Olympia Valance spoke to producers about her fate on 'Neighbours' because she was worried they'd kill her off now that she's landed various international contracts
Olympia Valance has "begged" bosses not to kill off her character Paige Smith in 'Neighbours'.
The 23-year-old actress may be busy trotting around the globe picking up international deals in both acting and modelling, but she's adamant her heart will always belong to Ramsay Street.
Speaking to the Herald Sun newspaper, she said: "I begged the producers not to kill me and they've promised not to. I've always said I might want a little break... or go away for a few months, but God, please don't take away my character because I might want to come back."
The brunette beauty, who first joined the soap in 2014, is keen to take a short break from the long-running show once her three-year contract comes to an end early next year as she's desperate to crack Hollywood.
She said: "I've got to give it a go. I would hate to have that regret. It'll be when my contract is over. I have a three-year contract, so probably in just over a year and a half."
Meanwhile, Olympia is keen to persuade her half-sister Holly Candy to reprise her role as Felicity 'Flick' Scully, who she portrayed between 1999 and 2002, in the well-loved soap.
She said recently: "Holly isn't completely against doing it. Our characters aren't related in any way, but Steph Scully is on the show. Who knows, it could happen."
But Olympia - who shares the same father Rajko Vukadinović as her sibling - doesn't think Holly will make a return any time soon as she now lives in London with her husband Nick and their two-year-old son Luka.
