Soap World - - THE GOSS! -

Neigh­bours star TAKAYA HONDA has echoed fans’ calls for the soap to fea­ture a same-sex mar­riage sto­ry­line, po­ten­tially be­tween his char­ac­ter David and his most no­table love in­ter­est Aaron ( MATT WIL­SON), in the wake of Australia le­gal­is­ing same­sex unions. Asked in a re­cent in­ter­view if he’d like the soap to ex­plore the is­sue, Honda said, “Ab­so­lutely! Whether that’s a David-and-Aaron wed­ding, or some­body else, I’m re­ally hop­ing Neigh­bours gets the op­por­tu­nity. Neigh­bours has worked re­ally hard to en­sure they re­flect the wider com­mu­nity so I think it’s a re­ally im­por­tant step. Hope­fully we get to do it soon.”
