Chance to join the cast of Neigh­bours

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

IF YOU have ever wanted to ap­pear on the pop­u­lar soapie Neigh­bours, here is your chance.

The cast and crew of Neigh­bours will be ar­riv­ing in Port Dou­glas this week­end to film a se­ries of episodes and pro­duc­ers are look­ing for 120 lo­cals to ap­pear as back­ground ex­tras.

Ex­tras are re­quired for four to six-hour slots be­tween Oc­to­ber 17-21 at a va­ri­ety of lo­ca­tions around Port Dou­glas.

Guest star of the show Lin­coln Lewis can­not wait to get to the re­gion and min­gle with the lo­cals.

Hav­ing re­cently com­pleted movies 33 Post­cards with Guy Pearce and Bait 3D and wrapped up tele­vi­sion shows SLiDE and the Un­der­belly Ra­zor se­ries, Lin­coln is ready to re­lax in be­tween film­ing.

“Any time off I will cruise down to the beach,” he said.

“I can’t wait to get up there and en­joy that su­per laid­back Queens­land life­style I grew up with.

“I re­ally want to go back to the Great Bar­rier Reef and also see the Dain­tree rain­for­est and check out the Moss­man Gorge.”

The work­ing hol­i­day with Neigh­bours will see the 23-year-old ac­tor play­ing the char­ac­ter Do­minic Emmerson, a marine bi­ol­o­gist who is a bit of a Casanova un­til he meets good girl Kate Ram­say (Ash­leigh Brewer).

“As soap story lines go, he is muck­ing around be­ing a typ­i­cal lad but he sees some­thing dif­fer­ent in Kate, the re­ally nice chick and he wants to get to know her,” Lin­coln said.

“She sees his smart-arse ex­te­rior but un­der­neath he is also a re­ally nice guy.”

But lo­cals might find it hard to steal the star’s heart as Lin­coln is in a re­la­tion­ship with Rhi­an­non Fish, who plays April on Home and Away.

“It doesn’t mean to say I can’t say a po­lite hello and hang out with who­ever is will­ing to hang out with me, I am dead keen to meet the lo­cals,” Lin­coln said.

“It seems the fur­ther north you go the more wel­com­ing and friendly and gen­uinely nice peo­ple you meet.”

Film­ing starts on Mon­day around Port Dou­glas in­clud­ing Macrossan St, Four Mile Beach and the Ma­rina.

To put your hand up for a back­ground ex­tra role, email a photo of your­self and con­tact de­tails to cast­ing agent Ran­jini Rusch at ran­jinir­usch@ya­hoo.com as soon as pos­si­ble.
