Neighbours star Rob Mills has confirmed that he has filmed a surprise return for his character Finn Kelly, who was killed on-screen in 2020 after he hit his head and drowned.

But Finn isn’t being brought back from the dead, as his reappearance will actually be part of a storyline in which Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) uses a visualisation technique in order to come to terms with the ordeal she endured thanks to Finn.

Actor Rob told Australian newspaper The Herald Sun that he will be reprising his role in Australia from March 2, revealing that this is only a brief stint.

“It’s just a short resurrection, no witchcraft involved,” he said (quotes via Daily Mail). “It was so good, the way it was written and shot. Finn has some unfinished business.”

The actor added that being back on set after his previous departure was “weird” but said that he was delighted to be reunited with the soap’s cast and crew again.

“It was weird to be back on set but also good to see their happy faces and I love working with the cast and crew,” he said. “I’m just rapt they have continued filming the whole way through. I love that my character has never really left and it has haunted people.”

Finn’s death will begin to be revisited on Australian screens this week, as Olivia Bell (Alyce Platt) makes a return. Olivia betrayed the trust of Susan and her husband Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher) last summer when she used information she had got from them to write a tell-all book about Finn’s crimes, without their prior knowledge or consent.

But when Olivia returns, she tells Susan that she now wants to write a ‘more truthful’ account of what happened and asks to speak to her again about her experiences with Finn. Despite Karl’s concerns about what revisiting her trauma could do to Susan, she is adamant that she wants to share the truth.

Susan will later begin using visualisation techniques in order to get closure over her ordeal with Finn, causing her to ‘see’ Finn, which is why actor Rob has been filming new material as his character.

Will seeing Finn again help Susan with her recovery or just cause her more distress?

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and weekdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
