Back to the Land with Kate Humble - Mason Turner - Netflix
Mason Turner is a fictional character from the Australian soap opera Neighbours, played by Taylor Glockner. The actor previously auditioned for guest roles on the show, but the producers decided to develop a long-term character specifically for him instead. Glockner's character, Mason, was created and introduced along with the Turner family, as part of a major overhaul of the show's cast. Glockner was given a two-year contract with Neighbours and he began filming his first scenes as Mason in November 2012. Glockner made his first screen appearance as Mason during the episode broadcast on 22 February 2013. In December 2013, it was announced that Glockner was to leave Neighbours and Mason departed on 28 February 2014. The character was introduced two weeks after his parents and two younger siblings. Prior to his on-screen arrival, Mason was serving a three-month sentence for robbery in juvenile detention. He had fallen in with a bad crowd and was led astray by Robbo Slade (Aaron Jakubenko). Executive producer, Richard Jasek, said Mason has a good heart, while Glockner described him as being “smart, funny, serious, angry, caring, playful” and someone who loves his family. Shortly after his arrival, Mason developed a relationship with Kate Ramsay (Ashleigh Brewer). He also became involved in another robbery with Robbo and briefly dated Imogen Willis (Ariel Kaplan).

Shortly after his arrival, Mason began pursuing Kate Ramsay (Brewer) and although she thought he was too young, there was a spark between them. Glockner said Mason and Kate were a great match and he thought that Kate might be the type of woman to help Mason get his life in order. Mason tries everything to impress Kate, including taking his shirt off in front of her. But when he tries “a more heartfelt approach” by compiling a CD of Kate's sister's music to give to her, it prompts Kate to invite him to Georgia Brooks's (Saskia Hampele) birthday party as her guest. However, just as Kate is starting to change her mind about Mason, his ex-girlfriend, Rhiannon Bates (Teressa Liane), shows up in town. Rhiannon's presence is not welcomed by Mason, but he ends up kissing her to get information about Robbo. Glockner told TV Week's Thomas Mitchell that Mason is prepared to go as far as he needs to, but Kate is the girl he has genuine feelings for. Kate witnesses Mason and Rhiannon's kiss and Mason fears his relationship with her is over before it has begun. Despite resisting Mason's advances at first, Kate becomes jealous when she sees him with Rhiannon. Brewer admitted that she was not sure her character should be with Mason, especially after she had previously been involved with someone younger. She explained “But it's different, he's very cheeky and it takes its time. Rhiannon turns up and Kate is like 'Why am I getting jealous?' And that's when it starts to unravel that maybe she really does like this guy. But he's really fun and opposites attract there and she just dives in.” Kate and Mason begin dating, but soon after, Kate's ex-boyfriend, Mark Brennan (Scott McGregor), returns and asks Kate to come away with him. Kate had assumed Mark was dead, so when she begins spending time with him, Mason feels left out of Kate's life. He is threatened by the history between Kate and Mark and eventually he and Mark fight. Kate is left torn between Mark and Mason, but she eventually commits to a relationship with Mason. However, Mason feels like second best and when he learns Kate kissed Mark, he breaks up with her. Glockner told an Inside Soap columnist that Mason was “shattered” over his break up with Kate and even though he put on a front, he was struggling inside. Mason tries to get over Kate by dating new neighbour Imogen Willis (Ariel Kaplan). Glockner insisted that Imogen was just a distraction for Mason and even though he thinks she is “a pretty cool girl”, it becomes clear that Mason is not over Kate. Imogen quickly realises Mason still has feelings for Kate and she calls time on their brief relationship. Mason decides to forgive Kate for kissing Mark and he tries to reconcile with her. They kiss, but Kate pushes Mason away and flees. Glockner explained “When Kate runs out on him, Mason is confused. At the end of the day he still loves Kate and wants her back.” Mason is unaware that Kate recently had a one-night stand with her housemate Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) and Glockner reckoned that Mason would not take it lightly when he found out, adding that it would interesting to see how he harnesses his “explosive temper.”
