Alan Dale returns to the Neighbours set 25 years after Jim Robinson's death

Hollywood is full of ex-Neighbours stars who have gone international, including Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, Margot Robbie and of course Alan Dale.

Alan played Jim Robinson from 1985 to 1993 but didn’t leave the show on the best terms, and hasn’t been shy about making his opinion known in the years since.

But he seems to have put all that behind him with a visit to the set and a selfie with his former on-screen son.

Stefan Dennis played Paul Robinson during Alan’s run, and while he left around the same time in the early ’90s, Paul returned almost 15 years ago and is still going strong.

“Father and son back together st the pub. Same same but slightly older… the pub’s held up pretty well don’t you think? #Neighbours # Dynasty” Stefan said.

And Alan posted the same snap on his own Twitter feed with a similar caption: “Back on set at ‘Neighbours’ with Stef after 25 years away.#Neighbours, #Dynasty.

He’d previously shared a picture of the two of them plus Stefan’s wife Gail at a Victoria winery.

It’s a bit of a surprise to see Alan on that Erinsborough set, given how vocal he’s been about the show since he fell out with a producer way back when.

“It was sweet and the people I worked with were sweet, most of them,” Alan said in 2008 of his time on Neighbours.

“But the producers were greedy and nasty. There are many examples of the things these people did and, as far as I know, are still doing.

“When you live in a country where there is not much else to do as an actor, there isn’t much choice but to put up with it. But I used to fight them all the time, which is one of the reasons we parted company.”

And even a couple of years ago Alan still hadn’t quite let it go despite all his success in the years since, saying: “I’m happy to be out of it – look at my career.”

Even if his visit does suggest he’s beginning to let things slide, it’ll be tricky for Jim Robinson to return, as the character died of a heart attack.
