'Neighbours' star Jordy Lucas eyes US roles after show exit

By
Neighbours star Jordy Lucas has confirmed that she is hoping to pursue US roles following her recent departure from the soap.

The 20-year-old actress filmed her final scenes as Summer Hoyland last month and will make her on-screen exit in early 2013.

Speaking in a new interview with TV Week, Lucas revealed that her US ambitions were the main factor behind her decision to leave Ramsay Street.

She commented: "I think I'm at the perfect age. Margot Robbie's a good example - she went over at 20 and it just felt like it was the perfect time for her. I think I'm at the age now where I can also go over there and give it a really good shot."

Lucas admitted that she will particularly miss working with Jackie Woodburne and Alan Fletcher, who play Susan and Karl Kennedy.

She said: "I'll really miss Jackie and Fletch. Jackie's the funniest, most down-to-earth woman, and Fletch looked after us all so well. I'll miss everyone - the whole group."

Neighbours airs weekdays at 6.30pm on Eleven in Australia, and weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 in the UK. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
