Neighbors star Annie Jones revealed the terrible reason she turned her back on her acting career after leaving Neighbors in 1989.
The 53-year-old chose to step away from the limelight to care for his late mother, Elizabeth, who battled Alzheimer’s disease and death in 2016.
For two decades, she has turned down a job offer that may have taken up Hollywood – but said The Mirror on Monday that she had “no regrets” about her decision.

“I think you learn things that life throws at you. That’s what it’s all about, “says Annie, who believes that looking after her mother made her a better person.”
She added, “Anyone who has anything to do with Alzheimer’s or dementia knows what it is.
“It’s heartbreaking to see someone disappear before your eyes. “

Annie, the mother, who was based in Melbourne, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1994, five years after her daughter left Neighbors.
Annie revealed on Monday that she would return to Rue Ramsay as a regular series.
She famously played Jane Harris, better known as “Plain Jane Superbrain,” during the glory years from 1986 to 1989.

“Jane is back in her old neighborhood and bringing with her a glimpse of what her life away from Ramsay Street has been like for the past 30 years,” Annie said in a statement.
Of course, this is not the first time that Annie has been welcomed to Erinsborough.
Earlier this year, she surprised onlookers when she appeared in a guest role for the 35th anniversary soap.
