Mini Bio (1)
Tom Oliver has enjoyed a very successful career in television, spanning 35 years. He is most famous for his long-running role as Lou Carpenter in Neighbours (1985). Tom's character began as a loveable rogue, and a love-rival for the attentions of Harold Bishop's wife Madge. His character mellowed over the years, losing the rogue car dealer image and becoming a very trustworthy landlord and a father. He is a huge favourite for 'Neighbours' fans, as was shown when Tom was axed in 1997, and furious fans demanded he be given a new contract. The comedy Tom has given the show through Lou over the years has been excellent. In recent years his partner in laughter has been Harold Bishop (played by Ian Smith), and in years gone by when he'd be joking around with lodger Rik Alessi, played by Dan Falzon, and Doug Willis, played by Terence Donovan. Lou has courted settling down on numerous occasions, but remains a batchelor and has moved in with Harold, a one-time enemy, having lost custody of his daughter. Tom has been an excellent full-time cast member of the soap for over 10 years now, and remains central to the show. An excellent actor.
