Former Neighbours’ star Rebekah Elmaloglou reveals more behind the scenes secrets about final scenes

Neighbors star Rebekah Elmaloglou says the cast had NO IDEA when Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan were on set to shoot finale – while Guy Pearce ‘didn’t want any special treatment’

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan snuck under the radar to shoot their final scenes for the finale of Neighbours.

And not even the key cast knew the superstars were in Ramsay street, says Neighbors stalwart Rebekah Elmaloglou.

The 48-year-old actress revealed the behind-the-scenes secret in an interview with The Advertiser on Saturday.

Rebekah, who played Teresa Willis on the long-running soap, said that the producers were determined to keep the return of the couple – and their beloved characters Scott and Charlene – ‘hush-hush’.

‘I didn’t see Jason and Kylie – none of us at the studio were even aware they were at Ramsay Street shooting,’ Rebekah told the publication.

Charlene and Scott’s love story captured the hearts of Neighbors fans across the world and the actor and pop star’s return to the soap has resulted in fever-pitch excitement from fans.

Kylie and Jason joined a long list of former Neighbors stars lured back for the final episodes, filmed last month, including Guy Pearce.

Rebekah said in contrast to the high-profile ex-lovers, the Alien: Covenant star was a highly visible presence on the Neighbors set.

‘He was so wonderful,’ she said. ‘He was just walking around the studios and he didn’t want any special treatment.’

In 1991 Rebekah and Guy shared a romance – only on screen – in rival soap Home and Away, playing boyfriend and girlfriend.

Neighbors was axed after the UK’s Channel 5 decided in March not to renew its contract with production company Fremantle to finance and broadcast the series.

Guy enjoyed a cast reunion as he filmed the emotional final scenes with former co-stars Ian Smith, who played the legendary Harold Bishop, and Henrietta Graham, Annie Jones and Peter O’Brien.
