Annie Jones - pictured as Jane with Mike (played by Guy Pearce) - will return in April
Neighbours legend Annie Jones is reprising her role as Jane Harris, popularly known as ‘Plain Jane Superbrain’.
Jane, who famously arrived on Ramsay Street as a nerdy bookworm before becoming an amazing beauty, is on a mission to rectify the past and settle some unfinished business.
Annie Jones, pictured below, said: “I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to return to Neighbours. As an actor, the best thing you can be is a working actor. I’ve done a lot of guest roles but usually very short lived so this has been lovely to come back for an extended period and really get my teeth into a part.”
Stefan Dennis, who plays Paul Robinson and is the the only remaining member of the cast on Neighbours from 1986 when Annie joined the show, said of his former co-star: “This is going to sound terribly gushy, Annie is just the same as she was on the show 30 years ago, kind, funny and just a beautiful person to be around. I’ve loved having her back on set.”
Jason Herbison, Neighbours’ Executive Producer added: “Annie is a beloved star from the golden era of Neighbours and we are honoured to have her back on the show. She had a very interesting take on what her character Jane might be up to nowadays and we incorporated it into the storyline. There’s warmth and nostalgia yet also a very fascinating character journey.”
Jane Harris will make a comeback to Neighbours in early April.
