Actress Olympia Valance has hinted a return to soap, Neighbours.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Friday, the 26-year-old said she might return to the beloved show for the 35th anniversary season of the series.
Playing Paige Smith on the series, Olympia reflected on her breakthrough role: ‘I felt by the end of Neighbours, whatever I could do, I did,’ she said.

Explaining her reasons for leaving the show, she added: ‘I never wanted to resent the place; I love it too much,’ before hinting she might be part of the show’s line-up.
‘With the 35 years of Neighbours coming up soon…maybe I’ll ask to come back,’ she said, with it not confirmed if she will reprise her role.

Recently, the burnette beauty has been appearing on Channel Ten’s Dancing With the Stars reboot.
In March, Olympia spoke to TV Week magazine about the gruelling rehearsals with her dance partner, Jarryd Byrne, for the show.
‘My body has never looked so good and I’ve never been this fit,’ Olympia said.
‘I train regularly, but this has just taken me to another level.’

She added: ‘We [she and dance partner Jarryd] train and rehearse five hours a day, so it’s a lot of crazy cardio and I’m sore every day, but it’s paying off.’
Last September, Olympia revealed she is relishing the opportunity to play glamorous WAG Tahlia Woods on Playing For Keeps.
The actress told NW magazine she was only too happy to leave good girl Paige behind in order to play the raunchy brunette.
‘As much as I loved Neighbours, it’s great going from a G rating to an M rating,’ the brunette beauty admitted.
