Was there anyone you particularly liked working with, or any storylines you especially enjoyed from almost three years playing Stonie?
Working with Ryan Moloney (Toadfish) was always good fun.
How did your departure from the series in 1996 come about?
It was time to move on.
Where did your career take you in the years that followed your departure?
After travelling for a couple of years, I have been mostly working behind the camera. Writing, directing and editing. It's not as much fun as acting but it's very exciting and when it works well, it's extremely fulfilling.
2003 saw you briefly reprise the role of Stonie for Toadie and Dee’s wedding. How did that come about? Did you enjoy your return to the show?
They asked me if I wanted to come back and I thought 'why not?' It was nice to see a few old friends again.
How had things changed on-set in the 7 years since you left?
It was pretty much the same as it had always been. A few new faces but I felt right at home.
With Ryan Moloney still in the cast as his brother, Toadie, is there any chance that we might see Stonie back on Ramsay Street in the future?
Who knows? You'll have to stay tuned to find out.
Do you still get recognised in public thanks to your Neighbours role?
Not any more. People think they went to high school with you or worked in an office with you once.
Are you still in touch with anyone from your Neighbours days?
Have you ever been a Neighbours viewer?
It's not my cup of tea but I am constantly surprised by who watches the show.
What are you up to these days?
Writing, directing and editing. Occasionally I do some acting.
Finally, as the show begins its 23rd season on Australian screens, what do you think accounts for its enduring success?
It never tried to be anything it wasn't. Good characters going through dramatic events will always hold some interest for us as humans. The international popularity of the show is a real blessing also.
