The model Montana Cox has revealed that she was delighted to find herself in the center of one of the Neighbors‘more explosive stories for her first acting role.
The newcomer, who is best known in Australia for winning Australia’s 2011 Next Top Model cycle, was revealed to whattowatch.com more details about the mysterious Britney Barnes and her connection to baby Isla Tanaka-Brennan.
Eagle-eyed viewers can catch a glimpse of her in the cafeteria, sneaking past David, Aaron, and the baby a few episodes before getting to know her properly.
“When you first see her, she’s sneaking around, but it takes a little time to figure out who she is and what she’s doing there,” shared Montana.
“But there has been a great advance towards that. When it happens, you’re like, ‘Woah!’ There are tons of things, many other levels. “
Fans will, of course, suspect that Britney may be the real mother of baby Isla, who was returned to parents David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) and Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) after mother Nicolette Stone fled Ramsay Street while she was still pregnant.
David’s father, Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis), tracked down Nicolette and secretly paid him to deliver the baby to him and disappear.
Unbeknownst to Paul, Nicolette had given him another baby, not little Isla! And since David and Aaron didn’t realize it, viewers wondered who the baby REALLY belonged to.
After stalking David and Aaron around Erinsborough, Britney takes drastic action and the pair make a horrifying discovery …
“At the Shorts and Briefs Film Festival, there’s a huge fireworks display and at the same time they find out that the baby is missing,” Montana explained.
“There is a lot of chatter, which is fair enough when you lose your son!
“They really go through the emotions trying to find her. It would be a really terrible thing to live as a father. “
Chief Constable Levi Canning (Richie Morris) finally manages to locate Britney and the baby after some clever detective work.
“You find her at the community center and she’s there, taking care of her, because she really has nowhere to go,” Montana said.
“She just got her daughter back and is spending this time with her. She and the baby connect because he hasn’t been around her and gave her away.
“She has all that guilt for letting her go, so it’s a really nice moment.”
With the baby safe, David and Aaron are beside themselves with relief, until they discover the truth about their baby’s real mother.
Not only that, they are stunned when Nicolette returns to confess everything and another great twist is revealed!
Could ‘fake’ baby Isla have a closer connection to the Tanaka family than anyone realizes?
Montana only signed up for a brief period in NeighborsBut she insists that it has given her a real push to take on more acting roles alongside her busy modeling career.
He has appeared in campaigns for luxury brands such as Lanvin and on the covers of major fashion magazines; recently shared his latest Tatler shoot on Instagram.
“Be in Neighbors it has been an amazing experience. I’m transitioning from modeling to acting, so it has been a great learning experience and a great challenge. I really loved it.
“I was very proud of myself because I never knew if acting was something I could do. I’ve done a few shows in Australia, but it’s always been something I’ve wanted to try.
“The cast and crew made me feel at home, comfortable and never nervous because they always made it so easy.”
Although we won’t see her on Ramsay Street for long, she did drop a BIG hint that Britney’s story might not be over …
