CBBC returns to Paradise Cafe

CBBC is to return to the South Pacific for a second series of comedy adventure series Paradise Café.

Endemol-owned indie Initial has returned to the island of Raratonga in the Cook Islands to begin filming on another 13 x 25 minute episodes of the show, in which a group of friends running a café confront sea ghosts determined on sabotaging their business.
 After ridding the island of sea ghosts at the end of series one, the gang decide it’s time to settle down for a quiet summer, but new challenges await them with a mysterious new arrival.

The series stars two British teen actors:

14 year old Holly Bodimeade (represented by Waring & McKenna) plays Megan.
Holly has been interested in performing from a very early age, taking her first drama and music classes at four years old.
After performing locally in theatre and short films in Bristol, she won the lead role in a BBC Radio 4 afternoon play 'Sand' about the Suez Canal crisis.
Her first TV break came in 2007 when she was cast in the CBBC drama ‘Summerhill‘, playing 11 year old Maddy, who is sent to the famously radical school after collapsing from exam stress and undergoes a personal transformation against the backdrop of the school's battle with Ofsted.

18 year old Pax Baldwin (now represented by Bloomfields Management) plays her brother Robbo.

Pax comes from Shawbirch, near Telford. He trained full time at the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London, and has worked extensively in Television, Radio and Musical Theatre. His West End roles include ‘Poor Baby‘ in ‘Whistle Down the Wind‘ at the Aldwych Theatre, ‘Louis‘ in ‘The King and I‘ and ‘Jeremy‘ in ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang‘, both at the London Palladium, whilst he also performed in ‘The Likes of Us‘ at Andrew Lloyd-Webber‘s Sydmonton Festival.
