Robbie Magasiva in "The Ferryman" (2007)


Ninja Storm star Pua Magasiva's big brother, Robbie Magasiva (Porter, Ninja Storm) played a small role in the 2007 horror film "The Ferryman." The film follows three couples on a boat ride that ends in bloodshed after they rescue a mysterious older man who was previously tossed overboard from his last ship after another massacre. Magasiva appears in the final few scenes of the film, as a man who encounters the apparent last surviving member of the boat crew. The two get steamy, until the appearance of the film's final scare, which does not end in favor of Magasiva's unnamed character.

Jamie Croft (Fred Kelman, MMPR: The Movie) appeared in the 2005 miniseries, "Hercules." Not to be confused with the long-running series "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," this television movie chronicled the beginnings of Hercules' life. Croft played the teenaged version of the famous hero, as he goes through his awkward phase, which includes thinking that he's killed someone and later being accused of rape. Hercules is banished from his family as a result, but vows to return stronger and greater than ever to clear his name of dishonor. When Hercules makes his triumphant return, he is a full grown adult played by Paul Telfer. Also appearing in the film is Bruce Allpress (Master Phant, Jungle Fury).
