Neighbours newcomer Jordan Smith has admitted that he is enjoying his kissing scenes on the soap.
The actor, who was cast in the role of Paul Robinson’s son Andrew last year, was required to lock lips with co-star Margot Robbie (Donna Freedman) during his first day on set.
Reflecting on the experience, Smith commented: “It’s bit weirder in rehearsals because you come face-to-face and don’t kiss. You’re just kind of breathing on each other. But when you kiss it’s pretty fun actually!”
Speaking to the show’s official website, he added: “When I told my mates I’d be kissing Margot Robbie they were pretty stoked. I didn’t know who Margot was. I hadn’t watched the show before. But when I saw her I thought, ‘This isn’t going to be difficult’.
“Because she’s such a good actress and she’s really professional she made it really easy. She talked me through it and said ‘don’t worry about it’.”
Smith’s first scenes will air on UK screens next week.

Neighbours star Margot Robbie has admitted that she was stunned to land her role on the soap.
The actress feared that she had performed badly after auditioning for the part of Donna Freedman and soon jetted off for a holiday without waiting to hear back from the show’s bosses.
Robbie told the Herald Sun: “I went to Canada to go snowboarding with my boyfriend. I didn’t give it a moment’s thought. I thought I’d done a really bad audition, so I just walked out and thought, ‘Oh well’.
“But you know, you get one phone call and it changes your life. We’d been in Canada for two days and I got that call and I sort of said, ‘Bye, I guess I’m leaving for home’. But I did manage one day of snowboarding.”
Discussing her eccentric alter ego, she continued: “[Donna’s] really dramatic, but I guess I can be a bit dramatic at times. Playing her is always fun – it’s a huge amount of fun – but it is exhausting. It’s often 15 hours a day and there are times that you get sick because you are so run down.”
The 19-year-old recently spoke of how she would like to land a ‘grittier’ role in the future.
