SHORT & SWEET
with ALAN FLETCHER
You’ve played Neighbours’ Dr Karl Kennedy for nearly 23 years. Surely that qualifies you as a rea real doctor? does,does but sadly the A Australian MedicalMed Association disagrees. Do strangers come up and ask you to look at their rash? All the time. I never It look – who wants to see that?! You’re in a band called Waiting Room. Pathology Lab would’ve been a nice alternative. Indeed, but I would fear not coming up well under analysis. How do your screen wife and your real wife get along? They get along famously. Two wives isn’t too much for a man like me! Do you actually have good neighbours? Everybody needs them… They’re brilliant. We look out for each other and love a drink and catch-up. Eddie Redmayne said he learnt to act from watching you. Do you ever wonder what other Oscar winners you’ve schooled via the telly? I can see a lot of me in Robert De Niro’s work. Neighbours airs 6.30pm weeknights, on ELEVEN.
