Ac­tion ... cast still lm­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

WHEN Ste­fan Dennis is not busy play­ing the some­times evil busi­ness­man of Ram­say St, Paul Robin­son, he is mak­ing the most of his first visit to the Dou­glas re­gion.

The es­tab­lished ac­tor has been in town since Mon­day film­ing for Neigh­bours, in a sto­ry­line that sees his char­ac­ter try­ing to find Kate Ram­say, played by Ash­leigh Brewer.

“Paul is try­ing to find Kate, she ran away, es­caped her life with­out giv­ing too much away,” he said.

“While she’s es­cap­ing life and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, the shit hits the fan back home in­volv­ing So­phie (Kate’s younger sis­ter) who is go­ing to be taken into care if Kate doesn’t front up and show that she is her le­gal guardian.

“Paul spins this story say­ing I know where she is, she’s on hol­i­days, goes into a wild panic and heads up to Port Dou­glas to find her.”

De­spite the show­ers the re­gion has ex­pe­ri­enced since Tues­day, film­ing is still un­der­way at dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions for the Neigh­bours episodes in­clud­ing the ma­rina on the Quick­sil­ver boats.

It is not all work for Ste­fan while he is up here, as once the cam­eras stop rolling he has a chance to do some sight­see­ing.

“This is the first time I’ve been to Port Dou­glas, I’m a vir­gin to the area,” Ste­fan said.

“On Fri­day it’s film­ing at the villa where Paul’s stay­ing but in the mean­time I’m go­ing to the Moss­man Gorge.

“I’m also go­ing out to the reef on Thurs­day to do some scuba div­ing.”

The Neigh­bours episodes filmed in Port Dou­glas will screen around the world in Fe­bru­ary next year.
