Mischa Barton as Reece Sinclair

According to the sources, the latest storyline introduces Reece Sinclair, played by Mischa Barton, who made a dazzling entrance at Lassiter’s Hotel with shopping bags aplenty. The intrigue deepened with a steamy lift scene involving hotel employee Byron Stone, played by Xavier Molyneux.

Sinclair’s character, a visitor from New Hampshire in the US, offers a cryptic explanation for her extended stay in Melbourne. When questioned about her presence, she alludes to “appealing sights” in the city. Sinclair’s character also raises eyebrows by ignoring a call from her father during her stay at the hotel.

For fans of The OC, Mischa Barton’s return to television marks a nostalgic moment. She previously portrayed the troubled Marissa Cooper in the series, which recently celebrated its two-decade anniversary since debuting.

The Neighbours: A New Chapter can be enjoyed on Amazon’s free ad-supported streaming service. The episodes will be airing from Monday to Thursday in both the UK and the US.

In Australia, Network 10 retains first-run rights for the series, while viewers in several other countries, including Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, can stream it on Prime Video. The fresh twists and Barton’s enigmatic character promise to make this chapter of Neighbours an exciting watch.
