Now this could be truly incredible – both for new Academy Award winner, Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) – and for the long running Australian soap opera Neighbours!  In fact, rumors are persisting that Redmayne may make a cameo appearance in the soap opera’s upcoming 30th anniversary episodes later this month!

It all started when after winning Best Actor at the 87th Academy Awards, Redmayne praised long-running Neighbours stars: Alan Fletcher (who stars as Dr Karl Kennedy) and Jackie Woodburne (who plays Susan Kennedy). “I think they’re amazing,” Eddie related. “I’m a huge fan of them from old.  I’ve learned a lot from them from watching them daily.”

Redmayne also told Elle UK, “They are the greatest unsung acting duo in history. Watch, and you’ll find that everything they do is on another level of genius. I really do think so.”  He also revealed he would have stage fright if he ever got to work with Woodburne and Fletcher!

Apparently, all of this was not lost on Neighbours series producer Jason Herbison, who got wind of Eddie’s love for the fictional Kennedy’s of Ramsay Street and said to Australia’s The Sun: ‘If we could cap off an incredible year for Eddie by writing a guest role, however big or small, it would be our privilege.  I would ensure he moves into the Kennedys’ – they are renowned for hospitality.’

So what do you think? Will Eddie get the chance to act with his acting idols from the Australian soap opera?  What do you think of Eddie’s passion for the soap duo, and the cameo offer? Comment below!

Both Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore seem like real class acts!

I think it would be incredibly fun! Who wouldn’t want to move in with the Kennedy’s?!
I started watching Neighbours & Coronation Street after AMC & OLTL were cancelled! They are both on hulu now, I never miss an episode!

Coronation Street is currently my favorite series…so down to earth and realistic with its character driven middle class working families…Tracy is my favorite villain…the show has humor and no silly campy stuff…children act like children and age normally unlike that ridiculous fast aging on our American soaps…dead are really dead but i wish Tina could come back…i will miss Deidre with the passing of A.K. in reallife…i see Ken and Audrey becoming a couple…cheers!

Accolades from such a brilliant actor does well for the genre…they’d be incredibly lucky if he agreed to a cameo.

What will happen when Spencer learns that the father he grieved for over three years is alive and well?

Meanwhile, Bechtel took to Twitter to confirm his return to the ABC daytime drama series expressing: “Well…it’s out of the bag. It was so hard not to reply to all of you.

Viewers are looking forward to scenes between Bechtel and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava), Genie Francis (Laura) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin). Will those all come to pass? Stay tuned.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
