Ray Meagher remains the only original cast member still on the show since its premiere in 1988. Kate Richie (Sally) and Norman Coburn (Fisher) received a Guinness World Record along with Meagher for being the longest-serving actors and actress in an Australian serial in 2001. Coburn left in 2003 after fifteen years, while Richie left in 2008 after twenty years on the show. Both have since been eclipsed by Lynne McGranger, who has held the role of Irene Roberts since 1992, and is now the longest-serving actress in Australian television history behind Meagher. Ada Nicodemou has also been on the show continuously for twenty years, since 2000, also overtaking Coburn and Richie.
