Who is Kieran Mitchell? Excitement is building as Shortland Street’s mysterious new character is set to arrive on the scene Friday March 16th. Already, fans of the show are in a lather.
For actor Adam Rickitt to leave a successful career in England and take a job on the other side of the world, was a bold move.So why did he do it?
“Character, character, character, he says. “When the Shortland Street Producers approached me with the storyline and the character, I thought Ive got to do this.
Ive seen blogs and the forums trying to guess what my character is and they not even in the ball park,” laughs Adam Rickitt (Kieran).
“Kieran has more depth than any other character Ive played before. Put it this way. It was enough to make me travel halfway round the world.”
No doubt we will be sure to learn a lot more about this complex new character in coming days. Meantime, enjoy this exclusive Shortland Street website pic of Kieran cosying up to nurses Maia and Tania Jeffries.
