Why Margot Robbie’s cameo in the Neighbours finale was reduced to a short pre-recorded video message

Margot Robbie is arguably one of the most famous faces to come out of Australian soap Neighbours.

So some fans may have been disappointed that her appearance as Donna Freedman on the show’s finale this week was just a 14-second pre-recorded video message.

The 32-year-old did the best that she could, given that she’s currently busy filming the Barbie movie.

Margot plays the titular character in the big screen adaptation of the famous doll.

She stars alongside Ryan Gosling in the comedy, which is set to be released on July 31, 2023.

Despite her busy schedule, Margot still made time for a quick cameo on the Neighbours finale.

The finale centered around Toadie’s (Ryan Moloney) wedding to Melanie (Lucinda Cowden).

Many familiar faces reunited for the picturesque lakeside ceremony and street party afterwards, while other pals – including Margot’s Donna Freedman – sent their well wishes in sweet video messages to mark the big day. 

‘Have an amazing wedding day, Toadie,’ Margot gushed in her video message.

‘The years living on Ramsay Street were honesty some of the best of my entire life,’ she added.

Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, Jason Donovan, Natalie Imbruglia and Holly Valance are among the other celebrities who returned to Neighbours to appear in the send-off of the Melbourne-based drama that helped launch their careers in acting and music. 

Imbruglia and Valance filmed a scene together from the UK, which saw them bump into each other at a park before discovering that they both once lived on Ramsay Street.

Neighbours was once a major hit in Australia and a bigger success in Britain, but has fallen victim to waning ratings in recent years.
