I've got the POWER; From stranger to Zeo Ranger!
TV's favourite teen superheroes the Power Rangers zap on to our TV screens today in a new series called Power Rangers Zeo. Catch them every Saturday on GMTV at 8.55am. Pink Ranger Catherine Sutherland has slipped into the editor's chair at Mega Mirror to bring you the lowdown.
BEING a Power Ranger is a pretty tough job. When I found out I had the part as Katherine the Pink Ranger, my life turned upside down.
I'm Australian and suddenly here I was living and working in Los Angeles - it was scary but very exciting.
I had three call-backs before I found out I had the role. During one audition, I had to perform 30 seconds of martial arts. I hadn't got much experience, so a friend coached me.
Thank heavens I had a dance background - that saved me in the audition. The training involves the same flexibility, discipline, balance and co-ordination as a dance routine and so that made it much easier.
The filming schedule is hard. I work five days a week, starting at 5.30am and finishing around 5 or 6pm, with half an hour for lunch.
But it's a lot of fun and Nakia, the Yellow Ranger, and I are best friends. When we're not filming together we miss each other.
There's lots of new stuff in Power Rangers Zeo - our fans will hardly recognise us. The Power Rangers have a new source of energy called the Zeo Crystal and new powers we only dreamed of before.
We have a new fleet of Zords, new uniforms and colour assignments. But the villains are deadlier than ever - Queen Machina and King Mondo have their own gang of baddies called the Cogs.
The five selected to serve the cause of freedom and justice are my character Katherine, Zeo Ranger no.1 (Pink); Tanya, Zeo Ranger no.2 (Yellow); Rocky, Zeo Ranger no.3 (Blue); Adam, Zeo Ranger no.4 (Green) and Tommy, Zeo Ranger no.5 (Red). The Zeo Rangers stand ready to take on all the monsters King Mondo and Queen Machina can conjure up and hurl our way.
I'm giving away 35 trendy Power Rangers Zeo rucksacks from Dekker Toys. To win one, tell us which Power Ranger I play in the new series.
