Actor Stefan Dennis of the television show Neighbours has admitted that he dated one of his co-stars but kept it a secret.
The Paul Robinson actor revealed to Stellar Magazine that he dated Natalie Imbruglia back when she appeared on the serial opera in the 1990s.
Prior to her big pop career, Imbruglia portrayed Beth Brennan on the Australian serial opera from 1992 to 1994, and the two actors were able to keep their romance a secret. Stefan acknowledged that after dating Gayle Blakeney as well, he developed a bit of a “ladies’ man” reputation on the soap opera.
There was a rumour that I was making my way through the female cast because of my relationship with Gayle and later, in a closely-kept secret, I was also seeing Natalie Imbruglia.
Prior to the drama’s August finale, the actor confessed he “surprised” himself with how emotional he felt. The actor initially appeared on the soap in 1985 at its start, left eight years later, and then returned in 2004.
It’s a sad day for me today, Stefan said to Studio 10. “On my very final scene, my very last dialogue scene, I sort of closed the studio door behind me, and, yes, I just kind of startled myself by being really upset.
“I just went to my dressing room and remained to myself… I’m staying pretty under the radar today. If I sort of stick around too long, I believe I’ll just be a complete disaster.
After UK broadcaster Channel 5 decided to remove the programme from its schedule, the soap is coming to an end.
Fans will have the opportunity to bid farewell to several former actors as well as the current regular cast, including Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue (Charlene Robinson) (Scott Robinson).
