Mischa Barton uncovers her extensive Australian past before joining the Neighbours revival

She’s a Hollywood actress and one of the new stars of the Neighbours reboot.

But Mischa Barton has revealed she is no stranger to Australia.

The 37-year-old British born actress, who rose to fame in The O.C., first came Down Under as a teen, and has been back many times since.

‘I have spent a bit of time here prior to this year,’ the actress told Who Weekly.

Mischa was 15-years-old when she made a Disney movie A Ring of Endless Light on the Gold Coast in 2002.

‘My character could talk to dolphins, which was very funny and sweet. We filmed at Sea World and in the ocean, which was fun.

‘I’ve been back for many things – I’ve done the outback, I like to go to Sydney quite a bit and I have friends in Melbourne.’

Mischa began her career as a child actress in Hollywood films like The Sixth Sense and Notting Hill, which were both released in 1999.

However, she became a bona fide superstar when she was cast as troubled teenager Marissa in the hit TV series The O.C., which ran from 2003 to 2007.

It comes after Mischa revealed it was Neighbours veteran Kylie Minogue who inspired her to accept a role on the iconic Australian soap. 

‘I was familiar with it, probably the same things that most people recognise about the show, like Kylie Minogue and the fun stuff,’ she told the Herald Sun.

‘So when the producers approached me about the role, I thought the character of Reece Sinclair was a very good fit.’

The Amazon Prime reboot of Neighbours is already screening on Channel 10 and 10Play and is set to drop on the streaming giant on September 25.
