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!

I think it would be incredibly fun! Who wouldn’t want to move in with the Kennedy’s?!

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.

Daniel Goddard Confirms Exit From The Young and the Restless

In shocking news on Tuesday from Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) himself, the actor has revealed via his post on Instagram that he is out at The Young and the Restless – the show that has been his home since 2006 (he first aired in January 2007 and left for a stint in 2011).

Goddard shared: “It is with a heavy heart that I share the news that I will no longer be part of the cast of the Young and the Restless. I am as shocked and gutted as you are… I almost didn’t post but I felt that the most loyal & loving fans an actor could wish for deserved to know and watch the last story arc knowing the rich meaning behind it. I am forever grateful for the 13 years I have been a part of the Y&R family… but sadly it seems that without Neil and Lily there just is no Cane.”

Daniel refers to the late Kristoff St. John who played Neil and his former on-screen other-half, Cristel Khalil (Lily) who opted to go to recurring status with the show and off-contract, and who also now lives in Toronto.

No final airdate for Cane’s exit from the series is available at this time.

This wasn’t the first time Goddard was let-go from Y&R.  Back in 2011 he made an exit, but amid much viewer protest, Y&R re-hired him, and in story, revealed that the character who had been shot was actually Cane’s not-so-nice twin brother.

Currently in story on Y&R is this news over Katherine’s fortune, where it appeared that she left everything to Cane instead of Devon, but that whole set-up has been fishy from the start. Will this facilitate Cane’s exit from Genoa City canvas?

Daniel has been a longtime fan favorite and champion of Y&R and the soap opera genre in general during his entire run with the CBS Daytime soap opera.
