Speaking to TV Tonight, Jones revealed she's very much excited to return to the popular Australian TV show.
“I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to return to Neighbours. As an actor, the best thing you can be is a working actor. I’ve done a lot of guest roles but usually very short-lived, so this has been lovely to come back for an extended period and really get my teeth into a part,” she said.
Producer of the Soapie Jason Herbison told the site: “Annie is a beloved star from the golden era of Neighbours and we are honoured to have her back on the show. She had a very interesting take on what her character Jane might be up to nowadays and we incorporated it into the storyline. There’s warmth and nostalgia yet also a very fascinating character journey.”
Meanwhile, old-school cast-mate Stefan Dennis, who plays the controversial Paul Robinson is alos happy to welcome Jones with open arms onset.
“This is going to sound terribly gushy, but Annie is just the same as she was on the show 30 years ago, kind, funny and just a beautiful person to be around. I’ve loved having her back on set.”
The 53-year-old has returned to the Melbourne-based set for brief appearances on the 20th and 30th Anniversary specials.
You can catch Jones on your screens when the reunion episodes air in April.
