Dean Geyer didn’t get a record contract but you can now see him on Neighbours.
For those who care, and I must confess I don’t, Dean Geyer will be on Neighbours from this week.
Neighbours has already had reality tv “stars” on the show – all male I note. Blair Donahue (BB), and Dan O’Connor(Aust Idol) both had fairly long stints
I thought Dean was meant to be a singer? However he may be able to channel that into his role on Ramsey Street where he plays a young musician Ty Harper.
TV Week has an offline article here are some snippets:
- He hopes to be on Neighbours a long time.
- His first scene is him playing in his band in a pub.
- Neighbours has turned into a musical as he will be seen singing in quite a few scenes.
- Music industry is his main passion. There’s talk of a new album coming out towards the end of the year.
- He has had acting lessons for the role, also he had to lose the South African accent for the role.
- He still lives at home with his family.
- He is still seeing Lisa Origliasso of the Veronicas. She is currently in LA.
I am surprised he is taking the Neighbours option, when on Idol I thought he had huge appeal for the teen girl, and I thought he would try and crack the US Evangelical Christian music market.
