From the land Down Under comes a new Nickelodeon series about three girls who accidentally end up with magical mermaid powers. Kidzworld checks out H2O!
Emma Gilbert (Claire Holt) - The leader of the group, Emma's power is being able to instantly freeze water. She's confident, driven, and competitive.
Cleo Sertori (Phoebe Tonkin) - Cleo can turn one drop of water into a bucketful and can mould it into any shape. She was actually afraid of swimming before she turned into a mermaid!
Rikki Chadwick (Cariba Heine) - Rikki is the new girl in town and is very outspoken and kind of a rebel. She can boil water with a simple flick of her wrist.
Lewis McCartney (Angus McLaren) - Lewis is Cleo's childhood friend and ends up being the girls' sidekick. He knows about their secret and is determined to help them understand what’s happening to them.
Zane Bennett (Burgess Abernethy) - Zane is the local bad boy and strands the girls on a boat headed towards Mako Island, where they get their magical mermaid powers.
H2O was nominated for Best TV Show in the first ever Nickelodeon UK Kids Choice Awards.
H2O is filmed on location at Sea World and on the Gold Coast, Australia.
The full moon and the moon cycles affect the girls and their powers.
The mermaid costumes took six months to build and weigh around 30 pounds.
The girls wear one style of tail to [KWLINK 6918[swim, and another [b]floppy version for shots in the bath.
Cariba hired a personal swimming coach during auditions to land the part of Rikki.
Claire has a black-belt in Tae Kwon Do.
"Zane Bennett's a pig. Anything I can do to get under his skin can't be a bad thing, can it?" - Rikki
"Great! So now the whole world knows my dad's a criminal. What would you do Lewis?" - Cleo
"Rikki, at least try and pretend you're having fun." - Emma
"I'm on a hunt and if I find what I'm looking for, I'll rewrite the [KWLINK 6582]history books." - Zane
"Well, let me guess; you're self-centered, you're vain, you're disgustingly rich... Did you just call me buddy?" - Lewis
"I would like to say it's been a pleasure meeting you... but that would be a lie." - Rikki
