“Melancholy”: Neighbours Stars Call It ‘G’Day’ On Final Day Of Filming Australian Soap

The final sequence of the Australian soap Neighbours was shot on Ramsay Street yesterday when the lights went out for the last time.

Former stars of the show, such as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, and Guy Pearce, had all returned to take part in the closing scenes of the show that had made them household names in Australia and throughout the world, but after 37 years, they were calling it a ‘G’day’.

Stefan Dennis, the show’s lone original cast member (with a few gaps along the road), told Australian breakfast show Studio 10 that filming the last scenes was “melancholy.”

“On my very final scene, my very last dialogue session, I sort of locked the studio door behind me,” he remarked. I was taken aback by how emotional I became all of a sudden.

“I went to my dressing room and remained to myself… As a result, today I’m keeping a low profile. If I stay here for too long, I think I’ll be a complete disaster.”

In addition to Minogue, Donovan, and Pearce, the show launched the careers of Margot Robbie, Liam Hemsworth, and Russell Crowe, all of whom have gone on to have international success.

“I was extremely determined to have an ending that would be happy, joyous, and very Neighbours – it would feel rewarding in terms of where the characters and stories are,” the program’s executive producer Jason Herbison told the BBC about finishing the show with a bang, not a whimper.

After Channel 5, the UK broadcaster declared it would no longer be obtaining the show from Fremantle Media in Australia, the decision to end production was made because the show’s financial shortfall had become too severe. The scenes that were shot this week will air on August 1.
