Aussie stars stick together in LA

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.

Brewer: Losing Margot was hard

Ashleigh Brewer has admitted it was tough to say goodbye to her Neighbours co-star Margot Robbie.

Ashleigh, who plays Kate Ramsay, used to share a flat with Margot, who has filmed her final scenes as Donna Freedman.

With several Neighbours departures on the cards, Ashleigh said: “The hardest person to let go of was Margot.”

But she said her colleague, who hopes to pursue a career in the US, was given a “really impressive” send-off by everyone at the soap.

“Everyone from the building, from the producers to the wardrobe department, came into the studio to watch her final scene. She was a really respected colleague and friend.

“It was hard to say goodbye but she’s on to bigger and better things.”

Ashleigh added: “She lived with me last year but not now I’m on my own and she decided to move in with her boyfriend but we remained really close at work. I miss her.”

Erin Mullally, Jane Hall and Matthew Werkmeister – who play Declan Napier, Rebecca Napier and Zeke Kinski respectively – are all set to leave the soap too.

Stefan Dennis on Margot Robbie

Here is what Stefan Dennis had to say about Margot & her leaving the show:

There are a few departures on the cards at Neighbours. Are you sad Margot Robbie, who plays Donna, is leaving?

Yes, she’s a darling. We call her Maggot. She’s great. She’s kooky. She’s Goldie Hawn kooky.

Do you think she’ll be a success in the US?

I don’t know. I like to think she’s got what it takes to crack it over there, or anywhere. She’s got the looks, the talent but more than anything she’s got great comedy timing. Whether she knows it or not, I don’t know. I can quite easily see her in a sitcom, almost a Dharma and Greg type thing. Something vague and kooky.

Also added a new photoshoot picture to the gallery:
