my time on Neighbours. I love the location shooting and the people. Everybody here has been really helpful and they’re all so interesting.”
