Jane Badler has been cast in a guest role on Neighbours. Jane played the rodent-eating alien, Diana, in 1983 cult show ‘V’.
American actor and singer Badler, who has lived in Melbourne for the past 20 years, will play new super-bitch Diana Marshall, a character that could rival the villainous alien Diana.
Five tell us Badler starts filming next week at the Fremantle sets of Neighbours and will be on-air in late June in Australia and later in the year in the UK. Five tell us there are no rodents involved in Badler’s scenes….yet.
Badler isn’t a stranger to soap opera, back in 1986 she had a recurring role in CBS serial Falcon Crest based around a vineyard.
Neighbours is shown on Five at 1.45pm and 5.30pm every weekday, with a Saturday omnibus and weekday catch-up episodes on Fiver.
