    Chris Warner is still with them.

    Hone Ropati did a cameo last year. Rachel McKenna, who is one of the earlier cast members now works backstage as a producer or something. I think Nick Harrison (the character) is dead.

    Alison Raynor America - caught having fling with Chris when he remarried

    Jaki Manu

    Jenny Harrison Went to Wellington with Marjorie as her aide.

    Gina Rossi Left with her husband Leonard to work in Australia

    Kirsty Knight Left for Australia with Stuarts older brother (?) who was identicle to the one who raped her in earlier episodes.

    Sam Aleni died after marrying his 'sister' TP (she was not his sister after all, but that was a GREAT storyline)
