TEN this week announced Kerry Armstrong in a guest role for Neighbours.
The former Wrong Girl actress will play Alice Wells, described as a demure and kind-hearted shortbread baking nanna. However, it quickly becomes clear that there is more to Alice than a mixing bowl and rolling pin, as she cooks up a shocking plan involving one of Ramsay Street’s favourite households.”
“It is not often you get to be so creative in your own backyard so when the producers asked me to play the role of Alice Wells in Neighbours it was simply irresistible,” Armstrong said.
“Alice is a character who pushes every boundary and is a force to be reckoned with. I was looking to challenge and stretch myself to the limits playing a phenomenal character and Alice is just that”.
Neighbours’ Executive Producer, Jason Herbison said: “Kerry is a legend of Australian film and television and we are honoured to have her in Neighbours. This character is one of my all-time favourites and she is the perfect actress to bring her to life. We had a lot of fun plotting the storyline and Kerry has the crew mesmerised with her performance.”
Network TEN Executive Producer of Neighbours, Sara Richardson, said: “We are so delighted to have Kerry on Ramsay Street. It has been so much fun watching her bring such a compelling energy to the character Alice. She is a force to be reckoned with.”
The role also sees Armstrong back at the Nunawading studios where she filmed Prisoner in the 1970s.
She will appear on air in late October.
