Following his time on Coronation Street, renowned soap actor Ryan Thomas has gone Down Under for his next project, enjoying a guest role on Neighbours and taking on a mysterious new character that fans already know has a secret or two in his past. This week, Ryan’s been on set with resident heartthrob Matt Wilson, as the pair enjoyed filming a scene together. You can check out a couple of pictures from behind-the-scenes below:

Ryan’s been filming on the soap since October, and is said to have been taken under the wings of some of the younger cast members, spending a lot of time revelling in Melbourne’s social scene when he’s not working, including last week’s very popular Spring Racing Carnival.

A source said: “For someone with a big profile like Ryan, cast and crew have really been taken by surprise by the English star’s laidback and kind nature – he will be missed when he wraps up his guest role at the end of next week.”

The first of Ryan’s Neighbours scenes will come to British screens in February 2018, with his story arc set to take the soap through until some point in March. Exactly what will be going down remains to be seen, but we imagine there are some massive twists and turns to come on Ramsay Street!

Speaking about the new role earlier this year, Ryan said: “I grew up watching Neighbours so to get the chance to join the cast is amazing.

“I was on holiday with my daughter when I got a phone call from my agent asking if I’d like to play this part… I spoke to the producer and found out more – it was very different from anything I’d played before – it was quite a deep, dark story, that really interested me. It’s a new challenge and I can’t wait to start filming.”

Neighbours continues on Channel 5, weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm.
