Shortland Street 2014 Cast

Shortland Street 2014 Cast

What a year.

We cried and cheered for the deaths of Roimata, Josh, Sarah and Brett. We farewelled Nate, Vasa, Ava, Brooke, Toby, Emma and Evan.

We cringed when “Sup Bro” came out of Chris Warner’s mouth. We giggled when Leanne asked if Sarah and TK’s child was named Trifecta. We started to watch the finale with high hopes and nerves before they fell when we reaised nothing was really going to happened. Offscreen, we loved James’ sweater collection at Shorty Street Scandal and wondered who let Ben Mitchell do another interview.

Ferndale Talk’s second annual Best of 2014 Awards are now open for voting. Voting closes Saturday, December 20 with results released on Sunday, December 21. May the best actor win.
