Charley Lambert has worked hard at creating a perfect life.

Lucy Robinson was a fictional character from the Australian television soap opera "Neighbours", played by three different actresses. (Kylie Flinker, Sasha Close and Melissa Bell)

Lucy Robinson was the youngest daughter of Jim and Anne Robinson, and the little sister of Paul, Julie, Scott and Glen.

Back story

Lucy's mum Anne died in 1974 giving birth to her and she was raised by Jim and her beloved grandmother Helen Daniels.Lucy was voting least popalarest out of Robinsons but parhaps if her charcter was just played by one actress she may of turn out be very poparly chacter.


From the show's inception in 1985, Lucy was originated and played by Kylie Flinker. During this period, Lucy was a mischievous, yet intelligent little girl, who had great fun with her brothers, loved her gran and dad, and played with her dog Basil. She got into much strife. Lucy was the flowergirl at older brother Paul's wedding to Terry Inglis. Lucy went to find Basil after he went exploring in late 1986, and she fell down a drain with him and was trapped for many days. She was eventually found, but was left temporarily blinded by the incident. Lucy's good friend Bradley Townsend departed to go to Europe with his mother Andrea and her new partner, Jack Lassiter. Lucy promised to go and visit him.

As Jim Robinson dated Zoe Davis Lucy and her eldest brother Paul fell out with her.Unfortunately Zoë also accidentally broke her pet egg, Eggward. Lucy was constantly rude and chucked jug of water all over Zoe. Lucy phoned her up and began making heavy breathing noises down the telephone. Zoe got a whistle and blew down the phone the next time a call was made. Lucy was left with a burst eardrum and gave up. She was nearly killed shortly after when she was stung by a bee on Ramsay Street, but Clive Gibbons performed a life-saving tracheotomy on her on the Robinsons kitchen table. Her behavior towards Zoë then began to mellow some what. [http://www.perfectblend.net/neighbourhood/bio/robinson-lucy.htm]

In early 1987, everyone was at the beach and Basil fell into the water and drowned when the tide took him. Lucy was devastated by the incident but Scott's friend Mike Young (Guy Pearce) who had failed to save Basil tried to cheer her up by getting her a new puppy, Bouncer, which Lucy adored.


In 1987, Lucy went on a trip to Europe for a few weeks to visit her friend Bradley. This storyline was to cover the departure of Kylie Flinker from the cast. When Lucy returned in May 1987, She had grown considerably and was now played by Sasha Close.

Lucy had become a bit of a snob during her time in Europe but after no one came to her dinner party, she learnt to be humble and soon fitted back in. She was present at both Scott and Paul's weddings.

In late 1987, Lucy's behavior became odd. She let go of Bouncer's leash while taking him for a walk, was dropped from the school netball team and began acting strangely at home, forgetting things and becoming clumsy. No one could work out what was wrong with her until one night her brother Scott tried to wake her up but Lucy remained unconscious. After being taken to hospital it was discovered that she had a major brain tumor. Her family were devastated but remained hopeful as the doctors did a procedure and managed to save Lucy's life. Mrs Nell Mangel gave Lucy a headscarf after Lucy felt embarrassed over having her head shaved during the operation [http://www.neighboursepisodes.com/index.php?year=1987&episode=0588] . She was able to return home but had to remain resting for several months due to both brain and psycalogical trauma. At Christmas of that year, Lucy and Mike tried to sell the almost pure bred puppy spawn of Bouncer.

On Valentine's day 1988, Lucy was present at Jim's wedding to Lucy's much loved doctor, Beverly Marshall. On the same day, Paul and Gail Robinson were married for the second time and Lucy met her new stepcousins Todd Landers and Katie Landers.

In mid 1988, Lucy was sent off to the Alumwood boarding school where she stayed for 2 years, returning each school holidays.


In 1991, Lucy returned to Ramsay St permanently, now played by Melissa Bell, after Sasha Close was forced to give up the role to complete her schooling.

The Lucy that returned was different from the Lucy that had departed. The high-level intellectual was gone, replaced by a stereotypical 1990s blonde bimbo bombshell.

Lucy's major storyline in 1991 was her incestuous relationship with half-brother Glen Donnelly. Scenes showing their relationship were edited out and cut by the BBC in their UK airing.

During this period, Lucy's relationship with life-long friend Emma Gordon came to an end when Lucy betrayed her in the race for a job. Lucy departed the cast again in late 1992 to pursue a modeling career in Europe. She returned briefly in September 1993 to celebrate the birthday of Helen. During this visit, Lucy revealed to her family that she had married her agent David.

Lucy wasn't seen again until early 1995 when Mark Gottlieb discovered her working in a local strip club. He coaxed her back to Ramsay St when he informed her of sister Julie's death the previous year. Lucy returned to her family but there was something amiss. Local kids Jarrod "Toadfish" Rebecchi and Lucy's niece, young Hannah Martin discovered a pornography magazine which featured Lucy as the centrefold. Lucy tearfully confessed to her Gran, Helen that she had a serious drug and alcohol problem and that she had divorced David. Helen told her she was only disappointed that she hadn't come for help earlier. Lucy eventually departed Ramsay St again to work for her Aunt Rosemary in New York.


In 2005, Neighbours celebrated its 20th Anniversary. To celebrate the achievement, Stefan Dennis, a member of the original cast, returned as Paul Robinson, Lucy's brother. After several months of storylines, Paul was injured and had to have his leg amputated. In the aftermath, Lucy returned to Australia briefly to be with Paul. The Lucy of 2005 was an interesting hybrid of the previous incarnations. While still played by Melissa Bell, Lucy seemed to have regained some of the intelligence she lost in the 1990s, and was now a successful business woman, like her brother. She soon returned to America.
