As some of you will already be aware, Dwayne Cameron has launched a website showcasing his various artistic skills. From his canvases, sculptures, sketchings to his artwork; Dwayne Cameron Art is the official website to go to for info on the multi-talented, sexy, tribe heartthrob!
Due to the high quality of the images on the site, it may take time for it to load, but it’s definitely worth the wait!
The website also features promo videos, highlighting his versatile acting skills, showing Dwayne in various TV and film roles; including Dark Knight, Love Bites, No Destination… The videos are from the youTube channel consciousspace (I’ve previously linked items from that channel on this blog).
Though we are familiar with Dwayne through his role as hero Bray in The Tribe (and also as Tyzonn the Mercury Power Ranger in Operation Overdrive); the website full of his wonderful, thoughtful, and even provacative creations definitely prooves there’s plenty more behind the guy… Check it out!
Bevin Linkhorn will be on the judging panel for the Two Day Play competitions being held during New Zealand’s Fringe festival in February. Bevin is no stranger to the theatre and performing arts, he has starred in, written and even produce several productions. It all no doubt qualifies him as being a judge!
The event will see competitors developing and putting on a theatre play in the two day time frame.
Okay this isn’t such major news, but hey I liked him in The Tribe, so wanted to post about it! Lol. Bevin starred as Ned in series 3 of The Tribe and also featured in indie film Futile Attraction, alongside Michelle Ang (Tribe’s Tai-San) and Lee Donoghue (Spike in The Tribe and current Shortland Street hotty!).
The Blood Of Judas… Before The Tribe series began, Raymond Thompson teamed up with Harry Duffin to help write the series. It has now been around five years since The Tribe finished producing and airing. Since then Harry Duffin has teamed up with with David Richard Fox, another core writer who wrote episodes of The Tribe, and they have written a screenplay as well as a novel for the series. It was known that work begun on a movie for The Tribe back in 2003, the book/novel seems to be based on that screenplay.
Could the book have been the ‘tribal revival’ that Tribeworld was hinting at a while ago? (Back in 2007!?!)…
The novel, co-written by Harry and David, is titled The Blood Of Judas. In an interview for The Tribe anniversary section, Harry talks about working on The Tribe series and talks more about the book, hopefully the interview will be online soon, but till it is, here is an extract…
With the book Dave and I were given the opportunity to be more ‘real’ about what life would really be like if the world was left to teenagers to run. We had much less censorship about what we could portray than on a TV series that was marked as ‘childrens’ television. So, the screenplay and novel are a more ‘adult’ take on the original premise as you will see when they finally hit the page and the screen, which I am convinced they will one day.
The book definitely sounds interesting. The previous Tribe book Power And Chaos, written by Paula Boock, covered the back story of Martin/Zoot, though it contained a few flaws and was not written by the actual people behind the TV series.
‘The Blood Of Judas’ is currently doing the rounds with publishers in both the UK and US. It may be early days to get excited, but hey, fingers crossed…
Watch this space for more news.
In an interview with Ellen Irvine, Beth Allen opens up and talks about her past growing up, as she relates her life-experiences to those her character Brooke Freeman goes through in the New Zealand soap.
Beth talks about her teen friendships aswell as other issues.
“I’ve felt really wobbly and let down by friends,” Beth said. “I can sympathise with that feeling feeling like you know a person and not really knowing them very much at all”.
The interview appeared in The Sunday News and can also be read online and is pasted below. Beth Allen featured in The Tribe as Amber and has had notable guest spots in Power Rangers and Outrageous Fortune.
Beth Allen features in the beginning of the promo for the TV network, along with other Shortland Street cast mates aswell promo’s for hit shows such as Desperate Housewives, Lost and Grey’s Anatomy.
She’s the one in the beginning in blue! (This post has been back dated).
Vanessa Stacey, otherwise known as Alice in The Tribe (series 2,3 & 5) and Brenda Blue in Jay Jay The Jet Plane (UK version) is set to appear on stage in New Zealand for the production The Rodwell Monologues. Info is below… The pic on the right is the promo pic of the play, I don’t think it is Vanessa…
Meanwhile Tribe/Power Ranger star Ari Boyland has his hot bod featured in the promo for the stage play Post Gay, though he doesn’t actually feature in the production. The picture was originally taken to promote the play White Trash Omnibus which featured Ari (more info here). Both plays were written by Patrick Graham.
Both productions are at the Bats Theatre, Wellington. Running during the New Zealand Fringe season. Keep an eye out on that site, as Amelia Reynolds is set to appear at the Bats theatre in a forth coming production this year.
Ari Boyland has ‘officially’ been confirmed as joining the cast of Power Rangers R.P.M. According to Star Points Ranger Cast he will be playing the role of the ‘Blue Lion Ranger’. So he’ll be joining the list of previous Tribe stars to feature as rangers in the series; namely James Napier (Dino Thunder) and Dwayne Cameron (Operation Overdrive) – info on them is on the Power Rangers page.
A website has been set up for Ari at: AriBoyland.com it already features pics from previous acting jobs, including some from his role as KC in The Tribe and his role as James Cooper in the Disney movie ‘You Wish’. Well, he’s already got some PR fans wooing over his piercing blue eyes, very fitting he’s in the role of the Blue ranger, as they’ll compliment the blue clothing he’ll probably be wearing allot of.
I’m sure the character’s name and official pics will be released sometime soon… Till then the pic made for this blog will do! Images are edited from those at Linear’s Ranger’s RPM Site (check it out for RPM pics!) and Ari’s agency page… Oh by the way, the RPM stands for Racing Performance Machines. And the blue ranger morphs into a blue bus, now that’s a bus I want to ride. ; )

The pics of Ella, Victoria and Antonia are great. Also check out the funny one with Antonia’s ‘bunny ears’ as well as the candid one featuring MWS, Beth Allen and others. I think they were taken towards the end of the evening as they have their coats on, I’m not certain though…
