In a video posted to Facebook on Thursday night, McLachlan appeared in his character Henry Ramsay’s jumpsuit to congratulate the program on its continued success.
“I’m declaring it, I’m declaring a national romper day in honor of Henry Ramsay and of course Australian super soap, Neighbours” he said.
“You know, I got an invitation to join the show back in 1986. An exciting call that changed my life, a call for which I will be eternally grateful.
“Good memories, good people.”
As Henry, he told viewers, “Thank you for letting me be part of your special Neighbours, I really appreciate it.
“Hey, I used to swear a lot about this hair, but the mullet is back, and the mullet will stay here, as will Henry Ramsay. Thanks again, I gotta finish this, love you guys,” he said.
In his post, McLachlan said he made the clip “to say goodbye to Henry and the neighbors.”
“I liked spending time on Neighboursloved the cast and crew, love you all too! Hope you enjoy it,” he wrote.

A rep for the actor said that reincarnating his mother so that Ann Charleston could be involved in the episode was a particular sticking point.
“Henry’s dead mother is being reincarnated for the final episode, but the abolition of culture will prevent her son Henry from appearing or even being recognized,” McLachlan’s spokeswoman said exclusively. Suncontinuing to call neglect “destructive”.
“What Craig and his partner have endured over the past four and a half years — only to come out on the other side and face, among other things, an attempt to permanently erase his role in Neighbours history is destructive,” the spokeswoman said.
“Craig was not invited to take part in the final episode or contribute in any way to the completion of the film. Neighbours.
Henry was and continues to be Neighbours a favorite, a character that Craig loves to this day. Craig has participated with joy and enthusiasm in a number of Neighbours holiday milestones over the years, and was always so excited when I was invited to participate.”
