April Rose Pengilly, who plays April on Neighbours, has announced that the program will soon have a new opening credits sequence.
On Monday (January 10), the Chloe Brennan actor participated in an Instagram Story Q&A, where she was asked by one of her admirers if the new titles would be available soon.
“Yes,” she said, holding up a photo of herself and her friend Phoebe Roberts, a performer.
“Ours looks like it’s on a green screen,” she said, “but please know it’s NOT and that it was actually a pretty long and stressful day with tons of traveling and faffing around.”
Pengilly teasingly continued, “They even had to erase me from a scene because they couldn’t get me back to the studio in time after the opening titles took so long.”
The opening credits will premiere on the long-running Australian soap next week, according to Digital Spy, and while the most of them will be updated pictures, some will be carried over from prior sequences.
According to Pengilly’s article, it’s safe to conclude that a significant portion of the new video were shot on location in Melbourne, rather than on the customary backlot.
Following the much-anticipated wedding day storm calamity that will soon befall Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson) and Kyle Canning, Neighbours has revealed that it will jump one week forward in time (Chris Milligan).
Viewers already know that someone will die in the accident, and the identity of the victim will not be revealed until the next episode, when the residents of Ramsay Street gather for a mystery memorial.
