We reported earlier this year that a spin-off from the popular Australian mermaid show H20: Just Add Water, was going into production. Originally titled Mako: Island of Secrets, it's now been changed to Mako Mermaids.
Production started in early May, according to an Australian film site. However, a detail I didn't catch was that the show is mainly going to center around a trio of mermaids, Sirena, Nixie, and Lyla, while Zac, previously thought to be the male protagonist, looks to be taking more of a supporting role, but still crucial to the plot.
Actresses Lucy Fry, Ivy Latimer, and Amy Ruffle will be taking up the roles of Lyla, Nixie, and Sirena respectively with Chai Romruen playing Zac.
It's on contract for 22 episodes about 20 minutes each.
Here are pictures of Lyla, Nixie, Sirena, respectively (note that these aren't shots from the set, they're whatever picture I could find of the actor, so you'll at least know what you're in for).
Believe it or not, I couldn't find any legit picture of Chai floating around Google, but if anyone has any good souces, let me know and I'll edit the article to include them.
THIS JUST IN: Here is a shot from the set. No mermaid shots yet, but here you go:
What do you all think? I know there are massive amounts of H20 fans across the world, so this news is incredibly exciting. Comments are welcome!
