Actor Steve Bastoni and the Parker family are leaving Ramsay Street.
“I only planned to be on the show for a year to 18 months but I’ve been here two years now and have done enough – and there’s nowhere else for the character to go,” Bastoni told News Limited.
“I’m going to stay down here and look for a place to buy on the Mornington Peninsula and settle down. I have family down here now so I’m not going to relocate unless absolutely necessary.”
Bastoni, who was a regular on Police Rescue, admits he wasn’t prepared for the speed and volume of the Neighbours grind.
As reported here last month, there are also new, younger Ramsay family members returning to the show while long-timer Harold Bishop (Ian Smith) takes his leave on February 27th.
