A Knight to Remember!
Nicola’s a fair maiden, but she says Jesse the DragonHeart is…
NEIGHBOURS regulars Nicola Charles and Jesse Spencer relish working in a modern soap set in suburbia, but they both also harbor a desire to work in period drama.
Not surprisingly, there were full of enthusiasm when taking part in a photo shoot inspired by the new adventure film DragonHeart.
Draped in the pre-medieval costume worn by Dina Meyer in the film, Nicola says with a laugh: “I’m living out every teenage girl’s fantasy… I’ve got Jesse Spencer in a pair of tights!”
Asked if she has run into any “dragons” on the Neighbours set, Nicola adds: “No, not at all. There are no real-life dragons working on Neighbours. We all get on incredibly well.”
Jesse, in the costume worn by Dennis Quaid, reveals ambitions to act in a major film.
“We play average sort of characters on Neighbours and love doing that, but it would be great to do a film where I got into period costume,” he says.
DragonHeart features Dennis Quaid as Bowen, a knight who teams up with a talking dragon, Draco, to save the world.
