Sorensen: 'Declan recast will be simple'

Neighbours star James Sorensen has revealed that the forthcoming transformation of his character Declan Napier will take place without any fuss.

Last month, it was announced that Erin Mullally is to take over the role of the Ramsay Street favourite because Sorensen is leaving the programme.

Speaking to Holy Soap about how the recast will work, Sorensen explained: "[It'll be] nothing over the top. I'm Declan one day and the next day it's Erin. Pretty simple.

"That's how it works, I can't continue, so Erin comes in and picks up the baton. I think it's easier for the viewers to accept when it's a simple change-over."

The actor added that he is still backing the decision to recast Declan and hopes that viewers will grow to accept Mullally's interpretation of the character.

He said: "Erin will come in and play his version of Declan, he can't play it exactly as I do and I and the producers would never expect him to do it any other way. All I can say to the Declan supporters is that Erin will be terrific, give him a go, you'll be surprised."

Sorensen decided to quit Neighbours because he wants to pursue a career away from television. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
