Hey, It's That Guy!
and Retroactive Recognition
- Adam Rickett (Kieran Mitchell) was previously in Coronation Street as Nick Tilsley.
- Lots of Power Rangers alumni have also been in Shortland Street over the years.
- Life Imitates Art: There have been a lot of coincidences between Shortland Street storylines and real life, that it has become known as the "Shortland Street Curse".
- In 2003, Shortland Street Hospital had its back-up generator fail during a power outage - less than two weeks later, the same thing happened at Auckland's Starship Children's Hospital.
