WATCH: Ryan Thomas Landed Neighbours Role As His Brother Adam Turned It Down

WATCH: Ryan Thomas Landed Neighbours Role As His Brother Adam Turned It Down

Ryan Thomas ditched the Weatherfield cobbles in favour of the sunny Neighbours set, landing a new role on the Australian soap as mysterious Rafael Humphrey.

And while he's been impressing adoring viewers with his portrayal of the character, things could have worked out very differently.

Appearing on Friday's instalment of Lorraine, the soap star revealed that another very familiar face could have been cast as the role instead of Ryan...

Keeping it in the family, then!

The actor explained how his brother Adam Thomas was also approached by the programme's producers for the same role, but he had to turn it down as he was still in British soap Emmerdale.

Ryan left his role as Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street two years ago, in search of 'new experiences and new adventures', although a potential return has been left open for the builder.

Lorraine airs on weekdays at 8.30am on ITV.
