Two identical teenagers living on opposite sides of the world and different sides of the track, decide to swap places.
Minty Sullivan and Melanie Hobson are physically identical but have completely different personalities and lifestyles. Minty plays the hot young star, Roxanne, of the smash hit Aussie soap, Ocean Beach. She is treated like a princess and driven around in a limo. But with her hordes of adoring fans she feels trapped, unable to live a normal life.
Melanie, by contrast, is an ordinary English schoolgirl living in a small bungalow near her parents hardware shop in boring Bricksworth. Not great at school, her future looks bleak and there seems to be no way for her to achieve her dreams of fame and fortune.
But when Melanie wins a trip to Australia she happens to meet Minty. Amazed at how similar they look, they decide to trade places, creating mayhem for everyone around them. Against the odds they get away with it until Minty starts to fall in love with Melanie’s boyfriend, Cameron, and things begin to get out of hand.

Minty Sullivan and Melanie Hobson live on opposite sides of the world, with different lifestyles and personalities BUT they are physically identical.
Melanie, an English school girl unexpectantly wins a trip to Australia and ‘happens’ to meet Minty (who is in the Australian soap opera - Ocean Beach). Wow, their two worlds colide! With Minty and Melanie very much interested in each other’s life - they take the opportunity to ‘change places’.
From here - mayhem and chaos is all around.
Find out how, what and when Minty and Melanie learn what it is like to be someone else. They have to make a choice as to whether or not to abandon their family, friends and possessions.
The Minty DVD is on sale! But be quick - as Minty sales are going fast!

The series was shot on digital betacam over 11 weeks in Perth, Western Australia, in the summer of 1998. Post production was done at Scottish Television in Glasgow, Scotland.
One of the biggest hurdles to overcome was to find suitable locations in Perth during the hot summer months that could also be convincing as the United Kingdom. At one point there was even a need to re-create a Scottish Castle.
The casting of the lead role was also a difficult and time consuming process, and we searched across Australia and the United Kingdom to find the right person. Someone who could act, sing and convincingly do an Australian and English accent was not easy. At one point we considered using twins, but decided part of the charm of the story was knowing that the same person was playing all roles.
In the end we chose Angela Kelly, a graduate from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. She had to play five different characters, which meant, over the course of the series, she was virtually in every single scene.
There are no reviews for this project.
