Being Gerald: Shortland St's Harry McNaughton

Thu 8 May 2008 In: Television View at Wayback View at NDHA

Harry McNaughton plays Gerald Tippett Shortland Street's virginal receptionist Gerald Tippett finally got into bed with a guy in a racy episode last week - but alas, he couldn't find his homo-mojo. Our celebrity stalker department pinned actor Harry McNaughton down for a few minutes to pose some questions about Gerald's journey. It's great to see your character finally getting some sort of sex life… Harry McNaughton: Yes! But Gerald definitely didn't have a smooth run of it, I'm sure you'll agree. Poor guy. Did you find the intimate scenes challenging to film? Not really, to be honest. Well, yes, okay, it was pretty weird. But once you got past that it was just like any other scene, it just became about two people making and breaking connections. Bed - and the return of lesbian nurse Maia Jeffries - on Shortland Street, weeknights at 7pm on TV2. Matt Akersten - 8th May 2008
