Eddie McGuire’s 12-year-old son Xander is following in his famous Father’s footsteps and has scored himself a role on Neighbours.
Xander will play Charlie Hoyland in the show, who is the son of Carla Bonner’s returning character Steph Scully.
There have been whispers that Eddie may have had a helping hand in getting Xander the role, to which he strongly denies. He told The Herald Sun that he took Xander to the screen test but didn’t have any further input.
‘I’m not going to be a stage dad. He did all this on his own and on merit,’ he explained.
Xander will start filming this week for scenes to be aired early next year.
