(who played Trudy in The Tribe) came to fame in her homeland in the hit series Outrageous Fortune, playing Loretta West. In her recent cover feature interview with Next Magazine
, Antonia spoke about working on The Tribe, it was quiet lovely what was said… Here is an extract from the article:
Then came The Tribe, a long-running children’s series filmed in Wellington. For the rest of her schooling life at Queen Margaret College, Antonia would spend her holidays filming the show that has been the foundation for a generation of new talent such as Shortland Street’s Beth Allen and Fleur Saville.
“I made best friends who I’m still really close to. They are all great friendships because we were together for five of our formative years and I will treasure them for the rest of my life”.
“I will treasure them for the rest of my life”, how can you not love her? :) Below the pages from the magazine.
Big thanks to the Antonia Prebble Facebook page
(join it for the latest news!) and Servilles
for putting the article pics online (I had to magnify the pics and type out The Tribe quote myself lol). Article was written by Kylie Bailey and photos by Craig Owen and featured in New Zealand’s Next magazine, January 2011 issue.
Has Amelia Reynolds left Paradise Cafe? I’m not sure, but hopefully her character Chloe will be back.
Anyhows, here’s a clip of Amelia in Paradise Cafe, series 2 episode 1. In the episode her character Chloe realises she is returning to her ghost form and says her goodbye to her best friend Megan (played by Holly Bodimeade):
… I do hope she is back. Amelia played Tally in The Tribe series 3.
Here is a clip of Lara Custance who plays Abi. The clip also features Georgia Fabish as Natasha. In the scene Abi tries to convince Tai (Nua Finau) to do a job for her mum. She then has a weird conversation with Natasha. Natasha is trying slyly to get some information about the secret goings on in the island…
Lara and Georgia also featured together in an advert for Hil Cook’s Solution Buds. Hil Cook is the make-up artist who did the make-up and ghost effects in Paradise Cafe.
Also I’ve also put the opening sequence of the second series on youTube, watch it here.
Paradise Cafe is showing on CBBC on Monday to Thursday at 6.20pm. Episodes are also on BBC iPlayer. The series will be broadcast in New Zealand later this year.
American fans of The Tribe, who don’t have a weak heart, should catch Spartacus : Gods Of The Arena
which just began broadcasting on Starz
. The new series, a prequel to Spartacus : Blood And Sand, features Jacob Tomuri (who was Luke in The Tribe series 3) doing stunt work. He can be clearly seen in episode one of Gods Of The Arena during a ‘flash-forward’ of the events that happened in Blood And Sand.
Jacob has been working on stunts in the series. The first episode definitely delivers on all extremities. The decapitation in the first arena match will make you freak!
Keep an eye out for Jacob in future episodes of Spartacus, hopefully we’ll see more of him. But if you would like another reason to watch the series, tune in to see Gareth Williams (pictured in the top of the post), he plays the young upstart Vettius in Gods Of The Arena. Gareth is currently dating Antonia Prebble (The Tribe’s Trudy) and his character Vettius is definitely interesting. I wouldn’t be suprised though if he meets a sticky end…
If you live in the UK you can get hold of Spartacus : Blood And Sand (featuring Jacob Tomuri) on DVD in May (more info here) it is currently out on DVD in the US. Continue reading…

Horah for The Tribe’s Facebook page
– for bringing to my attention that Jemaine Clement
, of the awesomely popular New Zealand folk duo Flight Of The Conchords
, appeared in The Tribe
! + Thanks to Twitter
, we’ve learnt that Taika Waititi
(director of NZ films Eagle Vs. Shark & Boy and the US version of The Inbetweeners) is also in the scene!
Clement appeared in Series 4 : Episode 24 of The Tribe. I had to check the episode out myself, and I’ve made a video clip too. Jemaine is the cowboy on the right:
Jemaine Clement (playing ‘Virtual Cowboy No.2′) and Taika Waititi (‘Virtual Cowboy No.1′) appeared only in scenes with The Tribe’s Caleb Ross (Lex). In the storyline Ram (Tom Hern) and Ved (Dan Weekes) are showing a captured Lex what they can do with Reality Space.
The Tribe just went a wee bit more up in coolness-ness for me. It’s just a shame that Bret McKenzie (the other Flight Of The Conchord half) didn’t play the other cowboy.
Were you already aware of Jemaine being in The Tribe? If so, why didn’t you tell me?! ;D
, Cloud 9
have already started on their revival for The Tribe
. Cloud 9 have created an Official ‘The Tribe’
page on the social networking site.
On the page Cloud 9 have posted a message that features news of up-coming Tribe related projects in the works, the full message is pasted below in case you can’t access Facebook.
I’ve found the most exciting news is that: “New novels being published in 2011 – including the eagerly anticipated story of what actually happened to all the Tribes and characters in the aftermath of their boat journey leaving the beloved mall (the subject of episode 52 in season 5)”.
To extend on that Cloud 9 also mention; “In addition there is a motion picture currently in development [I think this is the Blood Of The Judas screenplay] as well as discussions about a Tribe fashion line as well as the possibility of releasing new songs and music along with a range of other interesting and exciting material including never before seen behind the scenes footage and photographs”.
Join up to the Official The Tribe Facebook page to stay updated by Cloud 9 on the developments in reviving The Tribe. Also keep an eye out on fansites Sector 4, Tribe Heaven’s Forum and Tribe Universe for fandom works and info relating to The Tribe. Yay!
Fans of BBC’s Paradise Cafe
will be pleased to hear that series 2 will premiere on CBBC
next week on Monday 17th January 2011 at 6.20pm
episodes 1-4 will show from Monday to Thursday! Check out the cool pics above! (Okay only two of the pics are Tribally related, but I thought I’d put them up to treat the Paradise Cafe fans who visit! – Hopefully there’ll be more to come).
Fans of The Tribe may already be aware that Amelia Reynolds, who played Tally in series 3, has a core role in the series playing ghost Chloe, she looks eerie in the series 2 photo… Lara Custance, who was Harmony in The Tribe spin-off The New Tomorrow, plays Abi.
Many thanks to BBC/Initial, an Endemol Company & Gibson Group, for the lovely pics. Looks like the next series will have allot of drama happening… Continue reading…
