Georgia Brooks is a fictional character from the Australian soap opera Neighbours, played by Saskia Hampele. The actress was travelling through Kakadu with her boyfriend when she received a call from her agent about a regular role on Neighbours. Hampele was then asked to film an audition for the show and she said that she could not turn down the opportunity to play Georgia. She also believed that she was meant to get the part because the character was originally called Daisy, a nickname her boyfriend and friends call her. Hampele made her first screen appearance as Georgia during the episode broadcast on 5 October 2012.

Georgia was introduced to Neighbours as the cousin of established character Toadfish Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney) and she soon moved in with him and his partner, Sonya (Eve Morey). Georgia is a graduate nurse from the country. Hampele stated that she is a positive person, while writers for TV Week and Soap World described her as being "bubbly" and "vivacious". When Georgia's childhood sweetheart, Scotty Boland (Rhys Uhlich), was introduced, she began questioning their relationship after developing feelings for Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan). After Georgia learned that Scotty was gay, she went on a downward spiral and briefly lost her job at the hospital due to a drugs scandal.

Casting[edit]

On 1 August 2012, it was announced that Hampele had joined the cast of Neighbours as Georgia Brooks, the cousin of established character, Toadfish Rebecchi (played by Ryan Moloney).[1] While travelling with her boyfriend, Kayne Tremills, in Kakadu, Hampele received a call from her agent about a regular role on Neighbours.[2] She was asked to record "an impromptu audition" for the show's producers and the actress noted that the Australian outback featured in the backdrop of her video was "a far cry from Ramsay Street".[2] Hampele revealed that she could not turn down the opportunity to play Georgia and work in Melbourne, following a stint auditioning for shows in Los Angeles.[3]

The actress thought that she was meant to get the part because the character was originally named Daisy, a nickname Tremills and her friends have given her.[2] Hampele later told Erin McWhirter from TV Week that after a few weeks of filming, she felt part of the Neighbours family and she took an instant liking to Moloney.[3] She explained "Ryan is absolutely lovely and I think because I came into the show as family. I took an instant liking to him and see him as an older brother. He's been able to show me the ropes a little bit."[3] A day before she appeared on-screen, a video featuring Hampele receiving a tour of Erinsborough from cast members Alan Fletcher and Jackie Woodburne (Karl and Susan Kennedy) was released.[4] Hampele made her first appearance as Georgia during the episode broadcast on 5 October 2012.[5]

Development[edit]

Characterisation[edit]

Moloney told a writer from MSN that Georgia would "stir things up" in Toadie's household.[6] Shortly after she arrived, Georgia moved in with her cousin and his then pregnant partner, Sonya Mitchell (Eve Morey). Moloney quipped that she was another mouth to feed and the house was becoming a bit full what with the baby arriving too.[6] Of how Georgia fits in, the actor explained "It looks as though she's annoying Sonya and she's going to be a bit of a pain in the neck, but then Sonya and her get on like a house on fire and it backfires on Toadie. He's stuck with someone who agrees with Sonya's hippy birthing ways. But it's lovely to have another member of the family on the street."[6] A writer for Channel 5's Neighbours website also stated that as the cousin of Toadie, Georgia already had an established bloodline coming into the show.[2] McWhirter revealed that Georgia is a graduate nurse and described her as being "bubbly", while a Soap World columnist called her "vivacious".[3][7] Georgia is also a country girl.[8] Hampele thought her character was a positive person and hoped that whatever happens during her storylines, she would not change completely.[9]

Love triangle[edit]

Georgia's childhood sweetheart, Scotty Boland (Rhys Uhlich), was introduced in December 2012.[10] Scotty is a country farmer who decides to follow Georgia to Erinsborough. David Knox from TV Tonight commented that Scotty was "not impressed" that his girlfriend had left Birregurra.[10] Georgia is happy to see Scotty, but starts to realise that they have less in common with each other that she first thought.[11] Georgia then questions her relationship with Scotty when he fails to understand why her work is having an emotional impact on her. Instead Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) gives Georgia the support she needs, leaving her with some questions about her future with Scotty.[11] Georgia become torn between Kyle and Scotty. When she decides to spend the afternoon at a fundraising barbecue with Kyle, Georgia starts to feel guilty about ditching Scotty for the day and quickly leaves.[8] Hampele told an Inside Soap columnist, "Kyle has definitely been a distraction for Georgia. She and Kyle spend the afternoon together raising funds for baby Patrick, and Georgia has a great time. That's when she realises there's an attraction."[8] Georgia's hasty exit from the fundraiser causes Kyle to become confused and he thinks she has developed a crush on Rhys Lawson (Ben Barber).[8]

Kyle believes that Georgia's feelings for Rhys will lead her to have her heart broken and he urges her to mend her relationship with Scotty, which leaves Georgia "gutted".[8] Hampele quipped that Georgia likes Kyle and she thinks he feels the same way, so it comes as a blow to her. The actress continued that Georgia has been brought up to stand by her man, so her feelings about Scotty are conflicted.[8] Kyle's grandmother later tells Rhys that Georgia fancies him, so he decides her to ask her out. However, a "bewildered" Georgia turns him down.[8] Georgia and Kyle continue to hide their feelings for each other, but Georgia struggles to contain her jealously when Kyle begins dating Jana Noviac (Kyrie Capri).[12] Georgia realises that her feelings for Kyle mean that her relationship with Scotty is over and she breaks up with him over the phone.[12] When Kyle comes over to Georgia's place to fix the pool, she offers to put some sunscreen on his back and TV Week's Thomas Mitchell declared that "the electricity is off the grid!". However, Georgia's aunt, Angie Rebecchi (Lesley Baker), interrupts them.[12] Milligan said "Kyle and Georgia have that sexual tension. They both know deep down that they have feelings for each other but something just isn't working in their favour yet."[12]

Georgia and Scotty later get back together and Scotty comes to stay with her on Ramsay Street. Georgia is grateful when Scotty appears unaware of her attraction to Kyle.[13] When Scotty suddenly proposes to Georgia, she accepts. She also scolds Kyle for being jealous when Scotty informs her that Kyle has been "mistreating" him.[13] Scotty and Georgia plan to elope in secret, but before they can leave, Kyle reveals that Scotty made sexual advances towards Chris Pappas (James Mason). Georgia is initially unwilling to believe the story, until Scotty confirms he is gay.[13] A Soap World columnist noted "Georgia is shattered to think that she missed all the signs throughout their eight-year relationship".[13] Georgia is hurt further when Scotty abruptly leaves town without saying goodbye.[13] Hampele revealed that Georgia cannot believe her first serious relationship has ended this way and she is frustrated that she did not get a chance to confront Scotty because his letter did not provide the answers that she needs.[9] Georgia has also been left feeling like she was not good enough for Scotty and she becomes angry about that.[9] Hampele added that moving forward, Georgia and Kyle would be a good match as they share similar outlooks on life and are both "a little kooky."[9]

Downward spiral[edit]

In April 2013, it was announced that Georgia would become involved in a drugs scandal storyline.[7] Following the revelation about Scotty's sexuality, Georgia goes on "a downward spiral" which begins affecting her personal and professional life.[9] She swears off any future relationships with men and rejects her friend's attempts to console her. A Soap World reporter wrote that Georgia is "ashamed to be around anyone who knows her."[7] Georgia avoids her own birthday celebrations and when she is treating Pete Clark (Paul Cousins) at the hospital, she is unaware that he is flirting with her.[7] However, when she realises that Pete is interested in her, Georgia decides to go for a drink with him. When Pete rejects her kiss, she becomes even more embarrassed and starts suffering from insomnia.[7] Georgia asks Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher) for some strong sleeping pills, but her behaviour concerns him and he later organises for Georgia to have some time off work.[7] While she is at Charlie's, a conversation with Pete takes "a dark and potentially dangerous turn" when he offers her some drugs. Georgia accepts the pills as she wants to forget her problems and she enjoys a night of hard partying.[7]

When asked how she felt about the storyline, Hampele replied that she enjoyed it, especially as it meant that she got to explore another layer of her character's personality.[9] When some drugs go missing from the hospital, Georgia is wrongly accused of taking them as she is responsible for the drug store. She realises that she left Pete alone with the keys to the store when he came into the hospital again, but struggles to admit that to anyone.[9] During a search of Georgia's bag, sleeping pill prescriptions are found and she suspects Pete had something to do with them. When Georgia is forced to reveal the truth about her own drug use, she is shocked and devastated when she is fired from the hospital.[9] Hampele told Kilkelly "It's going to be extremely difficult for her to get her job back, because it appears initially that she has broken every rule in the book. However, I think she has only touched the surface as a nurse and hospital settings provide some of the most interesting storylines, so I would definitely like to see her remain as a nurse."[9] Kyle helps Georgia to clear her name when he finds the person behind the drugs theft. Georgia's reputation is restored and she is allowed to return to work.[14]

Relationship with Kyle Canning[edit]

"I think that they're a really good match. I think they've done a really good job at just finding two characters who just work together. They share very similar values… They fall in love and I'd like to see a happily ever after for the couple."[15]

—Hampele on Georgia and Kyle (2013)

Once Georgia's life settles down, she and Kyle start spending "quality time" with each other. When they believe their relationship is in a good place, Georgia and Kyle have sex for the first time.[14] However, their happiness does not last for long when Georgia is offered an opportunity to work overseas. Milligan commented "Just when Kyle thinks they're making progress, Georgia springs this on him. He tried the long-distance thing with his ex, Jade, and it didn't work."[14] As Georgia begins to struggle in the relationship, she breaks up with Kyle.[16] He then realises that she needs to work through her issues with Scotty before she can truly move on and invites Scotty back to town.[16] Georgia is shocked when Scotty turns up on her doorstep and Kyle leaves them alone to talk. The talk with Scotty helps Georgia to overcome her insecurities and she and Kyle make up.[16]

Not long after Scotty's visit, Georgia and Kyle face their next challenge when Kyle is temporarily blinded during an eclipse.[17] Hampele stated "Georgia has self-esteem issues because of her break-up with Scotty. Even though Kyle always tries to be there for her, she just keeps pushing him away. And then Kyle has this terrible accident and that puts a massive strain on both of them."[17] Hampele said the scenes between Georgia and Kyle were challenging to film as she and Milligan could not make eye contact. She also found it difficult to have an "emotional response" with Milligan.[17] Georgia and Kyle's relationship becomes so strained that they decide to take a break. Kyle then has a one-night stand with Georgia's best friend Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer).[17] Hampele admitted that she would have preferred Georgia and Kyle to have been happy and stable in their relationship for a bit longer, before it is tested again.[17] Georgia and Kyle become engaged when they both propose. Hampele told an Inside Soap reporter that as Georgia is an impulsive character, she thought it was perfect that she made the snap decision to propose to Kyle.[18] However, instead of accepting straight away, Kyle leaves Georgia to go and get his grandmother's ring, so he can propose to her.[18]

Georgia's cousin Gemma Reeves (Kathryn Beck) discovers Kate and Kyle's affair after hacking into Kate's email account and finding an unsent email from Kate to Kyle detailing their one-night stand.[19] She places the email in a pile of congratulatory email messages at an engagement party thrown for Georgia and Kyle.[19] Georgia then reads out the email from Kate.[18] Realising that her best friend and boyfriend have betrayed her, a heartbroken Georgia flees the party.[18] Hampele admitted that she was "a bit devastated" that the affair was revealed as she realised that she would not get to work with Brewer and Milligan as much in the future.[19] Hampele also thought about how Georgia does not see Gemma's manipulation of her and put it down to Beck, who convinced her that nothing bad was happening in the background.[19] Hampele explained that Georgia is devastated and shocked by Kate and Kyle's betrayal. She does not give them a chance to explain and is unsure whether they are even still continuing the affair.[20] Georgia is "equally angry at them both" and decides to cut them out of her life.[20]

Singing[edit]

During an appearance on The Wright Stuff in May 2013 Hampele revealed that Georgia would be doing some singing in the show. She added that Georgia would perform with Karl's band The Right Prescription.[21] Hampele found the singing storyline to be "quite challenging" and it was not something that she pushed. However, the producers received positive feedback and they continued to show Georgia singing.[20] Georgia later writes and records a song called "Letting You Know", about her relationship with Kyle. Hampele got to record the song in real-life and it was later available to download.[20] Singer and song writer Amali Ward was introduced to the show as part of the storyline.[22] With the drama between Georgia and Kyle, the storyline died down.[20]

Pregnancy[edit]

In December 2013, a reporter for the Press Association announced that Georgia would be shocked to learn that she was pregnant with Kyle's child in the new year. The reporter added that Georgia would "struggle" with telling Kyle her news.[23] While she is recovering from her heartbreak over Kate and Kyle, Georgia was "plagued with ill health", which she put down to stress. After taking a pregnancy test, which turned out to be positive, Georgia had mixed emotions.[24] Hampele explained "Georgia is someone who's always wanted children, marriage and a home. She's always imagined Kyle would be the person she would do all those things with."[24] Georgia initially decided to keep her pregnancy from Kyle because she felt that she could not trust him.[24]

While suffering from severe morning sickness, Georgia collapsed during a gig at Charlie's, leading to Kyle discovering that she was pregnant.[25] After keeping her distance from Kyle, Georgia began to "thaw" towards him and Hampele commented that it was because of her "hopeless romantic" side.[26] However, when Georgia experienced some unusual pain and cramps, Kyle took her to the hospital and they learned that Georgia had suffered a miscarriage.[26] Georgia and Kyle were "shattered" by the news and Hampele pointed out, "It's such a devastating loss. This baby was something they were really looking forward to."[26]

Storylines[edit]

Georgia comes to Erinsborough to work at the local hospital. She is offered a room at her cousin, Toadie's house on Ramsay Street. Georgia's first day at the hospital gets off to a bad start when Rhys Lawson is short with her. Georgia befriends Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer) and they attend a trivia night at the local bar together. Georgia bonds with Toadie's partner, Sonya, and throws a baby shower for her. Georgia also helps organise a bush dance for the school formal, befriending Kyle Canning in the process. Karl Kennedy reprimands Georgia for not filing paperwork correctly and gives her some files to sort through. Georgia comes across a patient file that contains few details and when she speak with her colleague, Aidan Foster (Bobby Morley), Georgia learns that he created a fake name and file for Andrew Robinson (Jordan Smith). Although Aidan asks Georgia not to reveal what he has done, she tells Karl and Aidan is suspended. Kyle invites Georgia to a Christmas party and while they are play fighting, Georgia's boyfriend, Scotty, arrives and becomes jealous of their friendship.

While performing a check-up on Patrick Villante (Lucas MacFarlane), Georgia notices that he has a heart problem. She struggles with the emotional impact of her job and when Scotty fails to support her, she becomes closer to Kyle. Georgia wonders if she and Scotty have drifted apart and she develops a crush on Kyle, which his grandmother, Sheila (Colette Mann), tries to discourage. Georgia breaks up with Scotty and is disappointed to learn Kyle is dating Jana Noviac. In order to take her mind off of Kyle, Georgia organises a charity camp out for the hospital. She is surprised when Scotty asks her to try again, but she agrees. When Scotty later proposes, Georgia accepts and they decide to elope. But before they can leave, Kyle informs Georgia that Scotty made sexual advances towards Chris Pappas. Scotty does not deny Kyle's accusations and he flees Erinsborough, leaving a brief written apology behind. Georgia becomes angry with Kyle as he did not tell her about Scotty sooner. She starts working extra shifts at the hospital, avoids Chris and backs out of her birthday celebrations.

Karl prescribes some sleeping pills for Georgia and she is signed off of work for a week. Georgia agrees to go for a drink with Pete Clark, a patient she treated. When she tries to kiss him, Pete backs off and Georgia accuses him of being gay. She apologises, telling him about Scotty. Pete gives Georgia some drugs and she spends the night partying with him. Georgia later tells Pete that they can no longer be friends and when she runs into him at the hospital, he accuses her of using him. In her haste to leave the room, Georgia leaves the keys to the drugs store behind. She and Karl later find the doors open and some medication missing. Georgia is suspended pending an investigation. Georgia asks Kyle to the hospital ball and he agrees. However, when she cancels, he organises a romantic date for them at his house instead. Toadie interrupts their night to inform Georgia that she has been fired. Georgia is later reinstated when it is revealed that another nurse stole the drugs. Georgia is offered the chance to work overseas and she accepts, despite knowing Kyle does not want her to. When Kyle learns that Georgia lied to him, he brings Scotty back so she can get some closure. Georgia and Kyle then make up.

When Kyle damages his eyesight after looking directly at an eclipse, Georgia tries to take care of him. Kyle becomes frustrated and he breaks up with her. After a brief trip home, Kyle returns to make up with Georgia. Ajay Kapoor (Sachin Joab) asks Georgia to fill in for Karl in their band The Right Prescription. Karl is initially angered at being replaced, but later asks Georgia to join the band permanently. After seeing a clip of Georgia singing online, Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) offers Georgia a contract to sing solo at Charlie's, but Georgia refuses to ditch Karl, until he tells her it is okay. Georgia struggles when she is unable to save Robbo Slade (Aaron Jakubenko) and begins cancelling shifts at the hospital in order to sing at Charlie's. She decides to give up her nursing career to pursue singing full-time. When she saves Jack Lassiter's (Alan Hopgood) life, Georgia asks Paul to be let out of her contract, but he refuses. Georgia finds it hard coping with two careers and Kyle notices that she is constantly tired. Paul gives Georgia's song to Amali Ward to record. However, Amali gives the song back to Georgia, who tells Paul that the proceeds from the sale of the song will go to charity. Paul sues Georgia for breach of contract, but drops the case after learning of Jack's death.

Georgia is delighted when her cousin Gem (Kathryn Beck) arrives in town, but is disappointed when she does not get on with Kate. Georgia hears back from the hospital about the overseas course, and, although Gem encourages her to go for it, she realises what is important and proposes to Kyle. He then proposes to her and she accepts. During Georgia and Kyle's engagement party, Georgia reads out an email from Kate detailing a one-night stand she had with Kyle. Georgia is devastated and Gem uses her grief to isolate her from everyone. They decide to leave Erinsborough for a cabin in Lorne. While there, Georgia goes through Gem's bag and finds her own phone there. She then reads a text explaining that Gem hacked Kate's laptop and printed out the email. Georgia is horrified and confronts Gem, who turns nasty and pushes Georgia backwards into the cooker, starting the gas. Gem pushes Georgia again and she is knocked unconscious. Gem leaves Georgia alone in the cabin as it fills up with gas. Kate finds Georgia and turns off the gas. Georgia suffers from gas inhalation and a bump on the head. She later thanks Kate for saving her life, but says they cannot be friends.

Georgia discovers she is pregnant and she confides in Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) that she is going to keep the news from Kyle, as she discovers he has entered a relationship with Kate. After suffering from morning sickness, Georgia faints and is taken to hospital. She worries that something is wrong with the baby, but Karl assures her that everything is fine. Kyle then bursts into the room and learns Georgia is pregnant. Georgia agrees to let Kyle by part of the baby's life, but refuses to resume their relationship. Georgia decides to move back to Birregurra, so her family can help her raise the baby. When Kyle finds out, he is devastated, but when he proves to Georgia that he can provide for their baby she agrees to stay in Erinsborough. Just as Georgia and Kyle appear to be getting closer together, Georgia has a miscarriage. Kyle and Georgia plant a rose tree for their baby, and Georgia tries to move on without him. However, after Kate dies, Georgia realises life is too short and reconciles with Kyle. After they reconcile, Kyle spends several weeks in Thailand, trying to help his cousin Dane (Luke Pegler) get out of prison. When he returns, Georgia fears that he has lost interest in her, but Kyle assures her he loves her. Georgia panics when she sees a picture of Kyle with a half-dressed girl in Thailand. Kyle convinces her that she was taking pictures with all the guys, and, to prove his commitment, Kyle proposes for a second time and Georgia accepts. Georgia tries to help out Kyle's business by getting him a job making beds for the hospital. She tells him the hospital will pay him, but she secretly pays him instead. Kyle is unhappy with Georgia when he learns the truth, but they make up and set a day for the wedding.

Reception[edit]

Thomas Mitchell from TV Week called Georgia an "Erinsborough hottie".[12] Peter Munro from The Sydney Morning Herald branded the character "goofy" and noted that she was not even sure what month it was.[27] Melinda Houston from The Sun-Herald said that Georgia was "understandably upset" when she learned the truth about Scotty.[28] Of the character's reaction to Scotty's secret, Anthony D. Langford from TheBacklot commented "I find Georgia unraveling about what happened with Scotty to be a bit much since she wasn't in love with Scotty and would have dumped him for Kyle if given half the chance."[29] He added that Georgia's "coolness" towards Chris was logical though, given the state of mind she was in.[29]

A Newcastle Herald reporter thought Georgia was "carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders" when she was worrying about getting fired.[30] In June 2013, The Daily Telegraph's Dianne Butler stated "Georgia's a gorgeous crowd-pulling blonde, but she's as dumb as furniture."[31] Jaci Stephen from the Daily Mail criticised the lengthy duration of Georgia's song storyline. She also said that her song writing was not "exactly Lennon & McCartney".[32] Claudia Connell, writing for the same publication, did not like the character, calling her a "ditsy, whiny blonde".[33]
