The life of neighbors Corey – career, television role and fate of the character

Neighbors star Laurence Boxhall caused a stir after hitting screens recently.

Born in England before emigrating down as a teenager, the actor made his show debut last month while filming the Aussie soap in London.

Laurence plays villainous Corey Smythe-Jones, who sabotages Harlow Robinson’s life ever since he met.

After tracking Harlow (Jemma Donovan) to Erinsborough, the new resident of Ramsay Street has isolated Harlow from her loved ones in an effort to recruit her into the cult of the Restoration Order.

Already unmasked as a villain by Neighbors fans, Corey will continue to turn Harlow’s support system against her – but who is Laurence Boxhall? And, where have we seen it before?

Secret career

Additionally, he has recorded a number of audiobooks during Australia’s coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Posting on her Facebook page in September, Laurence also revealed her love for the craft, writing, “I have brain audiobooks.”

Laurence’s Neighbors character Corey plays a pretty dangerous game and in recent scenes his attempts to lead Harlow into the Order have grown bolder.

After giving a suspicious flash drive to his Order contact and making his own copy, a manipulator Corey encourages Harlow to confess his feelings for Ned despite his relationship with Amy.

The move will have Neighbors fans questioning the cult member’s endgame as Corey sinks deeper into Harlow’s life.

Could Harlow be in danger?

Neighbors broadcast on Channel 5.
