Real Housewives of Melbourne star Gina Liano joins the cast of Neighbours!

Gina Liano from The Real Housewives of Melbourne starts filming a guest spot of Neighbours today.

Gina will play Mary Smith, the adopted mother of Olympia Valance’s character Paige. It turns out that Gina has known Olympia all her life and is a close family friend.

She has never acted before but casting directors were impressed by a screen test she did and they signed her up straight away.

“I’m thrilled, I think it will be a lot of fun,” she said. “It’s a new experience, I love a challenge and I’m really looking forward to working with Olympia and the rest of the crew down there on the Neighbours set.”

Gina’s now famous look – big hair and makeup – will not be altered.

“They said to me they are very respectful of the character that I am,” she said. “One of the reasons they chose me was because of who I am, because of my character. They are not really wanting to me to change it up too much. You won’t see me without makeup.”

It turns out that Liano has known Olympia Valance all her life and is a close family friend.

And it doesn’t stop there with Gina – she has filmed a pilot for Foxtel for a Judge Gina type show that was produced by Eddie McGuire’s production company McGuire Media.
