Former Shortland Street stars Fleur Saville (Ruby in The Tribe 5) and Harry McNaughton spoke to Woman’s Weekly magazine about their friendship and their time spent seeking work in the USA following their departure from Shortland Street.
In the interview Fleur talks about working behind the camera and producing:
Fleur recently took a turn on the other side of the camera, producing a film. “It has been an incredible experience, working over there with American crews,” she says. She says it really helps to have someone who knows her so well close at hand. “It’s good to have a sounding board with someone who knows you, who’s going through the same experiences. It’s a sensory overload in LA. Nothing is easy.”
