Exclusive: “Melancholy”: Neighbours Stars Call It ‘G’Day’ On Final Day Of Filming Australian Soap



“Melancholy”: Neighbours Stars Call It ‘G’Day’ On Final Day Of Filming Australian Soap

#Melancholy #Neighbours #Stars #Call #GDay #Final #Day #Filming #Australian #Soap

The lights went out for the last time on Ramsay Street yesterday, as the very final scene of Australian soap Neighbours was put in the can.

Former stars of the show, including Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce had all returned to join in the final scenes of the show which had made them household names in Australia and beyond, but was calling it a ‘G’day’ after 37 years.

Stefan Dennis, the only actor in Neighbours to be with the show from the beginning (bar a few breaks along the way), told Australian breakfast programme Studio 10 the experience of filming the last scenes had been “melancholy.”

He said: “I sort of closed the studio door behind me on my very last scene, my very last dialogue scene and… I suddenly surprised myself by getting incredibly emotional.

“I just kept to myself and went to my dressing room… so I’m keeping a very low profile today. I think I’ll just be an absolute mess if I sort of hang around too long.”

As well as Minogue, Donovan and Pearce, the show launched the careers of several internationally successful Australian actors, including Margot Robbie, Liam Hemsworth and Russell Crowe.

The show’s executive producer Jason Herbison told the BBC about signing off the show with a bang, not a whimper, revealing: “I was really keen to have an ending that would be fulfilling, joyous and would be very Neighbours – it would feel satisfying in terms of where the characters and the storylines are.”

The decision to finish making the soap came after Channel 5, the broadcaster airing the show in the UK, confirmed it would no longer be acquiring the show from Fremantle Media in Australia, and this left too large a gap in the show’s funding. The scenes filmed this week will be broadcast on August 1.

Travis Barker is on the road to recovery. 

Less than a week after being admitted to the hospital for pancreatitis, it appears the Blink-182 drummer is back at home. Travis seemingly confirmed the news on July 4 while sharing an image to his Instagram Story of flowers he received from mother-in-law Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble.

“Dearest Travis,” a note attached to the flowers read, “Get well soon!!!! We love you.” Travis captioned the photo, which appeared to be taken at his residence in Calabasas, Calif., with a “thank you” to the couple.

On July 3, Travis’ wife Kourtney Kardashian hinted that he’d been released from the hospital by posting a photo from inside his vintage convertible. That same day, Travis shared a picture to his own Instagram Story, showing a basket filled with board games, including Battleship, Monopoly and Operation.

E! News confirmed on June 28 that Travis was brought by ambulance to a Los Angeles hospital. On July 2, Travis shared details on his health journey on social media.

Exclusive: Amber Heard seeks to throw out verdict in Johnny Depp defamation trial –




Amber Heard seeks to throw out verdict in Johnny Depp defamation trial

#Amber #Heard #seeks #throw #verdict #Johnny #Depp #defamation #trial

Amber Heard’s lawyers have asked a judge to throw out the $10.35 million verdict against her in the defamation case filed by ex-husband Johnny Depp, arguing that the verdict was not supported by the evidence and that one of the jurors may not have been properly vetted by the court.

In post-trial motions filed Friday, Heard’s attorneys call the jury’s June 1 award of $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages to Depp “excessive” and “indefensible.”

They ask the judge to set aside the verdict and dismiss Depp’s lawsuit or order a new trial. Immediately after the verdict, the judge reduced the compensatory damages to $350,000 under a state cap.

Depp sued Heard for libel in Fairfax County Circuit Court over a December 2018 op-ed she wrote in The Washington Post describing herself as “a public figure representing domestic abuse.” Depp’s lawyers alleged he was defamed by the article even though it never mentioned him by name.

The six-week televised trial turned into a spectacle that offered a window into their dysfunctional marriage. Much of the testimony focused on Heard’s claims that she had been physically and sexually abused by Depp. Heard described more than a dozen alleged assaults, including a fight in Australia — where Depp was shooting a Pirates of the Caribbean sequel — in which Depp lost the tip of his middle finger and Heard said she was sexually assaulted with a liquor bottle.

In their post-trial motions, Heard’s legal team argued that to find that Heard had actual malice, Depp would have had to show that at the time Heard’s article was published, she did not believe she had been abused.

“Instead, the evidence overwhelmingly supported Ms. Heard believed she was the victim of abuse at the hands of Mr. Depp,” Heard’s lawyers say in their motion.

Heard’s lawyers also ask the judge to investigate “potential improper juror service,” alleging that one of the jurors who was chosen to serve on the jury was listed as being born in 1945 in documents given to the attorneys before the jury selection process, but is listed as being born in 1970 in publicly available information.

“This discrepancy raises the question whether Juror 15 actually received a summons for jury duty and was properly vetted by the Court to serve on the jury,” Heard’s lawyers said in their motion.

Depp’s attorneys did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The jury also awarded Heard $2 million in her counterclaim against Depp, finding that Heard was defamed by one of Depp’s lawyers, who accused her of creating a detailed hoax that included roughing up the couple’s apartment to look worse for police.

In some ways, the trial was a replay of a lawsuit Depp filed in the United Kingdom against a British tabloid after he was described as a “wife beater.” The judge in that case ruled in the newspaper’s favor in 2020 after finding that Heard was telling the truth in her descriptions of abuse.
