Sindy: You look so great swimming under water. I heard a story one of you hired a swim coach to help you get the part, who was that?

Cariba: That was me. My best friend was a national swimming champ and her mom teaches swimming too, so before we went for the last audition in the water I worked with her for a week. She taught me to swim properly because I had been a doggy-paddler. I needed the help desperately.


Sindy: I know it’s pretty early in your careers, but have you always wanted to be actors and performers?

Phoebe: I knew when I was about eleven that I wanted to act. I did a lot of workshops and eventually went to drama school and decided in 9th or 10th grade that I wanted to get an agent. I got H2O pretty soon after that.

Cariba: I’ve danced my whole life so I’ve always wanted to be a performer. I started acting when I was about 16 and after getting onto H2O I really knew that acting was something I wanted to pursue as well.


Sindy: What’s up next for you girls other than more H2O?

Cariba: I did an Australian show about surfing, but I don’t think it’ll show over there. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have done a show down here called Pacific, which is like a remake of Band of Brothers, and I had a guest role on that.

Phoebe: I’ve been auditioning a lot, taking a bunch of classes and doing more modeling and commercial stuff lately.


Sindy: Is there anything you would like your new North American fans to know about you and the show?

Cariba: I guess they should know that the show is filmed on the Gold Coast part of Australia. Most people might think it was shot in Sydney, but the Gold Coast is a big holiday destination and is such a beautiful place.


Sindy: Yeah, you filmed at Sea World there. Any funny stories about working with the animals?

Cariba: I got head butted by a shark! We actually got it on camera. A shark swam between me and Claire and I don’t know if it was a fin or what, but I remember it being a pretty hard hit!


Sindy: Wow, never a dull moment on H2O! Thanks so much for talking to us girls! We can’t wait to see more of the show!

Phoebe: Thank you! Bye.

    I'm not even really sure who the popular kids at my school are. Kids usually wear anything from cute dresses and heels to jeans and a hoodie. It depends on the person because my school doesn't really have any popular people.

    It depends on the wealth of the school, the culture of the school, etc., I went to three different middle schools. One wasn't so wealthy, so a lot of them had converse, regular jeans, and over-used Aeropostale and Abercombie shirts. The second one, was a bit more wealthy, but they were a bit redneck. The popular girls and guy wore camo most of the time, along with the girls' hair up and jeans up to their belly buttons (ew). The last one was very wealthy. Some of the parents had gone to the best colleges in the region, and the kids wore anything from Forever 21 to very expensive brands.
