E street - some trivia
7 April 2007 | by info-5918See all my reviews

Oddly, one of the main characters was mute - who refused to talk because of all the horror in the world. Then, later in the show, there was a mysterious, profound radio DJ, who no one knew the identity of.

Guess what, it was in fact the mute character! One never would of guessed. Australian Soaps at this time were pretty lame, "A country practice" had been running for 10 years and had some ludicrous, unbelievable scripts.

While a lot of Australian Soaps were set in the country, in contrast, e street was set in the inner city.

Melissa Tkautz from this show went on to be a minor Pop star. Bruce Samazan, also one of the shows main characters, went on to star in Neighbours for a while, but eventually left acting and went into real estate (probably a good move).

E street also had Robin Hardy directing it - which was odd as he was famous for directing the cult movie, "The Wicker Man".
