Stefan: 'Quitting Neighbours was stupid'
Stefan Dennis has admitted that he had unrealistic expectations when he quit Neighbours in the '90s.

The 51-year-old left his part as Paul Robinson on the Australian show in 1992 because he wanted to pursue new acting roles.

Reflecting on the decision, Dennis told TV Week: "I was stupid. I thought I was going to go to Hollywood and conquer the world, and I didn't. Fortunately, I worked constantly in the UK for the 12 years I was gone."

The actor also confirmed that he wants the soap's producers to retain Paul's "evil" streak in future plotlines.

He commented: "I hated [being good]. It was nothing like playing evil Paul. The fans like Paul to be bad too."

Dennis made a return to Ramsay Street in 2004, when Paul arrived back in Erinsborough with a bang by setting fire to Lassiter's. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
