We’ve received some cool promotional stuff for Reservoir Hill from TVNZ, check it out below, new pics plus some quotes from Beth Chote about the series and her character Beth Connolly.
How similar are you to the character Beth (other than having the same name)?
Beth Connolly and I are similar in that we are just ordinary teenage girls facing the different situations that many teens go through, like moving to a new town and making new friends.
What do you think about your character becoming a 24-hour interactive online presence – rather than someone she can shut away at the end of each episode?
I think that this is great for viewers because it makes the character seem more like a real friend. For teenagers, advice from friends is a huge thing, and so is the internet as a popular method of communication. The online format will allow viewers to be involved with Beth as a close friend instead of someone they just watch on tv.
