Cariba Heine Interview
Interviewer: You’ve just premiered on Nickelodeon in the United States, how does that feel?
Cariba Heine: I think getting the show to America was a big goal because we’d always been told that America doesn’t normally buy Australian shows. Now we’ve gotten used to the fact that its been playing in the UK. It’s been really exciting, talking to people on the phone who have accents, it’s pretty hard to comprehend.

Interviewer: How did it feel to be nominated in the first Nickelodeon UK Kid’s Choice Awards for best TV Show?
Cariba Heine: It was a really big surprise! I didn’t believe my agent when she said we were nominated for being the best show.
Interviewer: What is it about H20 that makes it so popular?
Cariba Heine: I think it’s just because it’s something so different than what people have seen before. It’s kind of a mix of fantasy, teenage problems, and with the beautiful beaches and locations of Australia, it’s like a triple threat.
Interviewer: There are a lot more shows lately centering around strong female characters, how do you feel about that?
Cariba Heine: I think it’s really cool! You can tell by the fan mail we do get, because a lot of times it’s three friends who all choose a character to be. The characters are also role models as well as us as actors. It’s really nice to hear that little girls are getting on the girl power bandwagon.
Interviewer: Cleo is shy and Rikki is more of a rebel. Are you at all similar to your characters?
Cariba Heine: I don’t really think I’m very similar to Rikki, but there are little ways where we’re similar. She’s just very, very blunt and sometimes gets in trouble because of her honesty, I’d like to think that I’m a little more tactful than Rikki.
Interviewer: What is your favorite thing about your character?
Cariba Heine: I love that Rikki is really sarcastic and has some really dry lines, I like playing the one liners with her.
Interviewer: What are some of the best and worst things about filming the series? I heard the tails took six months to make, are they difficult to work with?
Cariba Heine: The tails are amazing, the detail that has gone into them is incredible. One of the best things is the underwater stuff and getting to swim in the tails because you just feel like you’re one with the water. Now it’s more natural to swim with the tails than with our legs, I’m kind of missing it! I think the worst part could also be the water stuff because sometimes it’s dark and cold at 6am, and they make it really salty so some mornings are a little difficult.
