Aww there’s a lovely article on Lee Donoghue, the former Shortland Street star who was Spike in The Tribe, in New Zealands Woman’s Weekly magazine.
From the article the Kiwi actor said:
“Going to New York really changed everything for me,” explains Lee, who spent nine weeks in the Big Apple last year, attending Susan Batson’s prestigious acting school. “Right before I headed home, I went to Hollywood and had a meeting with one of the top actors’ agents which, to my surprise, went really well. I was blown away and it left me with a big decision.
My contract was due to expire at Shortland Street not long after I got back and the US agency didn’t want me to sign on for another 12 months in case something else came up.”
