The Profiles

Here are the profiles of the five main actors as sent to me by Louise Hall. I think we can all see that they are way out of date now (I think they would murder Louise if they knew she was handing these out still). As a die hard Pugwall fan you have to know some of this stuff!

Jason Torrens

Born: 20.05.1975

Hobbies: Playing guitar and drums. Playing in a band with Ricky Fleming and Troy Beckwith.

Music Preferences: Guitar music and heavy metal.

Favourite Bands: Guns 'n' Roses, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeath.

"To get into Pugwall, I auditioned as I heard about it from a friend and then my agent organised auditions for the show."

"Filming Pugwall was an experience I will never forget. It changed my views on many things. I learnt alot about TV Industry."

Favourite Actors: Mel Gibson, Steve Martin, Julia Roberts, Kurt Russell, Micheal J. Fox, Judd Nelson, Chevy Chase.

Favourite Movies: Back to the Future, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Lethal Weapon 2, Overboard, Evil Dead 2, The Breakfast Club.

Rebecca Blomberg

Age: 16 years (my note: this was around 1990)

"In 1988 I auditioned for the part of Jenny in Pugwall and I got the part. My one dream has always been to be a singer. It was all I ever wanted to be and I finally got the chance."

"Ever since I can remember I have loved music, and when people began to encourage me to do something with the talent I had, I started having singing lessons."

"I enjoy cooking, dancing, watching Rugby and cricket. I love listening to music. I like a variety of music, ranging from 60's music to the music that is played today on radio."

"My favourite bands and vocalists are: Billy Joel, Barbara Streisand, Madonna, Crowded House, Split Enz, Cold Chisel, Jimmy Barnes, Guns 'n' Roses, Queen." (my note: good taste Rebecca!)

"My favourite actors are: Meryl Streep, Mel Gibson, Julia Roberts, Kevin Costner."

Rebecca is the lead singer in The Orange Organics, the band in Pugwall's Summer. Rebecca sings all of her own songs in the show.

The producers of the show were looking for a blue eyed blonde girl or 14 or 15 to play the character Jenny. At the time Rebecca was taking singing lessons, and when she was auditioned, the Nine Network accepted her for the role.

This is every girl's dream come true. In the series the character of Jenny who is surrounded mainly by boys as the band is made up of four boys becomes the main force in achieving their success in having their album released.

Rebecca is currently working on some new songs to release her first single (my note: wowowow!!)
