Bonnie Anderson, the former actress of Neighbours, has announced that she and her partner, Sam Morrison, are engaged.
Bonnie proudly held up her left hand to show off her new ring in a photo of herself and Sam smiling in the sunshine, with Bonnie proudly holding up her left hand to show off her new ring. The actress and singer, who played Bea Nilsson in Neighbours, shared her excitement over the big news on Instagram.
“I CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT I’M SEEING!!! My dearest friend proposed to me and asked me to marry him! I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you, my love! “she wrote in the caption.
Sam expressed his happiness on their engagement on Instagram, posting a similar shot with the caption: “I couldn’t be more pleased. More than everything, I adore this girl. Let’s spend the rest of our lives doing things together.”
It’s unclear how long the couple has been dating, but they made their relationship public in November 2021.
Bonnie has received congratulations messages from her old Neighbours co-stars, with David Tanaka’s Takaya Honda writing: “Congrats Bon Bon!” and Harlow Robinson’s Jemma Donovan writing: “Congrats Bon!!”
Scott McGregor (Mark Brennan), Georgie Stone (Mackenzie Hargreaves), Ben Hall (Ned Willis), April Rose Pengilly (Chloe Brennan), and Jacinta Stapleton (Chloe Brennan) all expressed their delight (Amy Greenwood).
Bonnie initially appeared on Neighbours in 2018 as Bea, and was introduced as Elly Conway’s estranged half-sister (Jodi Anasta). Her boyfriend Patrick was discovered to be the wicked Finn Kelly (Rob Mills), who had previously placed Bea’s aunt Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) in the hospital, and she was soon embroiled in a major dramatic narrative.
She left Ramsay Street in 2021, having struck up a friendship with the new Sheila Canning and decided to go on a road trip with her.
Bonnie said she felt she had “reached a place where I could take everything on board and was ready to continue soaring elsewhere” after her departure, and that she would “definitely” consider revisiting her role in the future.
If the actress wants to return, she’ll have to move quickly, as Neighbours will be cancelled this summer after 37 years on the air due to financial concerns.
