From Father to Father-in-Law

Today I found another actor who's been on both Home and Away and Neighbours.

On my Neighbours episodes today, Josh Willis's grandfather came back to town.  He's Brad's father and Terese's stepfather. He looked really familiar to me, so when the show ended, I found his name and Googled.

Terence Donovan. He played Al Simpson on Home and Away. I couldn't remember who that was at first. Then I remembered.  He was Sophie's abusive father. Sophie was played by Rebekah Elmaloglou, and now Elmaloglou is Terese on Neighbours.  I thought that was pretty funny.

Edited to add (a few minutes later) Did some more Googling and learned Terence Donovan is Jason Donovan's Daddy!  Wow! My mind is spinning. I love discovering fun pieces of trivia like that.
