List of Neighbours characters (2020)
Neighbours is an Australian television soap opera. It was first broadcast on 18 March 1985 and airs on digital channel 10 Peach. The following is a list of characters that first appear in the show in 2020, by order of first appearance. All characters are introduced by the show's executive producer Jason Herbison. Lisa Rowsthorn and Zenin Alexio will be introduced towards the end of January.
Lisa Rowsthorn, played by Jane Allsop, made her first appearance on 20 January 2020. Details of Allsop's casting as Lisa were announced on 13 January. The character is the mother of Hendrix Greyson (Benny Turland), and arrives in Erinsborough to help with his rebellious behaviour, which resulted in him stealing a nude photo of his stepmother Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly). Hendrix finds his mother is "surprisingly reasonable and understanding" about the incident, while Hendrix's father Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards) fears for his relationship with his son, knowing that Lisa is "controlling". Daniel Kilkelly of Digital Spy reported that Lisa's introduction would also test Pierce and Chloe's marriage, as she asks Pierce to father another child with her.
Zenin Alexio, played by Axle Whitehead, will make his first appearance on 31 January 2020. Whitehead's casting was reported in the 18–24 January 2020 issue of Inside Soap. He joins the cast for a short stint as "a shady looking guy" who watches Yashvi Rebecchi (Olivia Junkeer) and Ned Willis (Ben Hall) in the local café, leading to speculation about his identity and interest in the couple.
