Mr McLachlan worked alongside Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan in Neighbours, but also starred in Home and Away and Doctor Blake Mysteries.

All charges come from the time McLachlan was starring as Frank-N-Furter in the Rocky Horror Show in Melbourne.

After appearing in a number of TV projects, he returned to Australia to work on the Doctor Blake Mysteries, a period drama set in Ballarat.

The show returned to air past year without McLachlan in the lead role and was retitled The Blake Mysteries.
