She has recently completed her third audiobook for best-selling British-Australian novelist Anna Jacobs, and has voiced animations and dramas, of which ‘Riverside’ is the latest.

Lisa on playing Ruby: “It’s so good to be part of a soap again. Especially playing the feisty, romantic Ruby. Riverside has that optimistic ‘Neighbours’ feeling. A sense of community at a time when we all really need it. I jumped at the chance to play Ruby. She is my favourite out of all the characters, loud, impetuous and naively romantic, she was a joy to play. It was wonderful to be back working in audio-drama again, especially with such colourful characters and a bunch of talented actors.”
