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.”

He lost out to Nick Oswald as New Zealand’s Cleo
bachelor of the year 2011, but that hasn’t stopped our favourite bachelor Ari Boyland from dreaming up his own family plans.
In NZ Woman’s Weekly magazine Ari talks about starting his own family as well as recently becoming an uncle to Ezra, his sister Ruth’s daughter. The article appeared around March 13th in the mag.
Check the article out, there’s lovely family pics of Ari and the Boyland clan:
In the article Ari also talks about a period of uncertainty where he found it hard to find work. There’s also a mention of The Tribe, which he starred in at the age of 10 as KC, he’s 23 now, time sure has gone quick. He currently plays Brodie Kemp in Shortland Street.

On Saturday 26th February 2011, Beth Allen
got married to Charlie McDermott
. The couple have been working together at the Basement Theatre
, which is managed by Charlie, as well as creating their own production company, Royale Productions
In an article exclusive to New Idea magazine, Beth and Charlie shared their wedding with readers. Their intimate wedding was held in Beth’s parents (Laraine and Jolyon) garden with friends and family in attendance. Amongst those who attended were Antonia Prebble, who was one of Beth’s bridesmaid. The ceremony was performed by Alan Spence (The article said: ‘They were married by Alan Spence, the father of one of Beth’s friends’, we are assuming that it is Victoria Spence’s father – though were not 100%sure).
Key quote from the article:
Beth shed a few tears listening to bridesmaid Antonia Prebble’s speech. She met the Outrageous Fortune star on the set of The Tribe in Wellington, at age 14.
‘She talked about how we first bonded over the fact we both had terrible hairstyles – mine bleached blonde with the intentional feature of 6ins roots, and hers a bright purple bob’
With special thanks to Emma H for the magazine scans and to Jebrill for info on the article. You can read more about the couple and their engagement/wedding plans over at BethAllen.Webs.
