Hollywood megastar Margot Robbie will star in the soap opera’s historical conclusion.
The 32-year-old, who played Donna Freedman from 2008 to 2011, filmed the Zoom performance shortly after filming wrapped on June 10.
Fellow Australians Delta Goodrem, Jesse Spencer, Holly Valance, Carla Bonner, Natalie Imbruglia and Kym Valentine, who all got their start on the show, will all return for the finale.

“Everyone who worked on the soap was adamant that ‘Neighbours’ would end on a real high and when they shook hands with Margot she immediately said ‘yes,'” a source told The Sun.
“There’s no way she wouldn’t be part of the historic grand finale as she has always spoken so lovingly about her time with the soap and how it helped launch her film career.
“Unfortunately, she was unable to come to Australia to film, but has recorded a special clip that will be shown in the grand finale.”

Margot instead sent 37 bottles of champagne to the set — one for each year the show was on TV.
The show’s executive producer Jason Herbison revealed that Robbie had sent a gift containing expensive bubbles.
The cast toasted after filming wrapped on the very last day of production of the series.

Alan Fletcher, April Rose Pengilly and Emerald Chan were among the cast to thank Robbie on Instagram for the thoughtful gift.
Robbie rose to fame on the Australian soap opera playing aspiring fashion designer Donna Freedman before trading Melbourne for Hollywood.
She previously credited the show, saying it was “brilliant training” for her Hollywood career and admitted she was never able to learn lines at the speed she was used to during her soap days.

But she can’t believe how quickly she got through her scripts during her time on series drama.
She said, “I’ve always said that after walking off a soap, everything would be easy.”
“It was a brilliant training ground. I used to sit down in the morning with 60 pages on my lap and just fly through it, read it once. I have it. I don’t think I could do that now.’

The ‘Birds of Prey’ star is also thankful for working on a soap opera, as this stint has made her more “conscious” of other departments when she’s in a movie or watching TV.
She said, “I think the biggest thing about working on a soap opera and working with a multi-camera scenario was being aware of every other department and working within the larger machine.”
The finale will be broadcast in both Australia and the UK on Friday.
