has made another guest appearance in a new NZ series, this time in the web series Auckland Daze
Auckland Daze is an ‘interactive’ series with a storyline/setup similar to Entourage – but with a Kiwi comedy punch! Antonia’s appearance in series one, episode 1, saw her appear playing herself opposite Jimmy James Fletcher (who previously appeared as a guest in Outrageous Fortune with Antonia).
You can see the full episode over on the official Auckland Daze Facebook page, it worked for me in the UK! Yay! New episodes are up every Thursday, episode 1 showed on 27th October.
More info on the series can be found on the TVNZ website.

and her pal Reanin Johannink
have managed to do what only a handful of youTubers have managed to do… They’ve got themselves an internet smash with a video, currently going viral, of themselves filming reactions they get as Jess passes strangers in Los Angeles!
Check out the guys and girls checking out some Kiwi ass…
Okay it’s no revelation of what goes on in the minds of those captured by the booty-cam, but the video has become a smash hit having featured on Yahoo, Huffington Post, news sites in the Netherlands, France, Taiwan… The girls have gone global. In a matter of days since the video was uploaded to the youTube account RearViewGirls, it has amassed millions of views.
The killer tune also hooking viewers in is Something Bigger, Something Better by Amanda Blank. According to her Twitter Jess and Reanin are overwhelmed by responses to their video from both the public and media organisations.
Just a quick update, the girls have uploaded a ‘making of’ video:
Jessie Gurunathan of course appeared in The Tribe as the minor character ‘Dawn’. Her up-coming project is an internet based fashion series with TVNZ, The Libra Design Project which begins on March 2nd. She recently featured on the cover of Sunday Star Times Magazine. Also she’s single guys, and I think she was featured as one of New Zealand’s most eligible batchelorettes. Read the description of the youTube video for more info ha!
is a busy lass. Well she has just been spotted in episode one of Super City
, a new New Zealand comedy series which stars Antonia’s pal Madeleine Sami in various comedic guises and it is directed by Taika Waititi
and co-written by Thomas Sainsbury
(talk about Tribe cast connections!). The episode aired on 11th February 2011.
Hmm, so let’s see, Antonia’s already appeared in Wanna-Ben and she previously featured in The Jaquie Brown Diaries, another comedy series.
Well according to AntoniaPrebble.com (check out the site’s cool new look!) Antonia will be making her appearance in episode three of The Almighty Johnsons, to be broadcast on Monday 21st February in New Zealand on TV3.
Keep vigilant people. If you spot the Prebble in any other broadcastings, do alert us ;D
Without a doubt Antonia Prebble
is an amazing actress. Check her out her comedic side in Wanna BEn
, where she appears in a Dukes Of Hazzard skit with Ben Boyce, playing his sister.
I absolutely love this video! I like the Outrageous Fortune mention too, a sly glimpse of the DVD… ‘Like that shows needs any plugging!’… And Ben Boyce is hilarious!
What did you make of it?
Clip is from Wanna Ben, Series 1, Episode 8: Retro Star. Broadcast on December 3rd 2010 TV3.
New Zealand actress and TV personality Miriama Smith
(who was Moz in The Tribe 3) made an appearance in new TV3 comedy series WANNA-BEn
Check her out in the video below where series host Ben Boyce performs his comedy musical skit ‘Men In Back’, about being an extra in the film industry…
The music video features Miriama Smith with Blair Strang as the two actor leads, strangely enough the pair also worked together on NZ series Kaitangata Twitch (they are pictured together in the top pic of the article here). Also in the video is New Zealand personality Oliver Driver (who was ‘fired’ from NZ show Sunrise which is referenced in the video!).
Miriama appeared in episode 2 of the series, entitled ‘Movie Star’, broadcast on 15th October 2010. The series WANNA-BEn is pretty funny stuff, with public pranks, street dares and celebrity interviews that push the boundaries. Antonia Prebble (The Tribe’s Trudy) will also be making an appearance later on in the series… Stay tuned.
Fleur Saville appeared on the TVNZ Good Morning show to promote The Gaint Face – a comedy theatre production, running as part of 2010′s New Zealand Comedy Festival. Check the interview out below…
Fleur features in the stage production with her former Shortland Street co-star Harry McNaughton. In the interview Fleur also talks about leaving Shortland Street.
Ooh and according to this article here Antonia Prebble (who was Trudy in The Tribe, now a New Zealand starlet) will get a bit of a send up in the production The Giant Face… (She’s not starring in, but will be parodied I guess!)
will be appearing on stage in The Giant Face
, a production which is part of the 2010 International New Zealand Comedy Festival. The production is by comedy duo Natalie Medlock and Dan Musgrove (thy also wrote Christ Almighty!
). As well as Fleur ‘The Giant Face’ will co-star her former Shortland Street colleague (also buddy!) Harry McNaughton (Shorty’s Gerald Tippet). Check out the cool promo pictures of them having fun at the Shortland Street Facebook page
Bevin Linkhorn, who works for the New Zealand media company Gibson Group, has been promoting the company’s latest venture, online site Mash Pit Comedy.
The site let’s users upload comedy clips, edit/mash them up and reupload them. The best clips, as well as being featured on the site, will then be shown on TV. Scoop has more info on the venture here.
A quote from Bevin about the site: “It’s a good opportunity for any kiwi, and grassroots comedians and actors in particular, to show us their stuff and mash up the work of others too.”
Fleur Saville, who played Ruby in series 5 of The Tribe, is set to take to the stage in the one hour production Andrew Clay’s Book Of Love. The comedy production is a series of scenes and discussions about love which addresses the big issues, including; One Night Stand Etiquette, How To Tell If She’s Mental and When To Lose An Argument.
Definitely sounds like a fun production, maybe for the older viewers, though their is no age restriction in place. Fleur previously played a comedic role in the Eight Reindeer Monologues, another show which was for mature audiences.
