Kristian Schmid on Rafters

ksThere are quite a few stars popping up on different networks at the moment.

Next week we’ll see Kerri-Anne Kennerley’s appearance on Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation.

An hour later Sea Patrol’s Kristian Schmid has a role in Packed to the Rafters, as the brother of Jake (James Stewart).

“I’m playing a character with Cerebral Palsy and he is the brother of Rachel’s boyfriend,” he told TV Tonight. “It brings up a whole lot of ‘how am I going to deal with this?’ subjects.”

“The cast are really friendly, as are the crew, and they make the guest artist feel very welcome, so I’ve been having a ball.

“It’s really got some fantastic writing on it as well, which makes my job a lot easier.”

It airs 8:30pm Tuesday on Seven.


  1. I watched Kristian Schmid’s first week on Packed to the Rafters and was very impressed. He was convincing in his portrayal of a character with cerebral palsy. I’m looking forward to seeing how they develop his character on Rafters.

  2. If there isn’t a scene of Schmid dying a tragic hit-by-a-minivan-whilst-racing-to-stop-his-girlfriend-from-getting-an-abortion death, I ain’t watching!
