Not long after their characters were married in a classic episode known as Scott and Charlene’s Wedding in 1988, they both left the show to pursue pop careers.   

But their friendship spans back to when they were just 11 years old when they starred as siblings briefly in another Australian show, Skyways.

The pair also dated in real life; and despite not lasting the course, they always remained close friends.
