Neighbors, which is currently entering its 17th season, is Australia’s longest-running drama series. It centers on the lives and drama of the people who live on Ramsay Street, a peaceful cul-de-sac in the hypothetical Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough. The Ramsays, Robinsons, and Clarkes were initially the center of the show, but in the late 1980s, Scott Robinson and Charlene Mitchell’s courtship, which won the hearts of millions of fans, led to their marriage, and the show eventually went global.
In addition to these legends, other well-known figures from the era included Mrs. Mangel, the street’s resident loudmouth, widower Jim Robinson, his ruthless entrepreneur son Paul, and uptight Harold Bishop, who later got engaged to the no-nonsense Madge Ramsay, granddaughter of Jack Ramsay, after whom the street was named.
Hundreds of characters have appeared and disappeared over the years, and as the original families departed, new ones took their place, including the Starks, Willises, and Martins, and then the Scullys, Kennedys, and Hancocks. The elegant grandmother who was always available to provide the residents with advice and encouragement over a cup of herbal tea for many years, Helen Daniels, served as the show’s matriarch. She passed away in 1997 after twelve years on the show. While these might be some of the true legends of the show’s long history, there are quite fascinating cast members in the current season as well, let’s discuss all of them one by one.
