Trans actor to appear on Neighbours

Georgie Stone, who is a trans actress and advocate for gender diverse youth, will be the first transgender character in Neighbours, the long-running Australian TV soap opera. Georgie, who is 18, suggested the idea for introducing a trans character to the producers of the programme. A great deal of preparation and meetings were involved to ensure that the scripts “accurately integrated parts of her life story” into her character. She has previously starred in other popular Australian programmes.
