Okay, so I totally failed in putting this video up before/on Halloween, but here it is, in case you missed it…
The Tribe creators Cloud 9 Ltd have uploaded a video to their official Tribe YouTube channel of the cast wishing fans a Happy Halloween… Check it out…
Beth Allen (Amber), Meryl Cassie (Ebony), Caleb Ross (Lex), Michelle Ang (Tai-San), Antonia Prebble (Trudy), Megan Alatini (Java) and Lucas Hayward (Sammy)- in that order.
Make sure you subscribed to the Official theTribeTVseries. There’s also some old Channel 5 (UK) interviews I uploaded of Damon Andrews (Guardian), Jacob Tomuri (Luke) and Vanessa Stacey (Alice) in a Halloween themed interview… Check those interviews out here and here.
The Te Papa
museum in Wellington are presenting a series of shows/events for the Matariki festival (Māori New Year). One of the events organised is the Seven Sisters Day
, a free day of music and entertainment at The Marae
on 11th June
The fabulous Vanessa Stacey (who played Alice in The Tribe), has been named as the MC for the event, she will be hosting the day. We know she has good presenting skills from her brief time in the UK on The Core.
Vanessa has a part with the group Whiskey & Sly. More recently she has been seen billed as a solo artist performing the blues and gospel music. In April she performed at “The Gospel According To…” event in Wellington.
You can keep up with Vanessa on mySpace, there’s also some music you can listen to on there, I particularly like the track Brother – check it out!

Remember The New Tomorrow? Well sorry to bring it up if you’re trying to forget all about it… But anyhows Felicity Milovanovich (aka Felicity Milano) who played Zora, which I have to say was an awesome character, plays a lead role in TVNZ kids series Time Trackers.
The series is about a group of teens who travel through time and go on all sorts of crazy adventures. She hasn’t escaped the Tribal get-up that much as Felicity plays a cave-girl named Carmen. The series was broadcast in Australia and New Zealand last year around September time, it is currently repeating now.
Vanessa Stacey, known as Alice in The Tribe, is well known for her acting in TV, film and theatre as well as her singing. She is part of the music group Whiskey & Sly, who are ‘warm, wet and good for you’.
As mentioned, she is no stranger to music, she featured on various tracks on The Tribe album doing backing vocals and in 2005 was featured on the album
Quinessence by The Nomad (aka Daimon Schwalger).
I’ve found an interview Vanessa did last year with Exposure Lifestyles about her music with Whiskey And Sly, you can check it out here, I’ve also added a larger version of her gorgeous pic.
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.
Vanessa Stacey features in the big budget, special-effect loaded, TV movie Aftershock. The two hour TV movie follows the events in Wellington, New Zealand, when an earthquake hits and a tsunami causes havoc on several people and their families. Vanessa is credited as playing a woman, but as she is credited I assume she had a speaking role.
The drama was broadcast on 8th October 2009. I’m not sure, but I think Vanessa is the woman pictured on the right in the picture, wearing the white coat.
Aftershock also stars Sally Martin, who played Kandy in series 4 of The Tribe, as the character Bess.
