'Neighbours' actor backs new love plot

By
Scott McGregor who plays Mark Brennan in Neighbours

Channel 5

Scott McGregor has revealed that he is pleased to have Ashleigh Brewer as his new screen love interest in Neighbours.

In scenes soon to air in Australia, the pair's alter egos Detective Mark Brennan and Kate Ramsay will embark on a relationship to the surprise of some Ramsay Street residents.

Speaking to TV Week about working closely with Brewer, McGregor commented: "We've become good mates. I get along with the other girls on the show as well, but if I had to pick anyone to have an on-screen romance with, it'd be Ash. She's fantastic."

Discussing how Mark and Kate's attraction has developed, the actor explained: "Mark first met Kate during the 'Who Pushed P.R?' investigation. He thought she was pretty cute from the moment she walked in to make a statement, but he obviously kept his mind on the job.

"Mark's a cop and Kate hasn't known much about him. He's also a fair bit older than her and is very focused on his work. He wanted something to happen, but at the same time, he's been a bit wary starting up with Kate because of her ties to Paul and Declan."

McGregor was originally recruited as a guest cast member before producers decided to keep him in Ramsay Street for a longer stint. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
