    Neighbours star Ben Turland responds to Hendrix Greyson's huge new storyline
    Hendrix received some worrying news.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...-health-story/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours star Ben Turland has spoken about Hendrix Greyson's big new storyline for the first time.

    Thursday's UK episode (May 5) saw Hendrix receive the news that he has a life-threatening lung condition.

    Dr Sian Caton ? played by former Home and Away star Esther Anderson ? told Hendrix that he has an autoimmune disease called sarcoidosis, which has attacked his lungs and caused his recent coughing.

    This has already developed into a condition called pulmonary fibrosis. Hendrix now needs a lung transplant in order to survive.

    Speaking to Digital Spy about the emotional plot, Ben explained: "I was taken into the office and told that they wanted to do this storyline and it was going to be quite big.

    "I was honoured to take it on, and it's been really good to explore it with everybody.

    "Hendrix's health issues were triggered by the fire at Erinsborough High, when he saved Mackenzie. This brought on the pulmonary fibrosis.

    "It's been a slow approach to the story since then, but now we really get into it. It's been a good challenge."

    In the coming days, viewers will see how Hendrix's relationship with Mackenzie is affected by the news. Hendrix will also confide in other characters, including the Kennedys, Chloe Brennan and David Tanaka.

    Ben continued: "Hendrix has spent the past few months really helping out Mackenzie a fair bit. For Hendrix, that's what he wants to do ? just be there for Mackenzie.

    "It's been nice to now sit down and work with Georgie [Stone, who plays Mackenzie], figuring out how they'd cope with something like this alongside their friends and families.

    "It's been nice to explore a different side of their love, but also the fear and worry they feel over Hendrix's condition.

    "Hendrix still definitely has a chance. He's been told that he has to have a lung transplant to survive, but it's definitely a solid chance and it's a rollercoaster for him."

    The story takes another turn next week, when the Rodwell family move onto Ramsay Street.

    This proves to be triggering for Hendrix, as Sadie Rodwell started the fire alongside her friend Aubrey Laing.

    Ben said: "Hendrix doesn't quite know how he's going to act when the Rodwells move in. He wants to live life with Mackenzie quite normally. Even though he's got this sickness, he doesn't want to think about it.

    "But because Sadie was one of the people who caused his sickness and she has just moved next door, he can't really escape it. Every time he sees them, it reminds him of his illness and what's happened to him.

    "It's a big battle in Hendrix's head to figure out how he's going to act ? and if he can go on living his normal life with this sickness and the reminder of what has happened."

    Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 and streams on My5. In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and streams on 10 Play.

    Bit dramatic for a show about to end.

    What wih Kyle's cancer still fairly fresh, couldn't they have eased off on the major disease angles for a while?

    Neighbours boss writes special episode for Hendrix Greyson's storyline
    It airs next week.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...eyson-episode/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours' executive producer Jason Herbison has written a special episode for Hendrix Greyson's big new storyline.

    The show's boss penned the script for the Friday, May 20 edition of the soap, which sees Hendrix Greyson and his girlfriend Mackenzie Hargreaves take centre stage.

    The moving episode focuses entirely on Hendrix's illness storyline as he pays a visit to his dad Pierce, mum Lisa, sister Alana and half-sister Maeve.

    Unusually, there are no scenes in the usual Ramsay Street or Erinsborough locations, as Hendrix's family all live in Sydney.

    Reflecting the smaller cast and special nature of the episode, it also airs without the Neighbours opening titles.

    Ben Turland, who plays Hendrix, told Digital Spy: "It was so much fun to film. It was great to travel to Sydney with the cast and crew, shooting in all of the different locations.

    "It was a pretty tough shoot, as we didn't have the best weather. But we got to shoot in a lot of different locations where Hendrix grew up, as well as his parents' homes.

    "We see a lot of the places where Hendrix would go to if he was scared as a little kid ? places that he felt comfortable.

    "Taking Mackenzie to all of those spots is really special. It's really nice for Hendrix to be in those places with the girl that he loves. It's so important to him and it tells us a lot about Hendrix as a character."

    Praising Neighbours' recent increase in location filming for its final season, Ben added: "It brings new elements and a new energy. It's quite exciting trying out new things and new locations, and seeing how our characters react in these places.

    "It's been really fun ? although the mornings get earlier!"

    Although Jason Herbison is showrunner of Neighbours, he also occasionally writes milestone episodes for the soap ? including the show's first-ever three-hander episode in 2015 and Sonya Rebecchi's exit in 2019.

    Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 and streams on My5. In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and streams on 10 Play.

    Neighbours reveals who'll be playing Hendrix Greyson's sister Alana
    There are big scenes ahead for Hendrix and his family.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...greyson-alana/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours has confirmed casting details for Hendrix Greyson's sister Alana.

    Alana will finally make an appearance next week as part of Hendrix's big new storyline.

    Next week's episodes see Hendrix realise that he'll have to tell his family that he has been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.

    Hendrix heads to see his dad Pierce, mum Lisa and sister Alana in Sydney, with moral support from his girlfriend Mackenzie Hargreaves.

    He initially holds back from telling his family the truth, as he's frustrated with everyone treating him differently back in Erinsborough.

    However, it's Alana who ultimately realises that Hendrix is behaving strangely, which forces him to explain that he's seriously ill and needs a lung transplant.

    Molly Broadstock has been cast in the role of Alana. The show newcomer is best known for playing Bella in Australian comedy-drama series Mustangs FC.

    Ben Turland, who plays Hendrix, told Digital Spy: "Molly has been great. Finding the love between a brother and sister has been really fun to explore.

    "We'll see how Hendrix acts as a big brother. He feels quite guilty that he hasn't been there for his sister.

    "It's been really good and Molly is great. We connected and established this sibling relationship, especially as we see the two characters in their homes in Sydney.

    "They weren't just sets ? we got to be in some real-life homes and it felt like we were a family."

    Hendrix's half-sister ? Lisa's toddler daughter Maeve ? will also briefly feature in the episode, played by Beatrix Van Vliet.

    Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 and streams on My5. In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and streams on 10 Play.

    Neighbours star Ben Turland confirms proposal in Hendrix's storyline
    "It's very much spur of the moment."

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...yson-proposal/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours star Ben Turland has confirmed that a proposal is on the cards for his character Hendrix Greyson and girlfriend Mackenzie Hargreaves in an emotional episode airing next week.

    A recent storyline for Hendrix revealed he was diagnosed with a lung condition called pulmonary fibrosis, which developed after the fire at Erinsborough high school. Due to limited treatment options, he is told that he must undergo a lung transplant within the next three years in order to save his life.

    Hendrix ponders his future after the shock diagnosis before he and Mackenzie decide to take a stress-free trip to Sydney and visit his family. One thing he doesn't plan on discussing with his family, though? His illness.

    His sister Alana, however, notices his odd behaviour, which in turn causes the truth to come to light after all. With the support of his loved ones, Hendrix will then make the ultimate romantic gesture and asks Mackenzie to marry him!

    Speaking about the big storyline to Inside Soap, Turland said of the proposal: "It's very much spur of the moment. Mackenzie has opened Hendrix's eyes to a different way of thinking. She makes his life a little less chaotic, and more wholesome.

    "Hendrix starts to wonder what he wants in life and who he wants to be a round. It makes sense to him, so he proposes! He doesn't even have a ring."

    The actor also opened up about Mackenzie's reaction to the shock question, but doesn't give any indication of what her answer will be. "I mean, she's not expecting it! They're young and with everything going on, it comes out of nowhere. But Hendrix knows what he wants, and he wants to get married..." he teased.

    Before proposing, Hendrix takes Mackenzie to some of the important locations from his childhood. Speaking about those touching scenes, Turland told Digital Spy: "Taking Mackenzie to all of those spots is really special. It's really nice for Hendrix to be in those places with the girl that he loves. It's so important to him and it tells us a lot about Hendrix as a character."

    So, do we need to buy a hat? We'll have to tune in to find out!

    Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 and streams on My5. In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach and streams on 10 Play.

    SPOILER ALERT!

    Following on from the previous DS article/post, although it has not been confirmed as yet, they filmed a Hendrix/Mackenzie wedding back in March. From memory, I think it was mentioned that they filmed it in the grounds of Melbourne Zoo??

    Neighbours confirms outcome of Hendrix Greyson's big proposal
    Will Mackenzie agree to marry him?

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...posal-outcome/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours has confirmed the aftermath of Hendrix Greyson's huge proposal after he asks his girlfriend Mackenzie Hargreaves to marry him.

    Hendrix (Ben Turland) was recently diagnosed with a serious lung condition called pulmonary fibrosis, which he developed after being caught up in the fire at Erinsborough high school. He's been informed that he will need to undergo a lung transplant within the next three years in order to live.

    This week, he and Mackenzie (Georgie Stone) decide to take a trip to Sydney to visit Hendrix's family ? including his dad Pierce ? and, despite not planning on sharing the news with them, Hendrix ends up opening up about his diagnosis when his sister Alana notices that he is acting oddly.

    He then reveals all, and, with his health news out in the open, Hendrix takes stock of his life and realises just how much Mackenzie means to him, so he pops the question to her.

    Next week, the outcome of the proposal will be revealed as a stunned but excited Mackenzie accepts Hendrix's proposal and agrees to marry him.

    Hendrix's family couldn't be happier about the news and he leaves Sydney feeling closer to them all than ever.

    When they get back to Ramsay Street, Hendrix and Mackenzie share their engagement news with their friends and neighbours and soak up all the excitement.

    Later in the week, an engagement party is thrown for the couple and the whole street comes together to celebrate their happy news.

    Hendrix is having a fantastic time with his loved ones and is able to enjoy not thinking about his illness ? when he suddenly gets the phone call of a lifetime. But what big news is Hendrix about to receive?

    Actor Ben, who plays Hendrix, previously revealed that his character's proposal is "very much spur of the moment" and that Mackenzie makes Hendrix's "a little less chaotic, and more wholesome".

    "She's not expecting it!" he said of Mackenzie's reaction to the big question while speaking to Inside Soap. "They're young and with everything going on, it comes out of nowhere. But Hendrix knows what he wants, and he wants to get married..."

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, May 23 and Friday, May 27 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Monday, June 20 and Wednesday, June 22 on 10 Peach (Australia).
