Erin Cahill (Jen, Time Force) had a starring role in the three-minute comedy short titled "Just Before Dark." Cahill portrays Danielle Fitzpatrick who arrives home from a day at a carnival with her friend Landon. When he suggests they take their friendship to the next level, Danielle reveals that she's never had romantic feelings for him. Landon, however, believes that it's his job as a Jedi that turns Danielle off. She gets offended by the notion and walks away but Landon isn't finished. He uses his Jedi powers to force her to choke, much like "Star Wars" iconic villain Darth Vader. He stops quickly and when Danielle accuses him of being a bad Jedi he uses the force once again to attempt to snatch back the stuffed animal he took for her at the carnival. Danielle yells for him to stop and tells him that she never wants to see him again.
Michelle Langstone (Kat Manx, SPD) continued her recurring role as Fiona Ryan on "McLeod's Daughters," in the sixth season episode "Suspicious Minds." Langstone appears in a few scenes of the episode, as she continues to clash with her new husband Alex's stepmother Sandra, who has taken over running the Ryan family property in Alex's absence. Fiona doesn't have much room to complain since Sandra knows she's faking her pregnancy. Fiona is annoyed when she learns that Sandra has hired a new arrival to head up the work on the property. Fiona meets Riley Ward (played by Dustin Clare) and despite her reluctance to trust Sandra, she agrees to give Riley a trial run at the job. Langstone appears in three scenes of the episode. Dustin Clare starred on "Underbelly: A Tale of Two Cities" with former Yellow Ranger, Anna Hutchison.
Season 6 of "McLeod's Daughters" is available on DVD
PR voice actors Craig Parker & Nick Kemplen turned up on the latest episode of "Legend of the Seeker." Craig Parker (voice of Motodrone, Ninja Storm) reprised his role as the villainous, and deceased, Darken Rahl. Stuck in the Underworld to do the bidding of The Keeper, Rahl comes face to face with his brother Richard, The Seeker, in the episode titled "Resurrection."

Parker appears in several scenes, as Darken Rahl first tries to bargain with Richard, offering to send him back to the land of the living as a Baneling, forced to kill to please The Keeper and keep his life going.
