to be back on the street
Natalie Bassingthwaighte’s return to Neighbours, as the ultimate bad girl Izzy Hoyland, is about to set the pace for high stakes emotional drama. During a break in lming, Nat revealed the real reason she decided to revisit Ramsay Street.
Give us a hint on what are Izzy’s intentions for returning to Ramsay Street?
Izzy is always up to no good and this time is no exception. She knows what she wants and she is going after it. What exactly? You will have to wait and see…
Will she be bringing Holly with her?
Yes, Holly is with her. Izzy may not be the best mother in the world, but she loves her daughter with all her heart.
Does Susan have anything to worry about with Izzy being back in town?
Absolutely – always!
Why did you think this was the right time for you to return to
Neighbours? I wanted to expand my wings and explore other roles. Coming off the back of playing Gillian in The Wrong Girl, who was so measured, Izzy and her jilted version of what’s right and wrong was very enticing – to say the least!
Did you have to do anything to help “find” the character again within you?
I was nervous at rst and wasn’t sure if I even knew how to nd her again. But on that rst day on set, she just came alive! TVS
