Raro romance for Kip and Alice

Tuesday 31: A lucky Shortland Street fan will get an opportunity to meet with the actors who play Alice and Kip on the New Zealand show this week.

Shortland Street’s producers are here on a week-long shoot of an episode centered on a romance between Alice the nurse and Kip the doctor.

When Dr Kip Denton arrived on the show in 2007, it was revealed that he was Alice’s old flame.

They came close to rekindling that romance but until now have remained just friends on the show.

For Raro fans of the show – we are a bit behind as Kip is still going out with nurse Tracy. Current episodes of Shortland Street in NZ reveal that Alice is now seeing Zimbabwean surgeon Xavier Moyo.

Those who want to meet the actors this week still have a chance. All you have to do is write 100 words on why you are the biggest fan and email it to rkeereweer@shortlandstreet.co.nz by 12pm today.

The episode shot in Rarotonga will probably go to air in NZ later in the year.

Several locals are part of the film crew and are being cast as extras. While the episode will be shot at several locations, some of it will be filmed at the Rarotongan Beach Resort and Spa. - Helen Grieg
