Brittany Clark got her screen break on Shortland Street, playing a wayward teen who cons her way into breast enlargement surgery. She went on to play Miss New Zealand Mary Wootton in Ablaze (2019), a TV movie about the deadly Ballantynes store fire in Christchurch, and featured as nurse Mia Halston on two seasons of Australian series Doctor Doctor. The Aucklander also starred as a sunburn victim in the final episode of horror web series Ao-Terror-Oa, and showcased her comedic skills via YouTube sensation Viva la Dirt League. Clark, aka Britt Scott Clark, is also a social media influencer on YouTube and Instagram.
I think we got that in one take ... it was quick, it was wet, it was slobbery, it was amazing. Brittany Clark on having to do a kissing scene in TV series Doctor Doctor while being doused with a bucket of water
Anthology series Ao-Terror-Oa showcased Kiwi horror to the world. Funded by NZ On Air and YouTube, the six episodes mixed a range of horror with "everything Kiwi" —including farms, rugby and holidays. Alongside the show, behind the scenes clips and two companion series were released via YouTube and official website 6 Weeks of Horror. The darkly humorous Basement of Horror offered demonstrations of behind the scenes makeup tricks. Hweiling Watches hooked up Ao-Terror-Oa producer Hweiling Ow to a heart monitor, while she viewed classic horror movies.
Shortland Street is a fast-paced serial drama set in an inner city Auckland hospital. The long-running South Pacific Pictures production is based around the births, deaths and marriages of the hospital's staff and patients. It screens on TVNZ’s TV2 network five days a week. In 2017 the show was set to celebrate its 25th anniversary, making it New Zealand’s longest running drama by far. Characters and lines from the show have entered the culture — starting with “you’re not in Guatemala now, Dr Ropata!” in the very first episode. Mihi Murray writes about Shortland Street here.
