Natalie Bassingthwaighte Says She Received Death Threats When Izzy Arrived On Ramsay Street
In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’d already know that Natalie Bassingthwaite has returned to Neighbours to stir some trouble.
The singer and actress played Izzy on the soap, the woman who not only broke up Karl and Susan, but also left Karl at the alter when they were supposed to get married, AND faked being pregnant to keep him!
And now, yep, she’s back!
Nat spoke to OK! magazine about her return and revealed that back when she was playing Izzy in the early days, she would receive death threats from some hardcore Neighbours fans because breaking up Karl and Susan is blasphemy, dammit!
“I always had someone [writing in] hoping I would die.
“They’d write pages on how horrible I was to break up Karl and Susan.”
Izzy is returning to Neighbours in a movie-length episode that surrounds Toadie’s ’90s party, which is kind of fitting if you think about it… everyone’s thinking about the past and BOOM, here comes the biggest blast from Karl’s past!
Nat told Digital Spy that people are probably going to hate her even more this time around but if possible, please refrain from online threats, people!
“If you loved to hate her before, you’re going to love to hate her even more this time around.
“It’s next level stuff – you won’t believe what she can conjure up in her head.”
Izzy returns to Neighbours on Channel 11, Feb 13.
