The 15-year mystery of Dee's disappearance – having plummeted off a cliff in a car on her wedding day – was finally solved this year in what has been one of Neighbours' biggest storylines.

When Madeleine returned to the drama in 2017, not long after its 30th anniversary, she was cast as Andrea, a wicked con artist – and Dee's doppelgänger. She says she had no idea what would eventuate from the explosive two-year-long storyline and shock revelation that Dee was, in fact, alive.

Neighbours star Madeleine West has been giving more gossip on Dee Bliss's long-awaited return to the soap – and has teased the story is set to take a dark turn. Madeleine is reprising her role as Dee for an unmissable guest stint which will be kicking off next week. But the actress has hinted that all may

Why Madeleine West left Neighbours 13 years ago. 13 years after she was supposedly killed off in a car accident, the Neighbours character played by Madeleine West is set to return to Ramsay St.

Just last year, the soap aired Australia's first same-sex wedding since the legalisation of gay marriage. It also delivered a special International Women's Day episode featuring a female-only cast and production.

"Neighbours is creating challenging and hard-hitting storylines," Madeleine explains. "It has to be a mirror to society. It can't be soft and fluffy, otherwise, it becomes redundant."

So when people query her decision to return, she's quick to react.

"I'll challenge anyone who asks why I went back to Neighbours," she says. "Why wouldn't I when I have the opportunity to play these high-arching storylines?"

Looking back on her time away since leaving the show in 2003 to "spread her wings", Madeleine appreciates her career coming full circle.

"I consider myself a character actor and felt the need to play some other characters – which, of course, I went on to do," she says. "I started on the show 20 years ago this year, so it feels apt I've come back now."

It's not just a matter of timing that makes Madeleine's return to Neighbours feel like the right move. The busy actress has taken the opportunity to fulfil a life-long dream of going behind the camera.

"I've done my directing attachment," Madeleine reveals. "It's always been my end goal. It's a nice cycle; the footnote of my career has been facilitated by my starting point."

Adding yet another credit to her name with directing is all in a day's work for the busy mother-of-six. When we chat, she's on her second day of filming the second season of 10 drama Playing For Keeps.

"I can't give anything away, but Kath's storyline is exciting," Madeleine teases of her character, "and a real testament to the strength of womanhood."

Amid a busy schedule of acting, directing, writing a series of children's books and travelling, Madeleine has taken on spearheading the expansion of international charity Project Soar.

Its aim is to educate and empower teenage girls in Third World countries.

"I'm a mother of five daughters, so I've always been interested in the cause of women," she explains. "I think now, in this modern age, the big question is, 'How do we emancipate women around the world?' The answer to that is through education and empowerment."

Not only is the actress pioneering the launch of the charity's Ghana office, she's also bringing the blueprint home to Australia to launch her own charity.

"It's called Neighbours With No Fences and is designed to facilitate the education and development of young girls in Indigenous communities," she says.

It's no easy feat, but Madeleine is making a difference while also making the most of life.

"You need to learn to ask for help when you need it," she says of juggling it all.

"But I've also chosen an activated life, to strive beyond the normal bounds, and am trying to live a well-rounded life."

Neighbours airs Weeknights, 6.30pm.
