Rosie's Off Too!
Sept. 29 2007

Neighbours.com has today confirmed the reports that Eliza Taylor-Cotter (Janae) and Ben Lawson (Frazer) are leaving, and added a new name into the mix. Many fans were worried about how Frazer could possibly leave Erinsborough without Rosie, but now it seems that she's going too. Natalie Saleeba will film her final scenes at the end of 2007, along with Ben, but they'll be on Australian screens until April, and UK screens until June.

More Cast Changes
Sept. 23 2007

The Herald Sun reports that another cast member is set to leave Neighbours by the end of the year. We already reported last month that Eliza Taylor-Cotter will film her final scenes as Janae Timmins next month, and it seems that Ben Lawson (Frazer Yeats) will be following her out of Erinsborough, filming his final scenes by the end of 2007.

It's not all bad new though; a couple of cast members have signed new contracts bringing them to late 2008. Natalie Blair (Carmella Cammeniti) has extended her contract until September of next year, while Daniel O'Connor (Ned Parker) will remain until at least October 2008.

Petra Yared Returns
Sept. 22 2007

Petra Yared made her first Neighbours guest appearance back in 1996 in the guest role of tomboy Georgia 'George' Brown, then went on to have a very successful film and television career, with roles in Muggers, Blurred, MDA and The Secret Life Of Us amongst others. She's currently filming a new Neighbours guest role, this time playing Mia Silvani, the sister of new regular cast member Marco Silvani (Jesse Rosenfeld) who makes his first appearance on Australian screens next month.

Special thanks to Daria from PetraYared.com for providing us with this spoiler.
