Why Did Zima Anderson Leave Neighbours?

Zima Anderson left Neighbours because she felt that she’d learned basically everything she could from it, and wanted a new challenge.

“You get so comfortable,” Anderson explained in an interview with Digital Spy. “Neighbours is the best school you could ever go to for acting. You never get an experience like that anywhere.

“I learned so much, I laughed so much, and I’d grown so much as a human, so I felt that I needed to challenge myself in another direction.

“It was so hard to leave a place like that because Neighbours is so incredible and fantastic,” Anderson also noted. “I love Roxy, and she’ll always be with me. But it was a choice to go and learn somewhere else because I’d learned so much already.”
