H2O - Just Add Water: cast

Angus McLaren as Lewis

Angus McLaren

Angus grew up on a dairy farm near Leongatha, to Melbourne's West. After appearing in a number of amateur productions for the Leongatha Lyric Theatre, as well as school productions, he made the leap to professional work with a recurring role on the ABC series Something in the Air, when he was just 12 years old. Several further TV credits followed, including the childrens' series Worst Best Friends (CoxKnight), The Saddle Club (Crawfords) and Fergus McPhail (Burberry), guest roles on Blue Heelers (Southern Star) and Comedy Inc (Crackerjack) and a recurring role on Neighbours (Grundy).

Angus' first main cast role came in 2004 with the children's series Silver Sun for Beyond Simpson Le Mesurier, which aired on both the Seven Network and the ABC. His feature film debut followed in 2005 with the low budget Melbourne feature Court of Lonely Royals, directed by Rohan Michael Hoole. 2005 also saw Angus work on Last Man Standing for Burberry productions, and achieve a solid footing on the commercial voiceover circuit.

In addition to his acting work, Angus is a keen sportsman, excelling at cricket, swimming and AFL football. He is an accomplished singer, drummer and guitarist, and is drummer in local outfit Charlie Broad. The band were semifinalists in Future Rock in 2005, a teen Battle of the Bands competition.

Between seasons 2 and 3 of H2O, Angus debuted alongside Rebecca Gibney and Erik Thomson in the drama series "Packed To The rafters".
