Melanie Vallejo on "Packed to the Rafters" (2009)

Former Blue Ranger Melanie Vallejo (Madison, Mystic Force) made her debut on the hit Australian drama "Packed to the Rafters" this week. Vallejo plays Katrina, or Kat for short, a massage therapist who meets Ben Rafter (series regular Hugh Sheridan) at jury duty where they become fast friends. Kat helps Ben realize that he may be punishing their defendant because of his victimization in a robbery months before. Ben helps Kat when he discovers that she's being evicted. He invites her to come stay in the home he shares with his best friend and his girlfriend, who is instantly suspicious of Kat and her motives for wanting to help Ben, especially after Kat helps Ben & his brother Nathan get back at Nathan's former co-worker who has been sabotaging his attempts to find work after he was fired. Vallejo is scheduled to appear in four episodes of the series. In an interesting PR connection, Ben's girlfriend is played by Zoe Ventoura, who starred in the Aussie series "Kick" alongside Vallejo's boyfriend & Mystic Force co-star Firass Dirani.
