Richard Huggett, star of Neighbours, spoke to Digital Spy about the impact of Glen Donnelly’s secret being revealed.
The show on Channel 5 on Tuesday finished with a shocking revelation, as Glen’s brother Paul Robinson revealed his secret link to Kiri Durant.
Glen has been keeping quiet about how he is Kiri’s long-lost father for the past few weeks.
When Nicolette Stone and private detective John Wong presented Paul with the information he needed to throw a spanner in the works, the truth was ultimately revealed.
Speaking to Digital Spy about the repercussions, Richard laughed: “Glen would like to kill Paul if he could! For Glen, that’s it – that’s the end of their relationship as brothers.
“I don’t think there’s anything Paul could do to fix it now. In Glen’s eyes, it’s over. I don’t think he can forgive him for this one.”
On Kiri’s response, Richard continued: “She’s just in complete shock and she wants nothing to do with Glen. Kiri is stunned that she has been lied to by her mother for her whole life – and that her father Alan never knew.
“I think there is a chance that Glen and Kiri can start getting along again. There will be, but it’ll just take time to move on and for Kiri to accept Glen.
“I don’t think she’ll want a father as such, because she’s already got one, but she’ll want a friend instead.
“Glen definitely wanted to tell Kiri the truth before now, but he just knew the impact it would have. I don’t think he ever would have told her if Paul hadn’t got involved.”
Richard also discussed filming the sequences with Kiri’s co-star Gemma Bird Matheson.
He laughed: “The early part of the story has been really odd to play, with Glen being so secretive, but I have enjoyed it.
“Gemma is great to work with. She’s a lot of fun and she’s an amazingly talented actress. She’s also a writer and a producer, so she does it all.”
