Neighbours new boy's accent drama
Jordan Smith moved to Australia from Scotland as a teenager
Neighbours newcomer Jordan Smith had to have his character's back story rejigged because producers were so thrown by his accent.
Jordan, who plays Paul Robinson's son Andrew, moved to Australia from Scotland as a teenager.
A spokeswoman for Five confirmed that the character was initially meant to have been brought up in Brazil "but the Scottish accent changed that".
She added: "The character is well travelled and did live in Brazil but wasn't born there."
Jordan said: "The producers have been fantastic in accommodating my accent. I have had to refine it so the other cast members and audience can understand me. Although I still get that 'what the hell did he just say?' about every second scene."
The character first appeared in 1991 as the baby of Paul (Stefan Dennis) and Christina Robinson (Gayle Blakeney). The family moved to Brazil while Paul was on the run after framing his brother-in-law for fraud.
