Get to Know Lucy Lovegrove


Lucy plays the beautiful Sass. A new face for Ferndale, but a familiar one for some of the residents. 

 

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Canberra, Australia.

 

Name three similarities between you and your onscreen character.

We’re both very ambitious - we’ve got big dreams and we aren’t afraid to chase

them, though I’d like to think I’m not as ruthless as Sass. We both care a lot about family and would go to great lengths to protect those we love. We both have great clothes!.. I joke. Sass would out-dress me any day.

 

What are your hobbies/interests outside of SS?

I loooooooove food. I'm always keen to try new restaurants and new dishes.

I also enjoy cooking, though I'm not naturally gifted in this area. I really try to follow recipes, but due to missed ingredients I often end up improvising, which has led to some 'interesting' creations.

 

What is your favourite destination in NZ and overseas?

I haven't seen enough of NZ to have a favourite place yet. It's way too early to make such a big call.

Overseas, my favourite destination so far has been Japan.

 

What is the thing you enjoy most about going to work everyday?

Probably the fact that I can't wait to go to work every day.

 

What has been your favourite scene to film in your time at Shortland Street?

Oh! There's one that clearly comes to mind, but I can't tell you! Spoilers!

 

Which other actors/actresses do you like working with the most and why?

I love working with Lukas (Finn) - the sibling dynamic is so fun to play with. Actually, any Warner scene.

Reid, Michael, Ange and Lukas (Harry, Chris, Rachel and Finn) have some hilariously inappropriate moments on set.
