Last week there was an article on the Shortland Street website where the cast talked about their Father’s for a NZ Father’s Day special… Beth Allen (Brooke Freeman in Shorty/Tribe’s Amber) talked about her pops who definitely sounds like a top bloke, the article is here and pasted below. Also on the Shorty website were a few lovely pics of Fleur Saville (Libby Jeffries in Shorty/Tribe 5′s Ruby) posing on a new set design, check the pics out here and here.
And just a final bit of news, Sally Martin, who had a brief role in series 4 of The Tribe as ‘paid for bimbo’ Kandy, is joining the cast of Shortland Street. I’m not sure if she will be a permanent fixture though. Her most well known character to date is the Blue Wind Ranger, Tori Hanson, in Power Rangers Ninja Storm.

He’s utterly dedicated to our family; crazy-smart; hardworking like you wouldnt believe; straightforward; fun and funny.
What is one of your favourite memories spent with your dad?
I was three years old, floaties on, being taken into the surf with Dad and floated on the waves. I am pretty sure its why I am still such a water-baby!
What are you going to do for your dad on Father’s Day this year?
Pretend that’s not why were there for dinner, because he hates being made a fuss of!
