Several young, aspiring expat actors, trying to crack the big time, have taken up residence in the same Los Angeles apartment block.
Former Neighbours stars Dichen Lachman, Caitlin Stasey and Margot Robbie have set up base in the West Hollywood complex, along with Trilby Glover, Sophie King, Les Chantery and Matthew Newton’s former fiancee, Rachael Taylor.
Glover, who appeared in the film Righteous Kill alongside Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, said the antipodean takeover of the block was gradual.
“Dichen lived here first and then everyone else just flocked to this apartment block,” said Glover, 29.
“My apartment door is literally one metre from Dichen’s, so I can actually lean through my window and chat with her.
“Les and Rachael Taylor live upstairs, Caitlin lives across the garden and Margot’s staying with her at the moment; it’s like an Aussie Melrose Place.”
Lachman, 28, who has won roles in Hawaii Five-O and sci-fi series Dollhouse, said her home life often reminded her of her days on Neighbours.
“All of Ramsay Street pretty much comes through,” she said.
