Auckland born Shortland Street beauty Beth Allen started acting at the tender age of eleven, when she was cast in a TV commercial for Whitcoulls.
After being beaten in speech and drama competitions at school by fellow student Anna Jullienne (who plays nurse Maia Jeffries), Beth appeared in many TV roles including Riding High, Xena and Outrageous Fortune. She also recently appeared on The Tribe.
In late 2008 Beth played a role in The Eight: Reindeer Monologues, along with several other Shorty Street actors.
In the summer of 2009 Beth took part in several Sovereign Swim Series around New Zealand, swimming distances of up to 2.8km in the ocean.
Beth's favourite things to do off-set include cooking, travelling, and saying she'll do the gardening, but never actually doing it!
