Neighbours newcomer Jane Badler has admitted that she experienced a tough start to life on set.

It was previously announced that the actress will be playing the villainous Diana Marshall, a love interest for the devious Paul Robinson.

Speaking to Holy Soap about filming her first scenes, she revealed: "I had a couple of days early on that were just really, really hard - I could not get it together.

"And I think everyone does that. I noticed a few of the other new people. They all went through the same thing, where you have a day where you just go, 'Wow, I can't seem to function!'

"I kind of didn't express that I was having any trouble, I just did it. I think you just do it - you just go in and you do it.

"Everyone was really nice. You get used to the pace and it's really fun. And as soon as you get through that, it's okay."

Badler is best known for the original V series in 1983, in which she also played a character called Diana. Earlier this week, she was tipped to reprise her role on the modern-day ABC version. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
