They’re all pursuing international careers abroad, but it seems some of Neighbours’ successful alumni haven’t forgotten their Ramsay Street roots.
Margot Robbie was joined by Natalie Blair, Pippa Black, Jordy Lucas and Ashleigh Brewer recently for a mini Neighbours reunion of their own in Los Angeles.
Clearly comfortable with her former Australian co-stars, 24-year-old Margot swapped her glamorous Hollywood attire for a casual chic look in the reunion image posted to Natalie’s Instagram account.
‘Reunion @_ashbrewer @jordylucas3 @margotrobbie #TofuPony #Neighbours,’ 30-year-old Natalie who played Carmella Cammeniti on the show captioned the image.
SOME of Margot Robbie’s former colleagues on the hit soap series Neighbours have recalled the young rising star’s first days on set almost seven years ago as a very green actress.
The Gold Coast-born performer is now one of Hollywood’s new ‘it’ girls after starring in Wolf of Wall Street alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.
But when she stumbled onto the fictional Ramsay Street back in 2008, her future was anything but certain. Robbie was just 18 when she brought the character of Donna Freedman to life.
She earned her acting stripes on Australia’s celebrated soap opera Neighbours.
And when Margot Robbie starred alongside Leonardo Di Caprio on The Wolf of Wall Street, she couldn’t resist giving the movie star a lesson in all things Ramsay Street.
As the 24-year-old returned to the set for the 30th anniversary reunion special recently, she told Sunday Telegraph that he was quite intrigued about the soap.
The blonde bombshell said: ‘When I started on [The] Wolf [of Wall Street], Leo and Martin Scorsese had heard of Neighbours and were aware of what it was, but they hadn’t seen any episodes.
‘So he went onto YouTube and watched a few clips.’
Despite coming a long way since her days on the Aussie soap, Margot, who played Donna Freedman from 2008 to 2011 is still good friends with her onscreen husband Ringo Brown, played by Sam Clark.
Last month the Hollywood actress, was seen with the handsome chap at a private screening in L.A for her newest film, Focus in which she stars alongside Will Smith.
Margot and the 27-year-old were reportedly seen laughing at the event and are clearly still very close.
Both actors left Neighbours within months of each other with Ringo dying after being hit by a motorcycle in 2010 and Donna leaving for fashion school in New York City in 2011.
I seen the add myself during neighbours this evening, Margot will be one of the stars who started the beginning of a successful career on Neighbours along with the likes of Delta Goodrem, Guy Pearce and Kylie Minogue. Australian viewers will be lucky enough to see this airing on Channel 10, Monday 16th March. Here is the small preview:
* Sorry I was abit slack and didnt put up what was going on with Donna in last weeks eps of Neighbours.

Other countries will have afew more weeks to go but its gunna be sad to see our fav character leave.x
