Russell Brand’s Neighbours script ‘went out the window’ for guest spot

Russell Brand’s "script went out the window" for his ‘Neighbours’ cameo.

The 45-year-old comedian is set to make a guest appearance on the Australian soap next week, and actor Ryan Moloney – who plays Jarrod ‘Toadie’ Rebecchi – admitted his one-time co-star delivered "his own brilliant monologue" during the shoot.

He told Inside Soap magazine: "Oh my God – what an experience! He was so funny and such a nice person.

"The script went out the window, and Russell did his own brilliant monologue word-perfect on the first go, so my expression of hearing it for the first time is absolutely genuine!"

Ryan – whose character Toadie gets some words of advice from Russell at the Erinsborough Writers’ Festival – also revealed how the guest star was "incredibly generous" and happy to take photos with the cast and crew.

He added: "He was incredibly generous with everyone on set.

"Russell hung around for photographs and there was a queue lined up – he really gave everyone his undivided attention."

The cameo appearance was filmed back in March while Russell was on tour in Australia.

During his scene with the comedian, Toadie says: "You’re Russell Brand! What are you doing here?"

Russell replies: "Touring the world, spreading the message – life, love, limitless. I’m a writer and I enjoy festivities … synchronicity."

And then Toadie responds: "That’s awesome."

Jason Herbison, the executive producer of ‘Neighbours’, revealed earlier this year that the show’s bosses had invited Russell to the set after discovering he was a huge fan of the soap.

Speaking back in March, he explained: "As it turned out, we were filming an upcoming storyline that gave an organic reason for him to pass through Ramsay Street and we’re not just about his comedic talent – his literary genius plays a huge part."
