has been busy lately promoting the MTV series Underemployed
She has been giving numerous interviews, from sharing her skin regimen, being interviewed in a carriage moving around in New York and attending various parties/events.
Next month Michelle will be live on stage in New Zealand for a one woman stage production entitled Chop/Stick running from November from 20th-24th at The Basement Theatre.
“Chop/Stick is an experiment. We took one actor and turned her into a Samoan teenager, a fifth generation greengrocer, a Chinese grandmother. And a white guy. It’s an exploration into being Asian. Into being a New Zealander. A woman. A man. An Asian-New-Zealander-Man-Woman. And anyone in-between.” – sounds like fun!
Anyhows you can keep up with the latest Michelle Ang news by joining up to her Official Facebook Page for updates!

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.”

Fleur Saville also returned to the Shortland Street, playing Libby Jeffries, as part of the shows recent 20th birthday celebration.
has done a video interview with AsiansOnFilm.com
In the (recent) interview Michelle talks about The Tribe, The Tribe fans and her take on the series! It’s great hearing her talk about it after such a long time. In this interview video she also talks about getting her role in Neighbours, being in and leaving Outrageous Fortune (she actually asked to be written out of the series!), getting her role in Big Momma’s 3 and also how she got to be in the short film The Potential Wives Of Norman Mao.
Check it out, it’s great! (Albeit brief)
It’s a shame they didn’t ask about her role as lesbian characer Lily Zee in South Of Nowhere, as that was an interesting guest role she had, post Outrageous Fortune.
In an interview with Woman’s Weekly
, Megan Alatini
talks about what led her to do a charity head shave to raise money and launch awareness for the Child Cancer Appeal Month.
Here’s a quote from the article:
“She [her friend] said, ‘Would you ever shave your head?’” Megan recalls. “I said, ‘No way.’ She then said, ‘Would you do it for child cancer?’ I thought about it for five minutes then said, ‘Well, yes. Probably.’ She said, ‘We’ll be in touch.’”

The charity head shave took place on March 2nd, read more about it here.
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.”
