Interview: Ryan Moloney (Jarrod “Toadfish” Rebecchi), NEIGHBOURS

Ryan Moloney is one of the longest serving cast members on Neighbours. He has grown up on the show, playing one of the show’s most popular characters, Jarrod “Toadfish” Rebecchi. Ryan made his first appearance on the show as a 16 year old in 1995.

When I was in Melbourne, I had the pleasure of catching up with Ryan. He talked about his first day on set, his most memorable and embarrassing moments, if he’s ever going to leave the show, wild nights, what’s in store for Toady, his admiration for his co-star Eve Morey (Sonya), and why he’d like to play Paul Robinson, amongst other things.

A lot has happened to Toady over the years, below are 3 of his big life changing moments.

Getting The Chop
For many years Toady was known for his ponytail, the day it was cut was a very big deal. Lou Carpenter had the pleasure of chopping it off!

Until Death Do We Part
When Toady married Dee it was both the happiest and saddest day of his life (fan video):

The Hero Gets Shot
Guy Sykes was holding some of the residents of Ramsay Street hostage, Toady tried to save the day and ended up getting shot:

Bonus video:
I had to include this one, just because Ryan mentioned that the wrestling storyline is his favourite (unfortunately I couldn’t find the fight, but here he is in costume as LawMan. Toady and Conor dressed as wrestlers to advertise the bikini store – as you do!)

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
