Scene of the Week – 24-28 Aug 2015

For such a big week, our choice for scene wasn’t the stunt itself, but rather the powerful, poignant moment where Karl broke the truth to a horrified Sonya. It was all the more powerful coming from Karl, close friend and neighbour, and Alan Fletcher really sold the reluctant father figure being forced to be professional and not sugarcoat Toadie’s prognosis. Eve Morey, as usual, stole the show. Eve truly gets her character and infuses with a sense of reality and knows how to play every scene and situation. There was no hysterics – because that’s not who Sonya is. What she did, with little dialogue entirely on reaction alone – was show us Sonya’s quiet devastation. Despite her attempt to hold everything together, it was clear the news was breaking Sonya inside. Another powerful scene from one of Neighbours’ strongest ever actresses.
