David de Lautour, Tandi Wright, Michelle Langstone & James Napier on "Being Eve" (2001)

Episode 3 of the New Zealand teen sitcom "Being Eve" finds Eve tackling the issue of beauty, thanks to an assignment from her art teacher. David de Lautour (RJ, Jungle Fury) continues his starring role as Eve's crush, Adam Le Beau, whom Eve seeks to gain attention from in the episode titled "Being Beautiful." She attempts to pretty herself up to impress Adam, until Adam reveals in his art project that he thinks those that try too hard to make themselves stand out are unattractive. Eve is aided in her quest to be more beautiful by her father's girlfriend, Allanah, played by series regular Tandi Wright (voice of Aisynia Cruger, SPD) who goes out of her way to change Eve's look since she believes that Eve is feeling insecure and on the verge of an eating disorder. She takes Eve out of school and tries to give her a major make-over, which has no effect on Adam. Michelle Langstone (Kat, SPD) joins the cast in this episode as Miss Renee, the students' art teacher who assigns them the project of bringing in a representation of their idea of the perfect human form. She appears in two extended classroom scenes. James Napier (Conner, Dino Thunder) continues his recurring role as Jared Preston, Eve's classmate who manages to sleep through most of art class. For his project, Jared brings in a picture of the Pope, since he knows he had to be practically perfect to get his job as pope. Napier appears only in the two classroom scenes. Michelle Langstone & James Napier later appear together in the Power Rangers: Space Patrol Delta episode titled "History." Langstone & Tandi Wright both appeared on "Xena: Warrior Princess" together and Langstone appeared alongside David de Lautour in the Power Rangers: Jungle Fury finale.

Blake Foster (Justin, Turbo) played a supporting role in the 2-part television movie "Family Album," based on Danielle Steel's novel about a celebrated female actress named Faye Thayer and the complications surrounding her life after she marries and starts a family, leading to both love and strife. Foster appears in the first part of the T.V. movie playing Faye's oldest child, Lionel during his childhood years. He appears throughout the first block of the film, as Lionel witnesses his family's fall from riches, his parents break-up and their later reunion. Foster can be seen in photographs shown at the beginning of the second part of the movie. It's revealed later that some of the photos seen in the album were taken by Lionel. As an adult, Lionel is played by Joe Flanigan, the star of Stargate: Atlantis. Flanigan appeared alongside PR alum Emma Lahana on that series.

Keith Robinson on "ER" (2001)

Back in 2001, Keith Robinson (Joel, Lightspeed) made three guest appearances on the hit medical drama "ER" during its seventh season. Robinson played William White, a college student hoping to get into medical school. He first appears in the episode "A Walk in the Woods." When William never even gets an interview, he seeks out Dr. Peter Benton (series regular Eriq La Salle) who takes him under his wing in an attempt to help him get in, after Benton discovers that he had lower test scores than William but was accepted to fill a racial quota. This entry features screencaps from all three of Robinson's episodes, given that he only appeared in one scene in both his first and last episodes. The bulk of his role comes in his second appearance during the episode "The Crossing," where Dr. Benton forces William to tag along on his rotation so he can get a feel for the emergency room, which William appears reluctant to take on after spending time with real patients in life and death situations. In his last scene in the episode "Sailing Away," he thanks Dr. Benton for helping him get into medical school.
