Annie Jones is returning to Neighbours as Jane Harris. ‘

First appearing in 1986, alongside Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce and Jason Donovan, her character became known as “Plain Jane Super Brain,” staying until 1989.

Jane returned for reprisals in 2005 and 2018, and most recently for the show’s 35th anniversary in March, finally acting on her feelings for Des Clarke (Paul Keane). Jones recently appeared on Secret Bridesmaids’ Business.

Jane now returns to Erinsborough with her daughter, Nicolette Stone, played by new cast member, Charlotte Chimes (Schapelle, Catching Milat). Tune in to Neighbours on Wednesday, 15 July for Charlotte’s debut.

Annie Jones said: “I’m so thrilled to be back playing Jane Harris! I’m grateful to again be working with the dedicated cast, crew and team at Neighbours.

“Jane is returning to her old neighbourhood and bringing with her an insight into what her life away from Ramsay Street has been like for the past 30 years. Audiences will learn more about her family life, as fans are introduced to her daughter Nicolette for the first time.”

Charlotte Chimes said: “I’m not going to lie, I have Margot Robbie on my vision board three times. Little did I know I that I’d also end up on Australia’s most iconic series following in her footsteps.

“Getting to work so closely with Annie Jones day in and day out is a gift. Her work is always truthful and nuanced. She sets the bar high, which gives me a lot to work with and bounce off.”

Annie Jones appears from Wednesday, 8 July at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and Charlotte Chimes on July 15.

  1. Yes I have loved Annie’s returns as Jane over the past couple of years. She was really integrated well with the current cast. Her friendships with Paul, Therese and Dippy are a joy to watch. But what of her long awaited reunion with Des? Surely to have them seperate so soon is the ultimate anti-climax. It seems the writers may have been premature in pairing them up for the 35th anniversary specials.

  2. I’m guessing her recent marriage to Des Clarke didn’t work out then. Not much room left in Ramsay Street, so either she’ll be shacking up in an already crowded house or take over the Penthouse at Lassiters.
