Jane Badler’s Neighbours debut

By David Knox on June 18, 2010 / Filed Under Programming 13

Jane Badler makes her debut in Neighbours next week.

Best known for her villainess role in the original V series she plays ‘Diana Marshall’, CEO of the Daniel’s Corporation which owns Lassisters.

She arrives in Erinsborough to stir things up for ‘Paul Robinson’ after ‘Declan’ contacts her about some money ‘Paul’ has been moving around between companies.

‘Diana’ wants to bring down ‘Paul Robinson’ down….

Fittingly, her character is named ‘Diana,’ in tribute to the role she made famous on V.

She starts on air next Monday.

    She might be able to eat the mice that inhabit the cafe. :)

    Oh she was in Cluedo? Loved that show! Never saw the original V so didn’t know her on that.

    Anyway, will be good to see how she goes on Neighbours.

    She’s terrific. Neighbours needs a boost right now.

    I’ve always loved her since her appearances on Mission: Impossible and Cluedo. I might have to start watching Neighbours again…

    This is so weird, I have been watching the 2 miniseries and the original TV series that followed it for the first time over the last couple of weeks, classic stuff!
    This is going to be awesome, I don’t usually watch Neighbours, but will have to check it out to see what her character is like.

    She looks like a super bitch, they should get rid of all the young characters and bring in characters like this in true soap fashion. It’s the only way to finally improve this show.

    I love Jane Badler, she’s a great actress. Look forward to seeing her strut her stuff – complete with shoulder pads of course!

    @ ray – four months i believe but who knows it could be extended if her character is a success.
