Character: Lance Wilkinson
Actor: Andrew Bibby
Lance, twin brother of Anne
and son of Ruth
, was the man of the family. After his parents separation, Lance went to live with is mum in Ramsay Street in 1997
. He was a bookish fellow (we didn't use the word 'nerd
' in my day) but possessed a kind heart
and a keen wit.
He withstood his fair share of misadventure, including a rather nasty gambling habit, but I think his supreme test was trying to keep up with Amy Greenwood. While caring deeply for Lance, she didn't reciprocate his utter devotion
and eventually fell pregnant
to another young fellow. It was a crushing blow
He soldiered on admirably, however, and eventually met Alana - an eccentric girl who shared his passion for science fiction. I believe they are still wandering the globe, trying their best to be abducted by aliens.
